Energy and climate policy has major consequences for our economy and ultimately for our way of life, as we have been recently reminded by a number of climate related extreme weather events. While there has not been consensus on a national energy policy, there have been significant initiatives in dealing with climate and energy. In September of 2013, the EPA proposed the first uniform national limits on the amount of carbon pollution that future power plants will be allowed to emit. Similar proposed limits for existing power plants are anticipated in the near future.  Proposed appliance standards at DOE have the potential to reduce carbon emissions through energy efficiency, and new EPA vehicle emission standards for heavy duty and eventually for light duty trucks have the potential to achieve major energy savings.  The U.S. Department of Defense, the largest energy consumer in the U.S. government, has taken significant actions to (1) research and test alternative energy sources, (2) implement energy efficiency measures and (3) reduce its carbon footprint.  Our panel will consider a number of timely issues facing Congress and the federal agencies as they step up their initiatives on alternative energy, energy efficiency and reduction of carbon emissions.
