Published
American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)

Addressing energy infrastructure vulnerabilities due to aging, capacity, climate change impacts, and cyder and physical threats.

Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said the Quadrennial Energy Review (QER) “…will provide a roadmap to modernize our energy infrastructure in ways that will support the Nation’s economic competitiveness and energy security, and enable us to move toward a low-carbon future.”

The Secretary notes that most energy infrastructure is privately owned, so investment and engagement by the private sector is necessary to develop and implement effective policies.

To get a greater understanding of how the review and any resulting policies will develop, see two of the documents that provide a foundation for the QER: the Administration’s Blueprint for a Secure Energy Future (March 30, 2011) and the Climate Action Plan (June 25, 2013.)

The first of six public meetings will be in Washington, D.C., at the United States Capitol Visitors Center, Congressional Auditorium on Friday, April 11, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The meeting theme will be “Enhancing Infrastructure Resiliency.”

Additional meetings are planned, but their schedules have not been announced for:

  • Hartford, CT: Infrastructure constraints–New England
  • North Dakota: Infrastructure constraints related to the BAkken
  • Portland, Ore.: Electricity transmission, storage and distribution in the west
  • Louisiana: petroleum product transmission and distribution including carbon dioxide and enhanced oil recovery
  • Chicago, Ill.: Rail, barge and truck transportation
