The Governor’s Office of Energy Development will hosted it's fifth annual Governor’s Utah Energy Development Summit in Salt Lake City on May 24-25, 2016. This year’s event hosted over one hundred expert speakers from around the country, as well as elected officials and energy industry leaders.

The 2016 Summit addressed regional, national and international energy issues, encouraging the participation of energy professionals from the Intermountain West and far beyond. In Utah, energy not only fuels our diverse economy, but it touches our daily lives, and the Governor’s Utah Energy Development Summit annually recognizes its significance, and aims to promote the sector’s responsible growth in the Intermountain West and throughout the nation.
