After the State of the Union address this week, Secretary Steven Chu will host an online town hall to discuss President Obama's clean energy agenda.
We hope you'll join us this Wednesday, January 26 at 12:45pm EST, at energy.gov/livechat.
Two weeks ago, Secretary Chu asked what you most hoped to see the Department discussing. You responded with more topics than I have room to list, ranging from electric bicycles and LED lighting, to nuclear power, high-speed rail and energy independence.
And so we're happy to say that Wednesday's town hall won't just be a single one-hour event, but will be kicking off a new year-long series called Energy Matters, in which experts from the Department will talk about the issues you've asked to hear more about, and answer your questions live online.
If you have questions for the Secretary ahead of Wednesday's event, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org, post them on DOE's Facebook page, or tweet @energy with the hashtag #chu. You'll also be able to ask additional questions live during the event.
Building our country's energy future is going to require research, innovation, and working together. We're excited to host these Energy Matters online town halls to keep the conversation flowing between the Secretary, small business owners, energy experts, homeowners and interested citizens around the country.
I'll see you online at Energy.gov/livechat on Wednesday at 12:45pm EST.
