Welcome to the Oklahoma Energy Summit 2007, in Oklahoma City.
The conference might be termed a first-ever meeting involving a diverse group of constituents who include conservationists, environmentalists, oil and gas industry leaders, wind power and solar advocates and more.
Matt Skinner, a spokesman for the Oklahoma Corporation Commission, says interest in the summit is high. The room at the Oklahoma History Center where the summit is being held holds 232 people; 261 people are attending and another 50 people are waiting to get in.
“And they are from all across the state,” Skinner says.
