U.S. Energy Policy 2017: Making Carbon Great Again?

Monday, October 2, 2017
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
1.5 hours of in-person CLE credit, pending approval

The nation's energy mix has undergone dramatic changes in the past decade. Coal use has declined precipitously while natural gas and renewables have climbed. Some claim this was due to a regulatory "war on coal" while others credit technological change and market forces. The Trump Administration promises to expand fossil fuel production, coal in particular, by reducing regulatory burdens and subsidies for alternatives. Is this realistic? Can coal be revived? Can renewables compete without subsidies? Does federal energy policy matter anymore? Or is the real action at the state level and in private markets? Join a distinguished panel of energy policy experts to discuss the future of energy policy in the United States.
