WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States must diversify its global oil supplies, expand a world network of strategic petroleum reserves and raise fuel efficiency standards to ensure its energy security, a panel of experts will recommend on Wednesday.

These are some of the findings from the National Commission on Energy Policy, a bipartisan group of energy experts, company executives and government officials, that will be released in Washington to attack major long-term U.S. energy challenges.

The recommendations could be used by U.S. lawmakers in the new Congress next year who will try to approve a bill to overhaul U.S. energy policy.
