Biden’s LNG ‘pause’ threatens Pennsylvania’s natural gas industry

"No one is against protecting the environment. In fact, that is one of the biggest benefits of natural gas — it is perhaps the cleanest fossil fuel on the market today. It is also abundant and affordable. That abundance is what propelled the United States to become the global leader in LNG exports in 2023, surpassing longtime leaders Qatar and Australia."

Homegrown Energy Means Lower Prices and Lower Emissions

"Republican lawmakers have been vocal about the need for permitting reform, and while there are ongoing conversations with their Democrat counterparts, the looming November election has seemingly put these discussions on hold.

Grid technology could save billions but for a policy vacuum

"FERC’s proposed transmission planning rule requires regional plans to study Dynamic Line Ratings and Advanced Power Flow Control. This would be a leap forward for America’s grid, but FERC can’t stop there. Further, specific requirements will be needed, and incentive reform will drive utilities toward an optimized transmission grid. As more generation and storage plug in at the distribution level, we’ll also have to apply these tools on the lower voltage grid. This is another reason utilities must put GETs in their toolboxes today."
