Digital Democracy on Tap convened on May 11, 2021, to discuss the status of energy in Kansas. We covered energy-related bills that went to the Kansas Statehouse this session, along with Evergy's newly released Integrated Resource Plan and its projections for the next 10-15 years. Our panelists:

  • Brian Grimmett | Energy and Environment Reporter, KMUW and Kansas News Service
  • Ashok Gupta | Senior Energy Economist, Climate & Clean Energy Program of the Natural Resources Defense Council
  • Brett Leopold | President, ITC Great Plains
  • Mike Ross | Senior VP of Government Affairs and Public Relations, Southwest Power Pool
  • Representative Mark Schreiber | Kansas Legislature Vice Chair of the Energy, Utilities, and Telecommunications Committee

Here's the recorded conversation:
