of the United States. Excerpt: The energy policy of the United
States is determined by federal, state and local public entities in
the United States, which address issues of energy production,
distribution, and consumption, such as building codes and gas
mileage standards. Energy policy may include legislation,
international treaties, subsidies and incentives to investment,
guidelines for energy conservation, taxation and other public
policy techniques. Several mandates have been proposed over the
years, such as gasoline will never exceed $1.00/gallon (Nixon), and
the United States will never again import as much oil as it did in
1977 (Carter), but no comprehensive long-term energy policy has
been proposed, although there has been concern over this failure.
Three Energy Policy Acts have been passed, in 1992, 2005, and 2007,
which include many provisions for conservation, such as the Energy
Star program, and energy development, with grants and tax
incentives for both renewable energy and non-renewable energy.
State-specific energy-efficiency incentive programs also play a
significant role in the overall energy policy of the United States.
The United States had resisted endorsing the Kyoto Protocol,
preferring to let the market drive CO2 reductions to mitigate
global warming, which will require CO2 emission taxation. The
administration of Barack Obama has proposed an aggressive energy
policy reform, including the need for a reduction of CO2 emissions,
with a cap and trade program, which could help encourage more clean
