In this edition of Insight Weekly, we take another look at how this month’s midterm elections will impact energy policies in the U.S. At the federal level, the outcome of Congressional contests will help to shape likely reforms of permitting legislation for energy infrastructure projects. Gubernatorial races and elections for state utility commissions will also greatly influence local energy agendas and the ongoing transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources.
The energy crisis could accelerate decarbonization efforts, resulting in faster deployment of clean power around the globe. The International Energy Agency highlighted Russia's invasion of Ukraine as the main cause of the diminishing use of gas, potentially bringing an "end to the golden age of gas."
U.S. banks reported further declines in deposits during the third quarter of the year.
