The Madison Policy Forum has embarked upon a review of US and global energy. The purpose of the study is to provide unbiased data about the trends in the principle energy sectors, their respective subsidies and CO2 emissions. It reviews key countries including the US, EU, Germany, China and India and various states within the US with divergent energy plans. Our intent is to provide clear and contextualized data to inform energy policy and gain public support. Michael Sheehan is the principle author of the energy report.
