U.S. Quadrennial Energy Review (QER) and the National Energy Policymaking Process

Past Event

October 16, 2014

10:30 am - 11:45 am

Please join the Center on Global Energy Policy for a discussion and update on the U.S. Quadrennial Energy Review (QER) with Melanie Kenderdine, Director of the Office of Energy Policy and Systems Analysis, and Energy Counselor to the Secretary. President Obama launched the QER in January 2014, an interagency effort aimed at understanding how the U.S. can meet the goal of affordable, clean, and secure energy and energy services.

The first QER focuses on energy infrastructure and will identify the threats, risks, and opportunities for U.S. energy and climate security against the backdrop of: – The transformation of energy supplies, markets, and patterns of end-use; – Issues of aging and capacity; – Cyber and physical threats; and, – Vulnerabilities related to the growing interdependence of energy systems with water, telecommunications, transportation, and emergency response system.

Ms. Kenderdine will provide an update on the QER and discuss how the QER can address these challenges and enable the U.S. government to translate policy goals into a set of integrated actions at the local, state, regional and federal levels. Center Director Jason Bordoff will moderate the discussion following the presentation. Registration is required. This event is open to press. It will also be livestreamed at: http://energypolicy.columbia.edu/watch. For more information contact: [email protected]
