This week Nevada Senator Harry Reid headlined a roundtable entitled "The New Revolution: America's Clean Energy Future" hosted by the Third Way. The roundtable discussion brought together a broad range of business, labor and other players in the energy debate. Reid talked about the great opportunity the incoming Congress and Administration have to champion clean energy initiatives by building on the passage of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, which called for increases in vehicle fuel efficiency, alternative fuels production and programs to increase efficiency of the lights, appliances and office buildings.
"At a time when the need for clean, renewable energy is clearer than ever, our ability to turn sun, wind and geothermal into real power that heats and cools our homes and powers our automobiles has never been better," said Reid adding, "greening the grid won't be easy or quick, but with the help of the Obama Administration, utility companies and a willing Congress, we will make it happen."
