Tradeoffs & Transitions: Exploring Outcomes for U.S. Energy Infrastructure

Event Date: 
December 9, 2020

The development of energy systems and long-stalled infrastructure initiatives is expected to rapidly accelerate with the incoming Biden Administration and a new session of Congress. As public leaders anticipate another wave of stimulus, state and local governments, companies and utilities are considering a range of scenarios for infrastructure expansion and evaluating costs vs. benefits. But very few tools are readily available to rapidly and objectively explore the vast range of options and tradeoffs.

On Wednesday, Dec. 9, 2020, Noon to 1 p.m., join Dr. Carey King, Assistant Director of the Energy Institute and Asher Price, reporter for the Austin-American Statesman and 2019 UT Energy Journalism Fellow, for Tradeoffs & Transitions: Exploring Outcomes for U.S. Energy Infrastructure, an in-depth analysis about the future of energy infrastructure policy and the prospect for these new measures in the changing landscape of the federal government. Using the Energy Futures Dashboard, a new online interactive tool created by the Energy Institute, the conversation will consider the challenges and variables that could impact major supplies and demands of energy through the year 2050 across the U.S and what possible outcomes may result from infrastructure development around the country.

Details and registration.
