The event will once again be held at the beautiful Sequoia Restaurant located on the Washington Harbour waterfront in Georgetown from 8:00 PM to Midnight. This bi-partisan celebration has become a Washington tradition over the past 24 years as the environmental and clean energy communities gather to welcome a new Administration and make headway towards a more sustainable future. Carol Werner, Executive Director of EESI, is once again serving on the Ball’s Organizing Committee.

All previous Environmental and Clean Energy Inaugural Balls have been recognized by the Presidential Inaugural Committees. This year’s bi-partisan Honorary Committee is comprised of 36 Members of the House and Senate who have distinguished themselves as environmental and clean energy policy leaders.

We are pleased to announce that our Honored Guests will include Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, and Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy John Holdren. Special Guests also include the Honorable Robert Perciasepe and Deputy Assistant to President Obama for Climate Change Heather Zichal.

A number of members of Congress from the bipartisan Honorary Committee have indicated they will attend. A broad international representation from the 21 Ambassadors on the International Honorary Committee will be present as well.

Tickets are $200 per person, which includes an open bar, plenty of food, and a great band for dancing and entertainment!
