The 2020 Institute will work to further the economic and scientific potential of the United States toward the increasingly imperative policy objective of energy self-sufficiency by the year 2020. In accordance with this effort, the institute will contribute to a dialogue in America by engaging the technological, economic, and public interests necessary to affect this important change. The institute will insist that all options capable of alleviating America’s dependence on foreign sources of energy are explored. Such all-inclusive thinking will be used to plan and implement a feasible, economical, and sustainable energy policy capable of providing for all current and future demands. All are welcome to join, support, or use the 2020 Institute to expand the awareness and support of Americans for energy self-sufficiency.
