US energy policy Tag

You’re a busy energy manager - goodness knows you haven't got any time to follow the maddening circus that is the US Presidential Election, never mind sort through the raging dumpster fire to understand each candidate’s stance on energy issues. (RIP Ken Bone - we barely knew ye.) So, with less than one week remaining until Election Day, we did it for you! No matter where in the world you are managing energy, the outcome of this historic event will likely affect energy policy and markets globally - especially where renewables are concerned. That's partly because when it comes to energy issues, the candidates and their respective parties couldn't be more opposed. While Donald Trump is pushing hard for fossil fuels, Clinton is advocating for clean power, on which her energy platform is almost entirely based. Before we take a look at each candidate’s views and energy proposals, let's examine the official platform of their respective parties.

I want you to put aside all the ludicrous, mind-blowing and outrageous insanity that is US election for just a moment to focus on something very, very important.

For reasons unknown, the Internet has fallen in love with this man. And this man is ALL ABOUT energy policy. That's right: bespectacled, sweater-clad Ken Bone, transfigured overnight into the Internet's latest and legendary meme, asked the second-last and perhaps most hard-hitting question of the night: ...and it was about energy policy. ken bone 2 - energy policy
