The summit will also include panel discussions, featuring experts from the energy field, on several topics, including

 • A discussion of next steps in addressing the natural gas needs in the New England region

 • The changing regulatory arena for electric transmission and how pricing, siting and competition are changing this sometimes sleepy portion of the electric bill

 • A deep dive into key sustainable energy developments at the NH Public Utilities Commission.

In addition, leading candidates for statewide office have been invited to present their view on energy issues to the summit.
