DOE Begins Quadrennial Energy Reviews
The Department of Energy released information on the first six public meetings to collect stakeholder input into the Quadrennial Energy Review, which was launched by President Obama in January. DOE will hold a series of meetings to discuss and receive comments on issues related to the development of a comprehensive strategy for the infrastructure needed to transport, transmit and deliver energy to consumers.
The Nation’s current infrastructure is increasingly challenged by transformations in energy supply, markets, and patterns of end use; issues of ageing and capacity; impacts of climate change; and cyber and physical threats. The QER will serve as a roadmap to help address these challenges.
The first of these stakeholder and public engagement meetings is scheduled for Friday, April 11, 2014, at the US Capital Visitor’s Center in the Congressional Auditorium. The meeting will focus on infrastructure resilience and vulnerabilities, including cyber and physical threats, climate, and interdependencies.
Details for the next five QER stakeholder public meetings are still being finalized, but will include a meetings on infrastructures constraints in New England, to be held in Hartford, Conn.; infrastructure constraints related to Bakken, to be held in North Dakota; electricity transmission storage and distribution in the West, to be held in Portland, Ore.; petroleum product transmission and distribution, including carbon dioxide and enhanced oil recovery, to be held in Louisiana; and rail, barge, and truck transportation, to be held in Chicago.
