America's Energy Agenda: New Prices, New Policies?
How price and infrastructure investment trends are affecting the energy marketplace


Energy experts convened on April 21, 2016 in Washington, D.C. for “America's  Energy Agenda: New Prices, New Policies?” — a two-panel program, sponsored by WGL and POLITICO, that explored price and infrastructure investment trends and how they are affecting the energy marketplace.


In conjunction with the event, POLITICO featured an op-ed by Dr. Lou Hutchinson, WGL’s vice president and chief revenue officer. In the article, Dr. Hutchinson outlines the need for cities to embrace diversified sources of energy generation as it will enable them to compete both economically and environmentally. He also points to WGL's own diversified solution, Distributed Impact™, as the viable answer to the questions posed by the rapidly changing energy landscape. 

The event opened with a greeting from Gautam Chandra, WGL’s senior vice president of Strategy, Business Development and Non-Utility Operations, who outlined the company’s evolution and emphasized the role Distributed Impact™ will play in the advancement of energy innovation in the private and public sectors.
 “At WGL, we’ve seen our fair share of evolutions in the energy market,” said Chandra. “In the last 5 years, we have found that the smart design of diversified energy systems is what is really in demand, specifically those that integrate multiple resources with new technology and sophisticated data analysis.”

Nick Juliano, POLITICO Deputy Energy Editor, moderated the first panel which focused on the new energy infrastructure agenda and how it will be impacted with a new administration and legislation. Scott Segal, panel member and Partner at Bracewell, LLP, a law and government relations firm that serves the energy, finance, and technology industries, stressed the importance of diversified energy systems. “If you do not back up solar with natural gas or coal, what you'll have is a lack of reliability and significant problems.” he said.

The second panel, moderated by POLITICO Energy Reporter Elana Schor, discussed how the evolving energy landscape will affect public policy. “Clean energy is the future of the world” said Bob Deans, Director of Strategic Engagement at the Natural Resources Council. “When you invest in wind and solar, you're investing in the future.”

A complete list of speakers and moderators follows:
Senator Angus King (D-ME)
Denise Bode, Principal at Cornerstone Government Affairs

Lisa Jacobson, President, Business Council for Sustainable Energy
