NETL’s Brian Anderson, executive director of Biden Administration’s Interagency Working Group (IWG) on Coal and Power Plant Communities and Economic Revitalization, joined members of industry, academia and government agencies to address decarbonized energy and job opportunities for the state of West Virginia during the Getting to Zero virtual panel, hosted June 2-3.
