Based on interest and our desired outcomes, PEC is adjusting the format of the Energy Infrastructure 2.0 conference. Originally scheduled to be two days, we have determined that it will be more effective to convene a facilitated workshop session on Wednesday September 5th at the Westin Convention Center Hotel in Pittsburgh. The focus of the workshop will be on natural gas infrastructure issues, particularly the process for siting intrastate infrastructure not within the jurisdiction of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
While our process has been altered, PEC remains committed to revising the White Paper and to produce a report stating our recommendations for improvements in Pennsylvania’s energy infrastructure review and approval process. If you have comments, questions or suggestions concerning the White Paper, or would like to remain informed of PEC’s work on energy infrastructure issues, please contact Jack Ubinger (email@example.com) or John Walliser (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Due to the change in format, we are no longer accepting registrations for the conference.

Pennsylvania has it all.
Pennsylvania contains some of the most abundant and diverse energy resources in the world. With the development of the Marcellus and Utica Shale natural gas reserves well underway, the challenge now is to develop an energy infrastructure that can accommodate the delivery of energy to end users most effectively.
Energy production is only part of the equation. Now we must look ahead at delivering all that energy to the open market without unnecessarily impacting private property, public lands, parks, forests, protected open spaces, and other land assets throughout Pennsylvania.
The Pennsylvania Environmental Council invites you to join us for a critical two-day conference that will assess how far Pennsylvania has come in developing its energy resources and turn to the future to meet the challenge of energy delivery.
- What is the best strategy for moving different forms of energy from their point of production to the point of distribution to end-users?
- Is a new approach to planning needed to connect the various energy sources to an “energy delivery superhighway?”
- What should be our priorities for updating and upgrading our energy infrastructure?
- What laws, policies and practices stand in the way of a sustainable, long-term energy transmission and distribution strategy for Pennsylvania?
- What policy initiatives are needed that address the interests of new end users here in Pennsylvania as well as interstate markets?
- How best can Pennsylvania capitalize on its abundant energy resources to support sustainable economic development?
This critical two-day conference will bring together:
- State, county and municipal officials
- Land and policy planners
- Energy resource industry
- Energy technology industry
- Environmental policy organizations
- Other stakeholders
