At the United States Energy Association’s (USEA) 6th Annual State of the Energy Industry Forum, leaders from the natural gas, wind, solar, nuclear, mining, petroleum and financial sectors shared their take on what the future might hold for the United States’ comprehensive energy portfolio.
AGA President and CEO David Parker told the audience, “We represent the customer, so the price of natural gas is critical to us. And I’m pleased to report today that with new shale discoveries across the country, we’re more confident about the natural gas supply picture than ever before. This clean, efficient, reliable, American fuel is and will be available to us in abundant quantities.”
“No industry here today is going away, so there is no need for a fuel war,” he continued. “Our country needs all the energy sources it can get if the economy is going to recover. We’re optimistic about the overall energy picture in the United States.”
A consensus was reached among the speakers that the country’s often-divisive political environment could play a major role in the momentum- or lack thereof- of any climate and energy legislation.
