Trump has already turned back years of President Barack Obama’s anti-energy policies, allowing the United States to once again emerge as a global energy leader. The administration has canceled the Clean Energy Plan and, just this week, announced the end of “sue and settle” policies at the Environmental Protection Agency – a practice that allowed extremist groups to set national policy via litigation. These are amazing events that would have been impossible had Hillary Clinton won the 2016 election.

To discuss this remarkable moment in history, The Heartland Institute is gathering the country’s best energy policy experts, as well as key players in the industry, at the J.W. Marriott Hotel in Houston, Texas on Thursday, November 9, 2017, for its America First Energy Conference. It’s an event that will explain what has happened, and more importantly, what comes next.

The program will feature three plenary keynote sessions and 12 panel discussions, which will run concurrently. The panel discussions will address:

  • Energy and Prosperity
  • The Cost of Excessive Regulation
  • The Shale Oil and Gas Revolution
  • Energy and Agriculture
  • The Future of Coal
  • Benefits of Ending the War on Fossil Fuels
  • National Security and Energy Policy
  • Protecting Human Health
  • Protecting the Environment
  • The Latest Climate Science
  • The “Endangerment Finding”
  • Reforming EPA
