It is NOIA’s position that U.S. climate policy, whether through new or amended laws or regulations, should:
Support the development and availability of all forms of abundant, reliable, and affordable domestic energy supplies for Americans, while continuously driving down emissions.
Result in meaningful GHG emissions reductions across all sectors of the U.S. economy.
Balance environmental, social, economic, and energy needs.
Provide for transparency related to the benefits and costs for society.
Leverage the power of markets to drive economy wide emission reductions at lowest possible societal costs. This may include the utilization of market-based approaches such as a price on carbon that can provide predictability and economic efficiencies in investments and outcomes.
Support continued funding for federal research, development, and demonstration for innovation and the advancement of emissions mitigation technologies, such as carbon capture, use, and storage, energy efficiency, hydrogen, and renewable energy.
Seek to eliminate redundant or conflicting policies.
Be compatible with global agreements and efforts to address the issue on a global scale.
The National Ocean Industries Association represents and advances a dynamic and growing offshore energy industry, providing solutions that support communities and protect our workers, the public and our environment.
