U.S. Energy Policy 2017: Making Carbon Great Again?

Date: 
Monday, October 2, 2017 - 4:30pm

The Great Lakes Energy Institute (GLEI), Center for Business Law and Regulation, and the Property & Environment Research Center (PERC) will host a panel of energy experts, featuring GLEI Founding Board Member Dr. Walter Culver, to discuss the future of energy policy in the United States. 

The nation's energy mix has undergone dramatic changes in the past decade. Coal use has declined precipitously while natural gas and renewables have climbed. Some claim this was due to a regulatory "war on coal" while others credit technological change and market forces. The Trump Administration promises to expand fossil fuel production, coal in particular, by reducing regulatory burdens and subsidies for alternatives. Is this realistic? Can coal be revived? Can renewables compete without subsidies? Does federal energy policy matter anymore? Or is the real action at the state level and in private markets? 

This event will be held in the Case Western Reserve University School of Law Moot Courtroom (A59) located at 11075 East Boulevard, Cleveland, Ohio.
