Energy and Climate

The ACCF is an internationally recognized and highly respected economic authority on energy, climate, and environmental policy issues. The availability of abundant, reliable, and affordable energy is of critical importance to long-term economic growth.  Therefore, policymakers should strive to create an environment that recognizes the need to address climate change objectives while promoting sustained investment, increased efficiency, development of new technologies, and building a predictable and rational regulatory system.
