Hurricane Sandy and Energy Infrastructure. This coming Monday, June 17, the Bipartisan Policy Center will host Thomas King from National Grid U.S. and Christopher Baldwin from the Hess Corporation to discuss what they learned from Hurricane Sandy and what we can do to better prepare for the hurricane season already underway this year. We’ll begin at 10:30AM at the National Press Club. Members of the public and press are invited to attend; online registration is available here.

Cybersecurity and the Electric Grid. As you may know, BPC announced last month a new initiative that combines the expertise of two projects – Energy and Homeland Security. In a recent blog post, we pose some questions we hope to address through this initiative. Join the conversation on Twitter – #cybersecurity, #BPCGrid

New Geopolitics of Petroleum and Natural Gas. Earlier this week, BPC Senior Fellow Pete Domenici convened the first of four discussion series on the changing geopolitics due to the gas and oil boom. Co-sponsored by David Goldwyn of Goldwyn Global Strategies, LLC, the event drew a crowd of more than 200 attendees to hear Senator Lisa Murkowski, Ed Morse (Citibank), Paul Sankey (Deutsche Bank), Katherine Spector (CIBC World Markets), Luis Giusti (CSIS), Carlos Pascual (U.S. Dept. of State), Dan Yergin (IHS), Adam Sieminski (EIA), Bennett Johnston (Johnston & Associates), and Robin West (PFC).
