10 years ago, gasoline prices were at an all time high, America's dependence on foreign oil was growing, our energy future and security were at risk. America was running out of options. We tackled the issue head on. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and leaders in American business came together to form the Global Energy Institute.
In 2016, two very different visions for U.S. energy policy were presented - one that would limit energy production, and one that would expand it. the U.S. Chamber's Institute for 21st Century Energy launched the Energy Accountability Series to take a closer look at these proposals. Now that we've reached 100 days of the Trump Administration, we're taking a look back and asking "what if" things had turned out differently.
The U.S. Department of Energy is poised to pursue major developments in energy innovation that can “make a difference in the world” due in part to a funding increase in its science programs, said Paul Dabbar, the department’s Under Secretary for Science today.
As we discussed earlier this month, Energy Innovates is the Global Energy Institute’s new initiative that highlights some of the most interesting energy projects and people that are changing our energy landscape. Our first stop is an exciting project in Hoover, Alabama, that is demonstrating energy innovation and new, efficient technologies that will impact your daily life.
