Governors' Wind Energy Coalition

June 15, 2015


We’re looking forward to seeing you at the Governors’ Wind Coalition’s meeting in Washington, D.C., this Friday, June 19. The meeting is at the Bipartisan Policy Center, 1225 Eye Street, NW. If you haven’t done so already, please RSVP Tracey ( as soon as possible.

Dan Alpert from New Mexico Senator Martin Heinrich’s office has been added to the agenda and will talk about the senator’s recently introduced electric transmission bill. Senator Heinrich is a member of the Senate’s Energy & Natural Resources Committee.

We’ve put together an extraordinary agenda featuring many of the nation’s energy policy leaders. Here are a few highlights:

  • Dan Utech, President Obama’s Deputy Assistant for Energy and Climate will discuss relevant portions of the Quadrennial Energy Review
  • Jose Zayas, Director of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Wind and Water Power Office will discuss the Wind Vision report
  • Jeff Chen will talk about Tesla’s new storage technology
  • Jonathan Weisgall from Berkshire Hathaway Energy will describe the scope and reach of one the nation’s leading renewable energy utilities
  • Senate’s Energy and Natural Resources Committee staff will discuss the status of proposed energy legislation
  • GE representatives will talk about their recently announced “digital wind” farm technology.

We’ve made a few minor adjustments to the agenda to ensure that the meeting proceeds smoothly. An updated agenda is attached.

The wind industry’s response to the meeting has been very positive. Industry representatives are interested in hearing your state briefings in the afternoon. It’s an excellent opportunity to engage with them. If you have a formal presentation, please send it to Tracey by this Thursday, and informal remarks are welcome.

We’ll see you on Friday.
