The U.S. Department of Energy is hosting a public meeting on the Quadrennial Energy Review (QER) in New Orleans on May 27, 2014, with Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz, Deputy Secretary of the Interior Mike Connor and Senator Mary Landrieu.

The first-ever QER focuses on energy infrastructure to identify the threats, risks, and opportunities for U.S. energy security, economic competitiveness, and environmental responsibility, enabling the federal government to translate policy goals into a set of integrated actions.
