The World Affairs Council of Kentucky and Southern Indiana is bringing to town a global expert on Green energy.
Dr. Susan Tierney, managing principal partner with the Washington, D.C.-based Analysis Group, will speak about Green opportunities in Kentucky and China Monday, May 21 at The Green Building.
Tierney is scheduled to present “Competing for the future: Sustainable energy in China and at home” at 6:30 p.m. including a question and answer period.
A former assistant secretary for policy at the U.S. Department of Energy, Tierney will discuss how the United States stacks up to global energy competitors and where we’re headed, according to a news release.
In addition to her past role at the Department of Energy, Tierney is an expert on energy policy and economics, specializing in the electric and gas industries.
She has consulted with companies, governments, non-profits, and other organizations on energy markets, economic and environmental regulation and strategy, and energy facility projects, according to the release.
Her expert witness, business consulting, and arbitration services have involved industry restructuring, market analyses, regulatory policies for renewables and energy efficiency. She is a member of the Bipartisan Policy Center’s energy project and the Secretary of Energy’s Advisory Board. Recently, she was also appointed to the National Petroleum Council.
