Striking a Balance:
A Forum on Energy and the Environment

July 25, 2016
Philadelphia

In the past few years, a boom in natural gas and oil production, the pace of innovation in harnessing renewables and greater emphasis on energy efficiency have led the United States even closer to its goal of energy independence.

What strategies and policies should the next President of the United States adopt to consolidate these gains in energy production? Is there an ideal mix of conventional and renewable energy sources that will help grow the economy while protecting the environment?

The Atlantic's cocktail caucus during the Democratic convention explored the nation's energy and environment landscape.
