US Energy Independent by 2040? Updated paper by David Greene in Energy Policy
Dr. David Greene, a Baker Fellow in Energy and Environment, has an updated paper published online by Energy Policy. This paper updates a 2013 Baker Center White Paper (1.13) and focuses on the future costs to the US of oil dependence, including potential independence by 2040. Reducing energy dependence on foreign oil is important for US energy policy and can mitigate green house gas emissions.
