Energy Rush: Shale Production and U.S. National Security

By Elizabeth Rosenberg

Senior Fellow Elizabeth Rosenberg calls for policymakers and military leaders to reassess U.S. strategy to “safeguard the physical oil trade, new criteria for the use of strategic reserves, new potential energy export opportunities and new possibilities for energy-focused trade arrangements.” The author states that civilian and military leaders must adapt policies and recast strategic relationships and military commitments to better-fit complex and volatile global energy markets.

On February 6, CNAS held an event featuring remarks on energy and national security by former National Security Advisor Thomas E. Donilon and the rollout of Energy Rush.
