National Capital Area Chapter of the
U.S. Association for Energy Economics
The National Capital Area Chapter of the United States Association for Energy Economics (NCAC-USAEE) is a non-profit organization of 400 energy professionals in the Washington metropolitan area. We are dedicated to providing a forum that fosters the exchange of ideas and the sharing of professional experiences. We also seek to promote an improved understanding of energy economics and energy related issues by all interested parties.
To accomplish these goals we hold lunch meetings (usually on the third Friday of each month) to provide an opportunity for networking, followed by a presentation from an expert speaker on a timely and important energy topic. Our luncheons are held in downtown Washington, DC. We also hold an annual dinner, where our members have a chance to interact in a more relaxed setting, and we co-host a comprehensive, one-day, policy conference, collaborating in recent years with Johns Hopkins SAIS, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and Georgetown University. We have begun sponsoring field trips to energy-related sites in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Please check on this site for updated luncheon, conference and field-trip schedules.
The President's Letter
The importance of energy in our society is immense and the degree of change we witness every day—in energy technology, supply and demand, and policy—seems even greater.
NCAC member Mark Finley well captured the challenges we face in his Member of the Month profile. He asked, “…how does the world get the energy it needs; provide a growing population with light, heat, and power; improve peoples’ lives and lift people out of poverty; and accomplish it all in ways that are sustainable, secure, and affordable?” These challenges are large and serious. What a great time to be in the energy industry.
And what a great time to be part of the NCAC.
As of the beginning of 2017, we have close to 400 members—nearly double our membership in 2011. And, thirteen percent of our members are students. This reflects strong interest in the energy industry and also augurs well for the future of our organization.
Your involvement in the NCAC keeps you on the forefront of the many issues facing the energy industry, and the NCAC flourishes thanks to the participation and engagement of all our members.
