Improving America’s energy security requires pursuing both supply-side and demand-side policies – that is, increasing domestic energy production while simultaneously using oil more efficiently and diversifying our fuel base, particularly in the transportation sector.
SAFE engages lawmakers and regulators at the state and national levels to enact effective policies that limit the global oil market’s impact on our economic and national security. In 2006, SAFE formed the Energy Security Leadership Council (ESLC), a nonpartisan group of business and former military leaders in support of long-term policy to reduce U.S. oil dependence. The ESLC went on to play a meaningful role in the passage of the 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA), a landmark bipartisan energy bill that included the first improvements in fuel economy standards in a generation. In additional to fuel efficiency, SAFE advocates for increasing fuel choice through the use of alternative fuels and promoting the safe and responsible use of our domestic petroleum resources.
