Report on Policy Choices and Options: Commission on Energy and the Environment

Service: Policy analysis

Research Areas: Economic Development, Land Use & Environment

This report from the Commission on Energy and the Environment, part of the project, Policy Choices for Indiana’s Future, was released February 17, 2012. The goal of Policy Choices is to start the discussion among government, nonprofit, and private sector leaders about these topics now—to provide policy options for action.
Three commissions began work in January 2010 conducting research and developing options for effective public policy – Commission on Education and Workforce Development, Commission on Energy and the Environment, Commission on State and Local Tax Policy.
This commission chose to identify policy options and to outline their potential positive and negative consequences, rather than make specific recommendations. Many of the policy options presented in the report focus on emerging technologies that have not yet become commercially available. The options fall under three areas:
·         Advanced Biofuels
·         Electric Vehicles and Battery Technology
·         Energy Efficiency
·         Carbon Capture and Storage
