Where does energy come from—and why does it matter?

It may seem like it, but the energy we depend on every day doesn’t just appear. It takes having a complex energy infrastructure in place to make sure this energy is available whenever—and wherever— we need it. Take a look:


Energy infrastructure includes pipelines, roads, rail, trucks and ships that carry our oil and natural gas. Without it, usable energy simply wouldn’t exist. That’s why it’s so important to keep improving our energy infrastructure. It creates jobs, lessens the chance of supply disruptions and strengthens our energy security.

The key to a secure energy future is a strong
and reliable infrastructure.

By updating and building new U.S. energy infrastructure, we’ll continue to put millions of Americans to work and create new, more innovative energy solutions; not just for ourselves, but for future generations.
