Stopping Clean Power: Local Roadblocks and Energy Permitting

October 28, 2022 at 3:00 pm ET to 4:15 PM ET

AEI, Auditorium
1789 Massachusetts Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20036

In the years leading up to the COVID-19 pandemic, the US experienced the largest energy bonanza in history. Simultaneous booms in oil, natural gas, and renewable power massively increased US energy production that made this new energy extremely affordable. Meanwhile, local and state governments maintain and erect new roadblocks to energy transportation, blocking consumers from accessing these new, cheaper, and often cleaner sources of energy. How can we prevent these roadblocks from harming the American energy economy and wasting the benefits of this massive energy boom?
Join AEI’s James W. Coleman, Brookings Institution’s Sanjay Patnaik, and George Washington University Law School’s Robert Glicksman to discuss these obstacles and the regulatory, legislative, and legal solutions that will unlock permitting for a cheaper, cleaner, and more secure energy grid.
If you are unable to attend, we welcome you to watch the event live on the American Enterprise Institute (AEI)  event page. After the event concludes, a full video will be posted within 24 hours.
