Brookings Mountain West Lecture

"Natural Gas and Unconventional OiI: A New North American Energy Independence"

Charles Ebinger, Senior Fellow, Foreign Policy and Director, Energy Security Initiative

Following years of erosion in U.S. domestic oil production, the combination of plateauing U.S. oil demand, surging domestic unconventional oil production, and improving fracking technology offer the prospect of a reduction in the nation's trade balance, as the $400 billion dollars currently spent overseas to pay for our oil addiction can be available for domestic concerns. This lecture will explore how the development of domestic energy resources, including natural gas, solar energy, nuclear fuel, and other alternatives represent a feasible move to create a new North American energy independence.
