The Obama administration has released a Blueprint for a Secure Energy Future imbibing the spirit of the comprehensive national energy policy envisaged by it since its inception. The blueprint aims at developing America’s energy supplies by exploiting its natural resources in order to produce more energy at home and to become a leader in the global energy economy.
Besides, it focuses on providing consumers with choices to reduce costs and save energy. It includes encouraging the customers to buy more fuel-efficient vehicles and to use alternative means of transportation.
Further, the blueprint advocates for a clean energy future, which is not a distant dream considering America’s Clean Energy Potential. The studies indicate that the nation will be able to generate 80 percent of electricity from clean energy sources by 2035.
The overdependence on the non-renewable energy sources has been triggering discussions on environment security in the US for long. Every President since Richard Nixon has emphasized the point and called for America’s independence from oil.
Even though the Obama administration disappointed them first when it continued importing 11 million barrels a day, the new blueprint appears to be a positive nod.
It pledges to reduce the oil imports to one-third by the year 2035 and thus ensuring America a ‘Secure Energy Future’. The advancements in offshore oil exploration and hike in the production of oil from the native resources compared to last year indicate the energy status of the state heading towards sufficiency.
In a scene, when the demand and price of the oil is peaking in countries like China and India, the bold step taken by America is worthy to be emulated. You may want to follow this link to see the full report. Also, we have for you here a video with more details.
