When the 114th Congress assembled for the first time in January, a bill approving Keystone XL was first on the agenda.

By passing that bill with numerous amendments stuffed in, the Republican-controlled House and Senate gave Americans some hints about the energy issues it would address in 2015. Those include efficiency standards, tax reform, natural gas exports and EPA regulations.

This week, The Energy Gang is on break. In place of our normal show, we present a roundtable discussion between GTM Senior Editor Stephen Lacey, Huffington Post Energy Editor Kate Sheppard and E&E TV Managing Editor Monica Trauzzi on what we can expect from Congress this year.

This podcast is sponsored by Kaco New Energy, a leading manufacturer of solar PV inverters for every size and module type.

The Energy Gang is produced by Greentechmedia.com. The show features weekly discussions between energy futurist Jigar Shah, energy policy expert Katherine Hamilton and Greentech Media Editor Stephen Lacey.
