A new report from Wilson Center Public Policy Scholar Nik Nanos, Entering the Energy & Environment Policy Frontier, explores the changing energy landscape in the United States and Canada and identifies energy policy risks and opportunities.

Using original public opinion research, in-depth interviews with experts and advocacy groups, and analysis of secondary data, Nanos suggests that the government should not pick energy winners and losers, but encourage competition among energy sources. Furthermore, Nanos finds that decentralized sub-national environmental policy making, gridlock in Congress, and potential uncertainty in recoverable energy resources should result in greater caution in favoring one policy over another.
