On Thursday, May 9th, the Center for Energy Policy & Management hosted a Shale Gas Knowledge Hub event at Waynesburg Central High School in Greene County, Pennsylvania. The event featured a presentation by CEPM Director Corey Young. The agenda of the presentation was a comprehensive background and discussion of the shale gas industry in Pennsylvania, the Act 13 Impact Fee, and opportunities for municipalities, townships and counties related to shale gas. Following the roughly one-hour long lecture, Corey and other staff of the CEPM took questions from the audience which ensued into a thoughtful and thought-provoking discussion.
The CEPM and SGKH are committed to being a resource for cities, municipalities, government officials and citizens of Southwestern Pennsylvania. Events like these play a key role in our community outreach efforts and provide a unique opportunity to speak with stakeholders of the shale gas industry.
The CEPM and SGKH have several events, webinars, and talks planned in the future, so please be sure to keep an eye out for our invitations!
