Daines to lead Montana Energy 2016 summit

U.S. Sen. Steve Daines revealed plans this week to lead the Montana Energy 2016 summit, taking place from March 30 to 31 in Billings, Montana, which will focus on opportunities to take advantage of the state’s energy potential.

“Montana holds a vital role in securing our nation’s all-of-the-above energy strategy and it’s vital that we work together to ensure our state remains an energy leader for years to come,” Daines said. “Montana Energy 2016 will bring together key stakeholders to help increase innovation and move Montana’s energy opportunities to the next level.”

In addition to Daines, who is on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, the summit will also be sponsored by the Montana Contractors’ Association, the Montana Coal Council, the Montana Petroleum Association, the Montana Chamber Foundation and KLJ. Energy professionals, policy influencers, contractors and other industry stakeholders are invited to attend and learn about how the state’s energy sector can grow.

“Montana can help power the world — but only if we work together to increase opportunity and limit efforts to hinder any part of Montana’s diverse energy portfolio,” Daines said. “Through Montana Energy 2016, we will keep Montana at the forefront of the nation’s energy conversation.”
