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, energy policy conference, recently in association with the Center for Strategic and International Studies. 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.
