October 05, 2011

(SitNews) Senator Bert Stedman, R-Sitka, was unanimously elected Vice Chairman of the Energy Council during the council’s annual meeting in Anchorage last week.    

“I’m honored to continue serving as part of the Energy Council’s leadership,” said Senator Stedman.  “Legislators’ work at Energy Council is a key part of our efforts to develop Alaska’s energy resources.”

The Energy Council is a legislative organization with members from 12 states, 6 Canadian provinces, and the country of Venezuela.  The council’s mission is to provide a forum to exchange ideas, best practices, and sound solutions on vital energy issues.  The Energy Council does most of its work during four quarterly meetings that rotate among member states and provinces, with a spring meeting in Washington, DC.

“Senator Bert Stedman’s legislative and professional experience combines energy and financial expertise,” said Lori Cameron, Executive Director of the Energy Council.  ”With Senator Stedman as part of the Council’s leadership, we look forward to benefitting even more from Alaska’s energy perspective, as well as his understanding of state finance.”

Over 250 people attended last week’s meeting in Anchorage.  The conference featured a broad range of topics including Northwest energy resources in a global market, the oil outlook for North America, the Arctic’s energy future, shale gas, nuclear power, and water use in energy production.

Senator Stedman has served on the Energy Council’s executive committee for five years.  As Vice Chair he will be involved in facilitating council meetings and reviewing council policy.
