How will November’s election direct the U.S. energy future?

Tisha Schuller sits down with Marty Durbin, President of the Global Energy Institute at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and Elizabeth Gore, Senior Vice President of Political Affairs at the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), to discuss how energy companies can minimize risk heading into the 2020 presidential election.

In today’s episode, we explore answers to the following political questions:

  • What are the macro trends to watch?
  • What are the range of possible outcomes?
  • Is there an outcome or possibility that could lead to oil and gas support?

Today’s episode was previously recorded as an invitation-only webinar co-hosted by Adamantine Energy and the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF). Moderated by Tisha Schuller of Adamantine Energy, the panel also includes welcoming remarks from Ben Ratner of EDF.
