The Salt Lake Chamber and Utah Office of Energy is excited to announce the 2014 Fall Energy Excursion, October 21-22, 2014, to Utah’s coal country and southeastern energy producing counties.


The one-night, two-day excursion builds upon the success of previous excursions to the Uinta Basin (Fall 2013) and Milford/Beaver (Spring 2014). Join us as we head south to explore, engage and learn in southeastern Utah.

This policy-centered excursion will explore a region directly facing the realities and impact of national policy decisions. The itinerary will feature a focused look at unique energy, outdoor recreation and tourism, regulatory, water, and rural economic development issues.


Excursion trip participants will engage with some of Utah's top business and government leaders, participating in high-level briefings and site visits to learn:


Epicenter of Changing Energy Landscape: Why southeastern Utah and its coal resources are the epicenter of a national discussion on the future of energy policy. We will see facilities and meet the leaders of companies investing in our state.

Rural Economic Development: How Wasatch Front businesses can capitalize on the diverse and growing economy of the southeastern Utah and connect with local stakeholders, business leaders and elected officials.

Environmental Stewardship: How Utah balances natural resource development with its conservation and recreation goals, proactively manages air, water, and species concerns, and how those sites that are developed are ultimately reclaimed to the highest standard.

Public Lands: How the debate over public lands effects this region.


Early-bird registration is $400 until Tuesday, September 30, 2014. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.

“Utah’s economy is thriving in-part to its diverse and abundant energy resources. However, our state is also at the epicenter of national discussions on our energy future that have the potential to greatly impact many of our most important development and generation activities. This trip will provide business and community leaders a unique opportunity to see firsthand many of the facilities most likely to be impacted.”


- Laura Nelson, Director, Utah Office of Energy Development and former Chair, Salt Lake Chamber Energy and Minerals Task Force
