webinar graphic

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an array of new challenges for the nation’s energy sector, with utilities and operators of critical infrastructure working to keep the lights on, homes heated, and fuel moving—all while confronting their own workforce and operational limitations. The federal government, states and industry need to work together to ensure the continuation of these critical services, which becomes much more difficult during a pandemic. Join NCSL and other experts as they examine how the energy sector is responding to COVID-19, the biggest challenges remaining, and the role that states play in preparing for and facilitating this vital work.
