The two-day conference will feature several keynote speakers including Dr. Robert Mace of the Texas Water Development Board; Representative James L. Keffer, chair of the Energy Resource Committee; and David Blackmon of America’s Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA).

The conference will also feature a Texas Water and Energy Panel that will include Dr. Arnie Vedlitz of the Bush School of Government and Public Service, who will discuss a new National Energy Survey that was done by the Texas A&M Energy Institute and the Institute for Science Technology and Public Policy at the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M.

The study examines the public’s opinion on several topics including concerns regarding various issues resulting from energy generation; sources of information about energy issues; knowledge about energy sources and their environmental impacts; and willingness to pay for or alter behaviors to implement policy options.
