Sierra Club Challenges DOE Choice of Consultants for Natural Gas Export Study
DOE hired NERA Economic Consulting to whether large increases in natural gas exploitation required to support exporting natural gas is in the country’s interest. NERA is a consulting firm that has done extensive consulting for the oil and gas industry and has testified against public health safeguards and the DOE’s own clean energy programs. The Sierra Club filed a FOE Act Request to determine how NERA was selected and how their economic model generates its conclusions. You can see the press release here.
