The long-awaited 2016 election will be over, its twists and turns recorded as high and low water marks for comparing future election cycles. With eyes turning to a new POTUS, what are the likely changes and opportunities in the next 4 years? Is there reason for optimism in coal? It’s not just the POTUS that matters!
JOIN US as the Honorable Charles D. McConnell, an energy industry veteran and former Assistant Secretary of Energy for two years during the Obama administration, shares an early perspective of the post-election landscape. Mr. McConnell will address energy sustainability and ways the coal and fossil energy sector can progress a positive policy agenda, exploring these topics:
- What room is there for coal in a Clinton administration’s vision of a "clean energy" future?
- How does the impact of the strongest anti-establishment candidate in decades play out with a win, or a loss, for Donald Trump?
- Who is likely to lead the Department of Energy, and the EPA, and how will federal agency priorities and regulatory initiatives be guided by the new President?
- What are the headwinds and tailwinds in the market, as relates to EPA and COP22?
