Enduring another economic and energy transition

Enduring another economic and energy transition

Randall Luthi, chief energy advisor to Gov. Mark Gordon, gives his keynote address at the 2019 Landscape Discussion on Energy Law and Policy in the Rockies Friday at the Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center in Laramie. Luthi, former Speaker of the Wyoming House, came back to the state in July to join Gordon’s team tasked with developing an energy and natural resource strategy during a time of transition and challenges for the coal sector. While Luthi’s outlook for the future of coal remains optimistic, he noted there are no guarantees for long-term survivability for some coal mines in a rapidly changing industry. Luthi also commented on the need for a balanced portfolio of nontraditional and traditional fuels while also looking to have Wyoming lead the way in expanding the marketability of coal.
