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.
To meet our growing challenges—like updating crumbling roads and bridges, addressing water quality, expanding broadband access, combatting climate change, and strengthening our energy security—the permitting process simply must be improved.
