Unpacking Republican Energy and Environmental Policy -- What is It?

September 29, 2022
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Online Online

With President Biden in office and Democrats controlling both chambers of Congress, virtually all of the attention around climate and energy policy has focused on what the Democrats want to pursue -- and what they can accomplish with thin majorities and no Republican support. And, after a long period of fits and starts, Democrats recently passed the Inflation Reduction Act which takes a number of important energy and climate actions. But with the real possibility of Republicans taking control of one or both houses of Congress in November, and with discussions about the 2024 presidential race already beginning, it is important to ask: what exactly IS the Republicans' energy and environmental policy, and what SHOULD it be?

The Center on Global Energy Policy will host a panel of former senior Republican Congressional and Administration officials who will discuss their views.


  • David R. Hill, Senior Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University SIPA


  • Jeffrey A. Rosen, Nonresident Fellow, American Enterprise Institute and former U.S. Deputy Secretary of Transportation
  • Kellie Donnelly, Executive Vice President and General Counsel, Lot Sixteen and former Chief Counsel for the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee
  • James L. Connaughton, Chairperson, Nautilus Data Technologies, Senior Advisor, ClearPath Foundation, and former Chairman of the White House Council on Environmental Quality
