This is the September 15, 2016 hearing on "Department of Energy's Role in Advancing the National, Economic, and Energy Security of the United States" held before the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Energy and Power of the Committee on Energy and Commerce. From the opening statement of Committee Chairman Fred Upton: "The Subcommittee on Energy and Power has accomplished a good deal to say yes to energy and update and improve the nation's energy policy, and the American people are beginning to see the economic and energy security benefits. The Department of Energy has been a partner in these efforts, and I welcome back Secretary Moniz to discuss what we have already accomplished and what we hope to do in the years ahead. The most direct benefit of America's newfound energy abundance can be seen at gas stations in Southwest Michigan and across the country, where fuel prices have dipped toward $2 per gallon, even in the midst of serious Middle East turmoil. This would not have been possible without the tremendous growth in domestic oil output along with the emergence of a North American energy market that now plays a prominent role on the world stage. [...] Energy has been one of the most important drivers for economic growth, and with expanded domestic energy production, reduced reliance on foreign imports, increased energy efficiency and productivity, and significant cost reductions, we are arguably more energy secure than ever before." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Ernest Moniz.
