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 Chamber of Commerce of the United States of America (“the Chamber”) appreciates the opportunity to comment on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (“EPA’s”) proposed amendments to the Standards of Performance for Greenhouse Gas Emissions From New, Modified, and Reconstructed Stationary Sources: Electric Utility Generating Units, Proposed Rule, Docket ID No. EPA–HQ–OAR–2013–0495; FRL–9987–85–OAR, 83 Fed. Reg. 65424 (Dec. 20, 2018) (the “Proposal” or “Proposed Rule”).
As we look back on CERAWeek 2019, it is once again apparent just how much the energy sector has become a high tech industry. The theme of this year’s conference, attended by Global Energy Institute president and CEO Karen Harbert, was “Silicon Valley Meets the Oil Patch.” Indeed, a glance at the attendee and exhibitor list may lead one to think that this was a Silicon Valley conference.
