Senator Mark Warner invites you to attend the 2016 Virginia Energy Policy Forum from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM on Friday, June 17 at the Hampton Roads Convention Center. The forum is an opportunity for energy and climate stakeholders, academia, local government and interested citizens to gather for educational panels and seminars that will review major national and international regulatory provisions that will not only affect the Virginia economy but the way we diversify our energy moving forward.

The forum’s keynote speaker will be Dr. Ernest Moniz, the 13th U.S. Secretary of Energy. Other featured speakers include representatives from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the US Navy, Amazon, Dominion Resources, and Virginia Natural Gas, just to name a few. This event is the first of its kind in our area and is a great opportunity to learn about energy policy, breakthroughs in energy efficiency and storage, clean energy technology, cybersecurity for the energy grid, and energy security and resiliency. The 2016 Virginia Energy Policy Forum is a nonpartisan, nonpolitical US Senate event. The event is free to all participants, but registration is required by Tuesday, May 31.
