Unclear position on renewable energy legislation

InfluenceMap Comment:

Evidence suggests some limited support for renewable energy sources , does not make clear position on renewable energy legislation (NAM President Jay Timmons, Industry Week, February 2014)

Extract from Source:

Timmons said Obama could “score a major victory for economic growth” by approving the Keystone XL pipeline, which has been under review for five years. He also called for the country to embrace an “all-of-the-above” energy strategy that would include nuclear and renewable energy sources, and pursue innovations that foster sustainability.

Opposing renewable energy legislation

InfluenceMap Comment:

Opposing Clean Power Plan and, consequentially, renewable energy targets (NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons, EHS Today, August 2015)

Extract from Source:

“This regulation will be exceptionally difficult for manufacturers to meet and will increase energy prices and threaten electric reliability. Manufacturers are committed to being responsible stewards of our environment, leading the way in that effort, and we are disappointed the Obama Administration has chosen to pursue this path,” said National Association of Manufacturers President and CEO Jay Timmons.“Manufacturers are already building more efficient power plants, factories, cars and appliances, all of which are leading to lower emissions. We need policies that foster continued innovation, encourage new investments and allow manufacturers to remain competitive – not ones that punish and penalize. This regulation and the president’s Climate Regulatory Action Plan are not the answer. We will keep all options on the table, including litigation, to protect manufacturers’ ability to compete in the global marketplace.”
