Peter Behr

Wouldn’t increased LNG exports with new terminals eventually reduce western Europe’s dependence on Russian gas and thus the political leverage of its energy resources. Is there a policy tradeoff between climate and security policy in this case?

Peter Behr
To all panelists: How do you see the outlook for passage of the energy provisions in the BBB legislation? Does the Ukraine crisis make enactment more likely, less likely, or is that unclear?
Peter Behr
How important are “firm” zero carbon power resources to achieving a zero carbon grid by 2035? Are they essential? Should some options be excluded now? Will they be available when needed without the incentives in the BBB legislation?
