Now that the composition of the 114th Congress has been decided by the November 4th midterm elections, what are the implications for U.S. energy policy?

The new Congress has a long list of energy policy issues to deal with, to include the following headline issues:

  • The future of the proposed Keystone pipeline.
  • U.S. oil and gas exports.
  • Federal subsidies of renewable energy.
  • The state of U.S. energy infrastructure.
  • Maximizing the benefits of the shale revolution.
  • The implications of falling oil prices on policy issues
  • Regulatory impediments to energy development

As one of the world’s largest energy producers at, energy policy issues take on more importance because of increased geopolitical uncertainty and continuing economic fragility, here, in the EU, and in the large emerging economies.

To discuss these and many other energy policy issues the George C. Marshall Institute brought together a panel of distinguished energy policy experts to discuss the challenges facing the new Congress:

  • Joshua C. Zive, Senior Counsel, Policy Resolution Group, Bracewell & Giuliani LLP, substituting for H. Segal, Partner, Bracewell & Giuliani, Washington, DC.
  • Mark Mills, CEO, Digital Power Group; Senior Fellow, Manhattan Institute; and member of the Board of Directors of the George C. Marshall Institute.
  • William O’Keefe, President, Solutions Consulting, Inc.; and CEO of the George C. Marshall Institute.

The roundtable discussion was moderated by John B. Sheldon, Executive Director of the George C. Marshall Institute.
