John Deskins, director of West Virginia University’s Bureau of Business & Economic Research, is testifying on Capitol Hill before the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy & Natural Resources on the importance of energy innovation to economic growth and competitiveness. His testimony will begin at 10 a.m. Thursday (July 25).
“In West Virginia, the real key is finding things that are related to energy that build on our comparative advantage, that build on our historic strengths that are still different, new, innovative and growing — not just simply the extraction and exportation of raw coal and gas but other industries that relate to energy and benefit from local abundant supply of energy.” — Dr. John Deskins, director of WVU’s Bureau of Business & Economic Research
