Not supporting energy efficiency standards

InfluenceMap Comment:

Evidence suggests does not support stringent energy efficiency standards (NAM, Roadmap for President Elect, Energy, December 2016)

Extract from Source:

New energy production and delivery infrastructure—power plants, refineries, pipelines and processing facilities, transmission lines—is needed to connect new supply sources with new and growing sources of demand. However, permitting paralysis has made it easier to leave old energy infrastructure in place rather than invest the resources and time necessary to develop and install much-needed capital. In addition, manufacturers of advanced, energy-efficient products frequently confront new regulations that exceed the pace of innovation or impose timelines inconsistent with product lifecycles. When regulatory barriers impede adequate energy infrastructure, manufacturers suffer. Reliability is paramount for manufacturers, and delays and regulatory impediments threaten reliability. [...] For product manufacturers, a regulatory system that imposes unnecessary costs or overly aggressive timelines will make it much harder to keep U.S. manufacturing facilities. [...] Leaders should take the following actions to reduce regulatory barriers for energy production, transport and use: [...] Modify the process by which the Department of Energy sets and revises its conservation and energy-efficiency standards to allow for greater stakeholder input and more flexibility.

Not supporting energy efficiency standards

InfluenceMap Comment:

Evidence suggests does not support stringent energy efficiency standards (NAM, Roadmap for President Elect, Environment, December 2016)

Extract from Source:

Policymakers must accept that the United States cannot solve the issue of climate change alone. Leadership is critical in motivating the actions of the rest of the world and positioning the United States as the home to the next generation of energy and environmental technologies. However, policies to lower GHG emissions should not be issued or applied in a way that creates a disproportionate negative impact on other critical societal priorities, such as jobs or economic growth. [...] Leaders should take the following actions to address climate change in a balanced and technology-neutral manner: [...] Work with the automobile industry to perform an honest assessment of the 2021–2025 corporate average fuel economy standards and provide flexibility if needed.

Not supporting energy efficiency standards

InfluenceMap Comment:

Evidence suggests organization does not support the EPA's midterm review ensuring stringent CAFE standards (NAM, Press release, March 2017)

Extract from Source:

Today, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) commended President Donald Trump for announcing that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Transportation (DOT) would reconsider an EPA midnight regulation impacting automobile fuel economy requirements and emissions standards, or the program known as the corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standards. In doing so, the president committed to restoring the midterm review of emissions standards that uses the best available data. This has been a key manufacturing priority outlined in the NAM’s “Competing to Win” agenda, to ensure smart, balanced and effective regulations with input from a range of stakeholders. “Manufacturers are encouraged to see the Trump administration commit to a review of these regulations using the best available data,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “You cannot overstate how important it is to get CAFE standards correct. It is the right thing to do—not only for automobile manufacturers and their manufacturing supply chains but also for consumers and American families.” The EPA and DOT Mid-Term Evaluation for model year 2022–2025 vehicles was always intended to be a technologically focused, data-driven and stakeholder-involved process. However, the previous administration issued a midnight regulation 14 months before the determination was supposed to be made, skipping all federal oversight by the Office of Management and Budget and excluding the DOT.
