Energy in America
About the Project
Energy in America is a project exploring the ways in which energy impacts various regions of the United States. Whether through a history rooted in the development of indigenous natural resources or by providing the direction for future industry or activity, we examine the political, economic, security, and social value of energy throughout the country.
The project highlights ways in which energy is contributing to (or detracting from) social and economic mobility across the country to analyze and understand the opportunities and challenges facing policymakers as they try to harness U.S. energy resources and ingenuity to create economic opportunity.
