Columbia Energy Straight Talk with Cheryl LaFleur and David Hill: What Makes Policy Change Successful?

February 25 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Join the Center on Global Energy Policy for Columbia Energy Straight Talk, a new discussion series hosted by David Hill, CGEP Adjunct Senior Research Scholar, and Cheryl LaFleur, CGEP Distinguished Visiting Fellow. The series will focus on frank, practical, bipartisan discussions on how to make change happen in the energy world. The hosts bring decades of energy experience in the public and private sectors, including David’s service as General Counsel of the U.S. Department of Energy and Cheryl’s as Commissioner and Chairman at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Each episode will focus on a different topic related to energy and climate change, and will include a special guest. In the premier episode, Cheryl and David will host Betsy Moler, former FERC Chairman and Deputy Secretary of Energy, who led or was involved in every major change in the electricity and natural gas worlds for several decades–including some that were transformative and others that did not move forward. The discussion will focus on what makes policy change successful, and what we can learn from past successes and failures to advance today’s efforts on energy and climate change.

The second episode on Thursday, March 25 from 4:00-5:00 p.m. EDT will include a discussion with a leader at the forefront of energy issues and the changes that might take place in 2021. The third episode will take place on Thursday, April 29 from 4:00-5:00 p.m. EDT with a guest to be announced.
