SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Two top officials in President Barack Obama's administration are in New Mexico to discuss the potential for renewable energy development in the Southwest and the challenges of exporting that power to market.

Interior Secretary Sally Jewell and Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz will be among those at Monday's meeting in Santa Fe.

The gathering of federal, state and tribal officials is part of the administration's effort to develop recommendations regarding the transmission, storage and distribution of energy.

Previous meetings in other states have covered rail and barge transportation issues, the growing connections between natural gas and electricity production and infrastructure limitations in developing shale resources.

One of the focuses during the New Mexico meeting will be how the federal government works with tribes when it comes to energy development and transmission.
