National Energy Policy Needed

See January 28, 2016 EEIA Letter to Congress re Energy Policies



Late last year, the U.S. House passed a comprehensive bill setting forth U.S. energy policy for the 21st Century. Now the Senate is debating a similar measure. Its provisions, if they become law, will have a major impact on your businesses as suppliers to energy operations.

Key provisions in the framework include:

Expanding and modernizing energy delivery infrastructure to carry abundant supplies of oil and gas to consumers. This includes encouraging greater investment and eliminating permitting delays in pipeline capacity, as well as investment in the electricity grid.

Developing an adequate energy workforce, including involving the Department of Energy and its national laboratories, community colleges, and public-private partnerships, to better coordinate and leverage existing resources to foster an energy and manufacturing workforce for the 21st century.

Improving coordination and strengthening energy partnerships with allies, enhancing international energy security, and evaluating decisions on energy exports based on national interest, strengthening our allies and leveraging our resources to advance our foreign policy goals.

Supporting solutions that harness new technologies and private sector innovation for more efficient energy usage in households, businesses, and the federal government.

Addressing regulatory overreach of the Environmental Protection Agency, including its power plant rules under Section 111 of the Clean Air Act and its recent ozone proposal.

This is a focused and serious effort to get a bill to the President that he will sign, and represents a big step toward a more comprehensive energy policy that relies heavily on the private sector. EEIA is following and participating in this process and will weigh in at every opportunity. The outcomes will have a major impact on investments that flow to suppliers to energy production and infrastructure markets.
