On May 27, 2010, the Sustainable Energy Coalition, in cooperation with Members of the U.S. House and Senate Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Caucuses and in partnership with the House High Performance Building Caucus, House Algae Energy Caucus, House Hydropower Caucus, and House Sustainable Energy & Environment Coalition, hosted the 13th annual Congressional Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency EXPO + Forum. The EXPO brought together 50 businesses, sustainable energy industry trade associations, government agencies, and energy policy research organizations to showcase the status and near-term potential of the cross-section of renewable energy (biomass, geothermal, solar, water, wind), fuel cells, hydrogen, energy storage, smart-grid, and energy efficiency technologies (e.g., lighting, appliances, vehicles, buildings, combined heat and power).
A late-morning news conference featured Members of the U.S. Congress and Executive Branch spokespersons while morning and afternoon speakers discussed the role sustainable energy technologies can play in stimulating economic growth and creating clean energy jobs, as well as addressing the challenges of higher energy costs, increased reliance on energy imports, and the potential threat posed by rising levels of greenhouse gas emissions.
This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP required.
