CONCURRENT & GOVERNMENT TRACK SESSIONS 15-22
Tuesday, September 25 from 8:30 - 10:15am

Government Track

15. Government Session - Informing Federal Energy Resource and Petroleum Policies in an Era of Abundance (Richmond / Roanoke)

Greg Adams, Presiding
Economist
Energy Information Administration

President Trump has issued two executive orders promoting energy independence and an America-first offshore energy strategy to reduce "agency actions that potentially burden the safe, efficient development of domestic energy resources" and to "encourage energy exploration and production." Although both executive orders mention renewable energy, the focus has been fossil fuels, especially oil and natural gas. Panel members will address assessments of the domestic energy resource endowment and the extent to which Federal energy policies could help meet near- and longer-term energy needs, increase energy security, and provide revenue to the U.S. Treasury. Despite increasing levels of domestic production, the Strategic Petroleum Reserve remains crucial to US energy security in the face of disruptions. How is the SPR adapting to Administration priorities? Among the related topics will be the difference between long-term and short-term responses to energy disruptions and fiscal terms for use of Federal energy resources.
