Why the Russia crisis matters for U.S. energy

Carlos Anchondo and Mike Lee report for E&E News on why the Russia crisis matters for U.S. energy.

The C3 Take
  • The potential Russian invasion of Ukraine may have rippling impacts on America’s energy market.
  • The Biden administration has been in talks with domestic suppliers and other allies to provide natural gas to Europe to ease the continent’s energy dependence on Russia.
  • Doing so could would likely lead to increased American production of fossil fuels which could have positive impacts on our economy and energy prices.
  • While these steps may temporarily ease tensions in Europe, the EU should look for more sustainable long-term options to secure energy.

“But the administration may have little direct influence since the market for natural gas responds mostly to prices, observers say. There are long-term policy changes by the U.S. and its allies,however, that could reduce Russia’s influence over Europe, which is already grappling with a severe energy crisis, they say.”
