The U.S. energy system is benefiting from an unprecedented increase in North American supplies of natural gas and petroleum. These changes are strengthening our economy and altering the relationships between our energy choices and health, climate change, and national security. On June 13th, The Hamilton Project at Brookings held an event at Stanford University to explore how to best manage these opportunities while achieving our long-term energy and environmental goals.
Domestic natural gas is both cleaner and more affordable than oil, making it an attractive and practical alternative. In a new Hamilton Project paper, Christopher R. Knittel of MIT proposes a series of steps to promote natural gas in transportation.
