Creating a North Carolina Energy Vision
North Carolina stakeholders agree that the energy landscape is changing. They also agree that we should be deliberate in planning for an uncertain future.  A consensus energy vision would help us efficiently realize the potential of North Carolina’s energy economy and ensure an energy landscape that appropriately balances cleanliness, affordability, reliability, and safety. This panel will explore what a North Carolina energy vision should consider, what stakeholders can best help advance a visioning initiative and how these stakeholders can actually kick off such an initiative.
