The evolution process and the main trends of modern energy policy in the USA


Recent developments of the American fuel and energy industrial complex has made important qualitative changes that provide comprehensive energy conservation, a consistent increase in overall energy efficiency, multifaceted technological developments along with targeted indirect federal subsidies to subsidize domestic producers of traditional types of mineral fuel raw materials and renewable sources. At the same time, the policy of modernizing the infrastructure and introducing innovative solutions for the growth of energy savings and the sequential accelerated transition to the new modes of technological structures in economic production remains, while continuing to rely on the previous energy base. The preceding Clean Power Plan of Barack Obama-era is giving way to the Republican America First Energy Plan but President Trump focuses solely on the two priorities: producing low-cost energy and creating new American jobs. His decision to dismantle environmental regulations, reduce climate funding, and exit the Paris Climate Agreement may entail negative consequences in combating climate change.
