Over the past four years, the United States has reclaimed the title as the world’s leading investor in clean energy technologies and we are on track to double renewable energy generation. Join Secretary Chu for a live chat on the benefits of transitioning to a clean energy economy Friday, April 20, 2012 at 10:45 am ET at Energy.gov/LiveChat.
Over the past four years, the United States has reclaimed the title as the world’s leading investor in clean energy technologies and we are on track to double renewable energy generation. By investing in wind, solar, and geothermal sources, we are winning the race against countries such as China, India, and Germany.
What does this have to do with you?
Besides the simple fact that investing in these technologies – or moving into a clean energy economy – supports jobs across the country, makes our country more energy independent and helps to protect our environment. These technologies work to decrease environmental footprints and minimize pollution – something we at Energy take pride in, especially when celebrating Earth Day.
That’s why Secretary Chu will be taking your questions tomorrow, Friday, at 10:45 am ET regarding the Energy Department’s work to transition to a clean energy economy. He’ll especially focus on the environmental benefits of this work and how it’s helping Americans all over the country.
