Driven by technological innovation, America is in the midst of an energy revolution that will help meet the world’s growing demand for energy while reducing emissions. This innovation has propelled the U.S. to become the world’s largest oil and natural gas producer—done under the strictest environmental standards. Our growing renewable energy industry and nuclear industries hold great promise to produce more emissions-free electricity, even while more work lies ahead developing the technologies of tomorrow that promise to decarbonize our economy without sacrificing reliability or affordability. American energy has spawned a manufacturing renaissance, which has created trade opportunities and transformed our economy.

- A 'Windfall Profits Tax' Would Reduce Energy Production When We Need It MostProposals from Congress for a windfall profits tax on oil companies during the most recent rise in global oil prices is a misguided policy.
- Record High Russian Oil Imports Show Need for Smarter Domestic Energy PolicyU.S. energy production can improve domestic energy security and help allies and partners reduce their dependence on Russia’s oil and natural gas.
- The Future of Energy Depends on Building Grid Resilience TodayToday’s electric grid is growing in demand as energy needs increase. Here’s why the future of energy and infrastructure depends on increased grid resilience.
The U.S. Chamber’s Global Energy Institute is playing a leading role in the fight to modernize our energy infrastructure, including pipelines, transmission lines, and other facilities needed to meet growing energy demands. Rather than artificial policy constraints through canceled projects and mandates, the Chamber supports efforts to reduce the environmental footprint of energy production and is working on bipartisan solutions to allow the U.S. to maintain its competitive edge and utilize our abundant energy resources.
Energy innovation and sustainability experts shared how businesses can work together to address climate change.
