The National Commission on Energy Policy is a bipartisan group of 20 of the nation’s leading energy experts – representing the highest ranks of industry, government, academia, labor, consumer and environmental protection. The Commission seeks to identify and address the political and analytical barriers that have thwarted previous efforts at energy policy reform and conduct extensive outreach to government, business, NGO and other communities. By taking a bipartisan approach, and seeking to connect the expertise and objectivity of scientific research with political realities, the Commission seeks both to build on and distinguish itself from past energy policy efforts.
