As a candidate for president in 2016, Donald Trump unveiled his America First Energy Plan—a bold proposal to transform the United States beyond mere energy independence. His goal was to make America a global energy powerhouse again.

Trump has already turned back years of Obama’s anti-energy policies, allowing the United States to once again emerge as a global energy leader. This is an amazing turn of events, one that would have been impossible had Hillary Clinton won the 2016 election.

To discuss this remarkable moment in history, The Heartland Institute is gathering the country’s best energy policy experts, as well as key players in the industry, at the J.W. Marriott Hotel in Houston, Texas on Thursday, November 9, 2017, for its America First Energy Conference. It’s an event that will explain what has happened, and more importantly, what comes next.

Heartland’s America First Energy Conference will feature more than two dozen speakers, who will present on eight panels and three plenary sessions. We expect hundreds of people to attend and aim to attract state legislators, state think tank leaders, private sector government relations and policy analysts, and many of Heartland’s thousands of supporters.

Myron Ebell will be joining the conference to discuss the Environmental Protection Agency’s “endangerment finding” on greenhouse gases.
