    Impacts of COVID-19 on the Energy Ecosystem
    May 6, 2020

    2:00 pm EDT, 1:00 pm CDT, 11:00 am PDT

    The current COVID-19 pandemic has introduced a heightened degree of uncertainty in the institutions that make up our country’s energy production and delivery system.  Simultaneously, this broad impact is being felt upstream and downstream in energy economies throughout the world.  An ill-timed global oil market price collapse has compounded this dramatic impact, aggravating the sense of unpredictability.  

    Our speakers will explore how this global pandemic will potentially impede recovery of oil markets, prompt behavioral changes associated with energy use, and dampen energy demand owing to the steep contraction of economic activity. They will also explore how electric utilities and their customers will grapple with questions regarding the goals of affordability, efficiency, and sustainability while addressing matters of vital public health under a “new normal”. 

    Please join AE2C for a dynamic discussion on the near, mid- and long-term impacts COVID-19 on our energy ecosystem. 


    • Brett Perlman, CEO & President, Center for Houston’s Future
    • Jeanette Pablo, General Counsel, Energy Futures Initiative
    • Puja Vohra, Director, Business Strategy, Slipstream Inc.

      Moderated by:  Robert Gee, President, Gee Strategies Group

      Co-hosted by: National Utilities Diversity Council (NUDC) and the Energy Bar Association (EBA)

      We are proud that this year the number of AE2C member-oriented activities in Washington grew significantly, thus giving our members and other energy and environment professionals more opportunities to learn from and interact with one another. We increasingly strive to provide value to our members, so we encourage those who have not yet joined AE2C to please do so to be able to take advantage of what our membership offers.

      I want to welcome to our leadership team Jeanette Pablo who was elected our new Vice President. Jeanette was not a stranger to the AE2C family as she was one of our Founding Members. A seasoned climate and energy policy expert, Jeanette has been a law firm attorney, a federal and state government relations professional, a member of DOE senior management, and is currently General Counsel and Senior VP for a major E & E non-profit. Even with her current obligations, she has graciously agreed to assume AE2C leadership responsibilities, and we are exceedingly fortunate to have her on board. You will see and hear more from Jeanette in the future!

      The year 2020 will see more activities not only in Washington, but also at our Texas chapters in Houston/Austin and in Boston, so please stay tuned. Please read our full newsletter below.


      Happy holidays to all!

      Bob Gee
      President, AE2C
