Council Outlines Path for U.S. Leadership to a New, Clean Energy Economy
January 29, 2009 - The Business Council for Sustainable Energy released to the Obama Administration and Congress today its blueprint on key legislative actions needed to transform the U.S. economy into a clean energy-based and thriving economy. The paper, “Moving the Nation Towards a Clean Energy Economy," outlines critical policies that will help the United States emerge as a global leader in the new, green economy and put millions of people to work.
In its plan, the Council recognizes that U.S. policymakers currently face multiple policy challenges: an economy in turmoil, the threat of global climate change and an increased demand for electricity in the face of rising fuel prices and declining investments in new energy infrastructure. A suite of policy options are presented in the Council’s blueprint to lead the U.S. to economic recovery through deployment of clean energy technologies.
