More than 850 conference attendees watched U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz deliver keynote remarks to the 2013 Energy Information Administration’s Energy Conference in Washington, DC. Even more watched him live on C-SPAN. Secretary Moniz was the opening speaker for an action-packed two-day conference full of federal officials, economists, industry experts, and energy advocates. Secretary Moniz was followed by Thomas Fanning, CEO of Southern Company, who started by noting that the electricity sector is growing five times faster than any other energy sector, and that we all should “use less [energy] when we can.” Other notable speakers at the conference included Senator Lisa Murkowski, Ranking Member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, Aldo Flores-Quiroga, Secretary-General of the International Energy Forum, and Jason Bordoff, Director of Columbia University’s Center on Global Energy Policy and former Special Assistant to President Obama on the staff of the National Security Council, National Economic Council, and Council on Environmental Quality.
