WASHINGTON, DC – The Energy Department’s Office of Energy Policy and Systems Analysis will host a public meeting in San Francisco on Thursday to receive stakeholder input to the Quadrennial Energy Review (QER), an administration-wide effort to make recommendations regarding key infrastructure needed for transmission, storage and distribution of energy.
The San Francisco meeting will examine the water-energy nexus. Following panel discussions, the public will have an opportunity to make statements.
The QER, officially launched by President Obama in January, is co-chaired by the White House Domestic Policy Council and Office of Science and Technology Policy, and includes representation from all relevant executive departments and agencies. DOE is playing a key role in development of the QER by providing policy analysis and modeling, and coordinating stakeholder engagement.
