The Impacts of Restricting Fossil Fuel Energy Production
Based on the models used, a U.S. policy of “keep it in the ground” is projected to generate the following impacts relative to a reference case similar to EIA’s Annual Energy Outlook 2016 Reference Case. The keep it in the ground scenario includes no new oil and natural gas leases on private, State or federal lands, a ban on hydraulic fracturing, no new or expansions of existing coal mines, and no new energy infrastructure to transport oil and natural gas within and outside of North America.
