This is Derek Miller, Speaking on Business. The Utah Office of Energy Development takes a thoughtful, measured approach to energy policy — prioritizing affordability, reliability and sustainability. They are also a Presenting Sponsor for the upcoming One Utah Summit, our state’s premier business summit. Deputy Director Harry Hansen joins us with more.

Harry Hansen:
Energy seems so simple: We flip a switch, and there is light. We turn a key or press a button, and the car engine starts. But behind this simplicity is a complex world of infrastructure and delivery systems.

Today, we are managing rapidly changing energy technologies and priorities while working to keep our energy affordable and reliable because that’s the foundation of strong economies. It’s also the key to our national security. In this evolving world of energy, there are opportunities and challenges, too.

At the One Utah Summit, we’ll be untangling some of these complexities during our presentation titled “Powering Our Future: The Relationship Between Energy, the Economy, and Security.” We’ll also celebrate OxEon Energy, a local energy pioneer that is taking its technologies to new worlds, literally, and actively creating the energy future of tomorrow.
