 ENERGY 
 
The goal of the Energy Policy Center is to promote a free market in energy production, where no protections, subsidies, or regulations result in energy winners and losers. We advocate that government remain neutral and level the playing field. That way consumers can reap the benefits of a healthy energy market - competition, lower prices, and more options.
