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.
WASHINGTON, D.C.— U.S. Chamber of Commerce Global Energy Institute President & CEO Karen Harbert issued the following statement regarding a new proposed rule revising the definition of “Waters of the United States (WOTUS)”:
“This new rule is good news for businesses, farmers, and localities because it strikes a better balance between economic growth and environmental progress than the rule it replaces.
The goal of our EnergyInnovates initiative is to highlight promising and interesting technology and people that are at the forefront of new energy solutions. This fall, I had a chance to spend some time with the dynamic team at NET Power who are the very definition of innovators—and are changing the way we think about the electric power sector and carbon emissions.
