From the Manhattan Institute's Center for Energy Policy and the Environment:
New York, NY: Advocates for renewable energy claim that the innovation occurring in that sector will transform the U.S. energy landscape. However, innovation in the oil and gas industry is producing staggering quantities of energy. In 2013, the Energy Information Administration expects U.S. oil production to rise yet again, by 815,000 barrels per day.
On Tuesday, April 2, 2013, the Manhattan Institute’s Center for Energy Policy and the Environment released a new report, New Technology for Old Fuels: Innovation in Oil and Natural Gas Production Assures Future Supplies, authored by MI senior fellow Robert Bryce. Bryce shows that while renewable energy remains the darling of the political and media world, the oil and gas industry is being transformedby cutting-edge drilling technologies that ensure it will remain the dominant players in the global energy market for decades to come.
