Is Subsidizing Commercial Energy Projects the Best Way for America to Achieve its Energy Goals?

Recorded on March 24, 2009

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

The ethanol mandate taught us that energy subsidies for commercial energy projects can lead to unintended consequences and ultimately be counterproductive.  Yet Washington's attempts to address America's energy questions continue to rely heavily on preferences, mandates, and subsidies for energy commercialization.  This is causing energy experts from across the political spectrum to begin questioning the role of subsidies in energy policy.  Is this an area where liberals and conservatives might agree?

Join us for a panel with four politically diverse energy experts who will discuss these questions and others as they investigate where agreement exists on the role of energy subsidies, mandates, and preferences in commercializing energy in the United States.
