OurEnergyPolicy’s Energy Leaders Luncheon Series brings together energy leaders from across the sector to engage in substantive, civil dialogue on U.S. energy policy.
The OEP Energy Leaders Luncheon Series, now in its sixth year, features well-known speakers from the private, public, academic, and nonprofit sectors who lead thoughtful discussions on key energy topics. Lunch attendees representing different viewpoints and sectors, including finance, corporate, government, academia, and advocacy, engage in serious, spirited dialogue. The impact of these discussions is amplified through our online community of more than 1,500 energy professionals.
These events—bringing together a diverse group of energy leaders from throughout the area—help to advance OEP’s non-partisan mission of enhancing the policymaking process by facilitating substantive, civil discourse on key issues. Increasingly, federal and state officials and journalists use our platform and content to support their work on energy legislation and regulation. Our goal is to drive sound energy policies on local, regional, and national levels.
