As Senators review and consider Clean Energy legislation on Capitol Hill, why not educate yourself about the issue by attending Clean Energy Week in Washington, D.C., Feb. 1-5?
Clean Energy Week will bring citizens to the nation’s capital for five days of events aimed at encouraging Congress and the Obama administration to take action on climate change, renewable energy and energy efficiency.
The Wilderness Society teamed up with a coalition of more than 50 businesses, trade associations, community organizations, and environmental and conservation groups to sponsor the event.
“We need to continue to remind our lawmakers that clean energy remains a top priority for the American people and is an essential component of job creation and economic growth,” said Chase Huntley, Wilderness Society clean energy policy advisor.
The week’s events are largely open to the public and we encourage interested individuals to attend.
The week will include educational briefings on the state of clean energy and several conferences that businesses can attend to learn about using renewable energy sources. On Thursday, Feb. 5, Clean Technology & Sustainable Industries Organization is hosting a Clean Energy Breakfast Roundtable with a special guest Hill speaker. For those interested in contributing to the relief effort in Haiti, the Latin American and Caribbean Council on Renewable Energy is hosting a conference on Opportunities and Challenges for Renewable Energy on Feb. 5.
