ENERGY INDEPENDENCE
When do you think the United States could attain energy independence?
KPMG's outlook: It is difficult to fathom the far-reaching economic and geopolitical implications of the United States eliminating dependency on foreign energy sources and achieving energy independence, while complete independence is unlikely to ever be achieved, U.S. energy security is definitely within reach. U.S. natural gas is a low-cost alternative to other energy sources that is quickly becoming an essential part of the global energy mix. Further, executives expect greater use of renewable energy (23 percent) and alternative fuels such as natural gas, electricity, and biodiesel for transportation (20 percent) to play a role in accelerating U.S. independence, although the development of cross-border pipelines and transmission lines (37 percent) would have the biggest effect.
