Modernize Our Nation's Energy Policy

The electrical construction industry specifies, installs and services products related to energy production and efficiency. Deployment of energy efficiency technology and infrastructure has been slow due to marketplace, government and economic barriers. NECA supports a comprehensive energy policy that increases all avenues of domestic production including domestic oil and natural gas exploration as well as clean and renewable energy sources.

  • Invest in Transmission Line Infrastructure and Smart Grid Technology 
  • Incentivize Clean and Renewable Energy Sources 
  • Streamline the Approval Process for Pipeline Infrastructure 
  • Increase the Deployment of Combined Heat and Power and Waste Heat to Power 
  • Promote Development of Energy Storage Technologies

Also during Energy week, the Senate reintroduced a NECA-supported energy bill, S. 1460, The Energy and Natural Resources Act of 2017 (ENRA). The legislation was reintroduced by Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), chairman of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, and Maria Cantwell (D-WA), the committee’s ranking member. The focus on energy by the administration is a great step forward. NECA looks forward to continuing to work with the administration and Members of Congress to develop a new Comprehensive Energy Policy.
