Full House at "America Answers: Powering Cities" Event
WGL discusses role of "Distributed Impact" in tackling some of our nationís biggest challenges

 

Business leaders, policymakers, government innovators, tech pioneers and scientists gathered at Studio Theatre in Washington, D.C. to discuss and debate technologies, policies and programs related to clean energy, batteries and energy storage, the smart grid, energy efficiency, innovations in oil and gas and more on June 23. The event was a collaboration between WGL and The Washington Post, which runs the America Answers series.

WGL hosted an exclusive breakfast in advance of the day’s program focused on “Powering This City” and, more specifically, the current energy landscape in the D.C. metro area. WGL Chairman and CEO Terry McCallister introduced the breakfast and explained the transformation of both WGL and our surrounding energy ecosystem. WGL’s Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer, Dr. Louis J. Hutchinson III, moderated the panel following Mr. McCallister’s remarks, providing further insight into the future of energy in our area.

The panel included conversation between Uwe Brandes, Executive Director of Georgetown’s Master of Professional Studies in Urban and Regional Planning program, and Tommy Wells, Director of the District Department of the Environment. Led by Dr. Hutchinson, the two panelists each provided their perspective on the greatest challenges facing the District’s current energy infrastructure and capabilities. The discussion, attended by 70 senior leaders in the energy and policy arenas, provided a clear framework for the rest of the day’s conversation about energy answers in cities nationwide.

Dr. Hutchinson kicked off the rest of the day’s event, attended by over 200 energy experts, by providing remarks regarding WGL's point of view on the future of energy – Distributed Impact. Dr. Hutchinson provided additional context during the second half of the day’s program, delving further into Distributed Impact and displaying WGL’s video on the strategy, which can be viewed here. Throughout the day, panels included conversations with Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, Hawaii Governor David Ige, Former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, Former White House Office of Energy and Climate Change Policy Director Carol Browner and many more. Discussion topics revolved around how to tackle the challenges of aging energy infrastructure in our cities, ways in which Millennials are interacting with the energy ecosystem, the current state of our grid system and new solutions for energy storage.
