As the global community continues to grapple with COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read a statement from our President and CEO.

Join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center and the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public and International Affairs for a dynamic public conversation on the future of Pennsylvania’s energy sector. Panelists from across the industry, representing solar, gas, coal, and wind, will provide their insights and perspectives on the future of their respective fields and the state’s energy landscape at large.

Pennsylvania’s diverse and abundant energy resources and its role in national politics has placed the state at the center of national energy policy discourse. Now, as the energy system at large continues to evolve and the Biden-Harris administration formulates ambitious energy policy goals, the state and its energy sector are confronted with numerous challenges and opportunities. What are these challenges and opportunities that will shape Pennsylvania’s energy future, and what can be learned from states’ experiences?

Please join this timely conversation via the web application Zoom, which is accessible through your web browser, the Zoom desktop or mobile app, and by phone. If you wish to join the question and answer period, you must join by app or web. You must register to receive further information on how to join the virtual audience.
