Regional Energy Resource Council
TVA established the Regional Energy Resource Council to obtain advice and views from the public and private sectors and individuals interested in the development and management of energy resources in the Tennessee Valley. A key challenge faced by TVA is managing energy resource priorities among competing objectives and values. These include building and operating diversely fueled power plants and balancing those needs with reducing energy consumption, using energy efficiency measures, and tackling transmission, integration and growth issues. As the operator of the nation's largest public power system, providing reliable and affordable electricity to more than 9 million people in parts of seven southeastern states, gaining routine input from stakeholders contributes to the sustained vitality of the region.
The Council consists of up to 20 members. They are chosen to ensure objectivity and balance in representing a broad range of views and interests, including environmental, industrial, business, consumer, educational, and community leadership interests. All members of the Council are persons possessing demonstrated professional or personal qualifications relevant to TVA's energy resource activities. Meet the Council members here.
Meeting — October 23, 2013
The meetings of the Council, which was established under the guidelines of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, will be open to the public, and the proceedings will be posted on this website.
