The USGS Energy Resources Program provides impartial, scientifically robust information to advance the understanding of geologically based energy resources, to contribute to plans for a secure energy future, and to facilitate evaluation and responsible use of resources. The Energy Resources Program has a clearly defined role, and its research portfolio is responsive to national priorities established through legislative directives, internal strategic planning, important and unanticipated global events, customer surveys and needs, and the guiding principles of objective and impartial science.

  • Energy Policy Act of 2005:  is one example of the responsiveness of the USGS Energy Resources Program to legislative directives. This Act (below) contained new responsibilities for many Federal agencies, including the USGS.  
  • Congressional Testimony:  Managers and scientists of the Energy Resources Program occasionally provide testimony to committees and subcommittees of Congress. Below are some of the energy-related written testimony presented over the past several years.
