Welcome to Energy Now
Welcome to energyNOW.com, a new way of looking at energy: How America gets it, uses it, and how it affects the world around us.
Not only do we bring you the most important stories about energy and the environment, but we take fresh and critical look at them from the perspective that only our team of veteran journalists can provide.
We'll explore the key questions in America's energy discussion:

- How can we win the race to develop and implement clean-energy technology?
- Can the energy industry create jobs as the American economy fights its way out of the worst recession in decades?
- What should the nation and its citizens do about climate change?
- How can America use energy resources more efficiently?
