A detailed consensus strategy was recently released with recommendations for major long-term challenges to the formulation of a national energy policy.

Ending the Energy Stalemate: A Bipartisan Strategy to Meet America's Energy Challenges is the result of efforts by a commission comprised of energy experts from industry, government, labor, academia and environmental and consumer organizations and is supported by more than 30 original studies. The report offers policy recommendations in areas such as oil security, climate change, natural gas supply and nuclear energy viability.

"[We] reached consensus on effective policies because of a willingness to take on cherished myths from both right and left," said John W. Rowe, commission co-chair and chairman and CEO of Exelon Corp. "We believe that this package of recommendations can be of value to Congress and the Administration in energy legislation next year and beyond."

"The intent is to achieve a gradual but decisive shift in national energy policy," said William K. Reilly, former EPA Administrator and commission co-chair.
