Energy Policy

U.S. and global energy markets have much to analyse ahead of the election. Biden supports environmental regulation and climate change diplomacy. Trump seeks to block those policies, supporting fossil fuels for economic growth and jobs. The trajectory of global energy prices depend in part on U.S. energy diplomacy with OPEC and the Saudis, Iran and Venezuela. U.S. relations with China and Russia also intersect with oil and gas production and trade. Regulation of the U.S. shale industry, support for renewables from Biden’s green investment plans and auto emission standards all depend on who wins.
