Energy

America is in the midst of a true energy revolution. After decades of fear over potential energy scarcity, we are now in an era of energy abundance, driven by technological innovation and American know-how.

But will we have the wisdom to capitalize on this opportunity? If we develop smart policies, we can use affordable and abundant energy to launch a manufacturing revival, improve our trade deficit, effectively increase household spending power, and revitalize America’s economy.

Our Priorities

Our goal is to foster a commonsense energy strategy to help keep America secure, prosperous, and clean. 

Priorities

Facilitate the construction of new energy infrastructure
  • Streamline the permitting process while ensuring safe and environmentally responsible projects. 
  • Ensure a regulatory process that provides transparency, predictability, and consistency.
Maintain and enhance America’s energy security through expanded domestic production and investments in energy technology innovation
  • Increase access for production of domestic natural gas, oil, and wind by finalizing a comprehensive offshore energy program. 
  • Enact legislation to direct government research and encourage private investment in the technologies of tomorrow, including energy storage, carbon capture utilization and storage, and advanced nuclear.
