  2. 2. Energy plays a critical role in determining Alaska’s well-being. Energy production, particularly oil, but hope- fully also gas as Alaska works to maintain forward progress on an LNG export project even in a challenged busi- ness environment, is a vital contributor to both the state’s economy and state revenues. The continued produc- tion, cost and availability of energy in all forms also remains important to making Alaska livable, affordable and a good economic environment for business. This annual conference, now in its twelfth year, serves as a one-stop update on the legal, business and regulatory, and increasingly the environmental-based regulatory challenges associated with achieving those objectives. As the continued low in oil prices has made clear, the market for Alaska’s energy resources is affected by a variety of economic and government policy factors at not only the state, but also the national and international levels. In many ways, Alaska continues to be ground zero for how these factors intersect. As in previous years, we have assembled a diversified group of experts to address those topics from a variety of perspectives. The confer- ence remains focused on identifying and discussing those issues which drive Alaska’s future. You will have an opportunity to discuss practical solutions for meeting the challenges facing Alaska and hear directly from key Alaska policymakers on their plans for the coming year. This will be a highly informative and educational conference that you will not want to miss. We hope to see you there. ~ Program Co-Chairs: Mark Johnson, Esq. of Chugach Electric Association, Inc. and Bradford G.
