As stated in my book, America Needs America’s Energy: Creating Together the People’s Energy Plan, “Future generations are depending on us to keep the American dream alive. For too long we in America have been wasting time blaming the energy industry or the government for failure to adopt a national energy strategy, when we should be responsible for creating the plan. As consumers of energy, we must drive the process, evaluating how we can best leverage our natural resources here at home to ensure long-term energy independence and security. American citizens must take individual responsibility for the state of this great nation, striving to protect the land we call home.”
The 24th Annual/Anniversary of IEPC (Energy Policy Conference) – Roundtable/Summit was held August 11, 2016, at the Renaissance Hotel in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The roundtable was hosted by IEPC, The Energy Advocates and the Master of Energy Program, University of Tulsa.
Roundtable participants included Representatives of state and federal government, chamber of commerce, public relations firm, concerned citizens, various areas of the energy sector, professors, think-tanks, energy management students from across the U.S., and the media.
Several issues were discussed regarding energy issues and views. Since that time, we have seen continued dialogue regarding the ever-changing landscape of energy and other economic areas of interest. The energy sector will need to form alliances with other economic sectors in 2020 and beyond. One company, IngenuitE, is looking at ways to assist energy companies entering and maintaining digital transformation. They are able to provide consulting to energy companies.
