OurEnergyPolicy.org

OurEnergyPolicy.org Our mission is to facilitate expert discussion on energy policy issues and provide this dialogue as a resource for policymakers, the media and the public.

The ways that Americans produce, distribute, use, and think about energy are more important to our nation’s future than ever before. But despite rapidly evolving financial, national security, and environmental realities – and significant advances in science and technology – our nation’s energy policies are not evolving adequately to meet the challenges of our changing world. The mission of OurEnergyPolicy.org is to facilitate substantive, responsible dialogue on energy policy issues, and provide this dialogue as a resource for the American people, policymakers, and the media. By bringing together energy experts in productive national discourse, OurEnergyPolicy.org enhances the potential of identifying, adopting, and implementing effective energy policy. OurEnergyPolicy.org also serves as a one-stop resource hub for all things energy policy, and includes a free Resource Library, aggregated Energy Headlines, national Energy Events Calendar, Federal and State Legislation pages and more. OurEnergyPolicy.org does not have or endorse any specific political, programmatic, policy, or technological agendas, but rather seeks to encourage a broad discussion of all points of view. OurEnergyPolicy.org empowers energy Experts representing every viewpoint from every sector – industry, academia, government, law, finance, non-profit organizations, think tanks, and more – to participate in and drive public dialogue that will sharpen distinctions, identify points of consensus, and stimulate innovative solutions in our energy policy.
