Governor Mary Fallin will join energy industry officials, academic experts and key policy makers in Oklahoma City on Thursday, September 4 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Cox Convention Center for the 2014 Governor’s Energy Conference.


This year’s conference is presented by Governor Fallin and the office of the Oklahoma Secretary of Energy and Environment in partnership with the State Chamber of Oklahoma.


“Oklahoma is a worldwide leader in the energy industry,” said Fallin. “Energy – which includes both fossil fuels and renewable sources like wind power – is also our state’s largest driver of economic growth and job creation. With approximately one in four Oklahoma jobs being energy related, I am proud this conference continues to foster relationships between industry leaders, academics and policy makers to ensure continued prosperity for this industry within the state.”


The conference features input and presentations from leading energy industry executives as well as other industry experts on current energy issues.
