He specializes in strategy, geopolitics, energy security, energy technologies and natural resources. Newsweek magazine called him a “tireless and independent advocate of energy security.” The business magazine Poder called him “one of the most recognizable figures in modern energy and security issues,” and Esquire magazine included him in its 2007 list of America’s Best and Brightest.

He is co-author of Energy Security Challenges for the 21st Century (2009) and Turning Oil into Salt: Energy Independence Through Fuel Choice (2009). He appears frequently in the media and has consulted with various think tanks and news organizations worldwide. Luft has testified before committees of the U.S. Congress, including Senate Foreign Relations, House International Relations, House Science and the U.S.–China Economic and Security Review Commission. He is a founding member of the Institute for Renewable Energy Policy, The International Lithium Alliance, OurEnergyPolicy.org and Citizens for Energy Freedom.
