Watch Live Streaming of National Clean Energy Summit Tuesday


Despite getting hung up in Washington due to Hurricane Irene, we finally made it to Las Vegas for the fourth National Clean Energy Summit, a gathering of business and policy leaders to talk about the future of renewable energy, efficiency, transportation, and the intelligent grid.

We’ve got a great line-up of speakers tomorrow: Vice President Joe Biden; Energy Secretary Steven Chu; Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus; the Governors of California, Nevada and Washington; Federal Energy Regulatory Chairman John Wellinghoff; Nevada Senator Harry Reid; Center for American Progress President John Podesta, and many more.

Be sure to check out the live streaming of the event on Tuesday from 9 am to 5 pm. We’ll have roundtable discussions, speeches, and Q&A on all things clean energy.

This fall is a critical time for the future of renewable energy. As Congress looks to make deep cuts in spending on energy, we’ll be looking at how that will shape the sector over the coming years. Tune in to hear from top decision makers on how the policy and business environment may unfold.

    With events coming at an every increasing pace, Media will cover what it does so well, showing and reshowing the aftermath of Irene.

    As for something that points to the future, well, they just don’t know how to cover that. For that, I would like to apply the logic of Jay Rosen at Pressthink, speaking in Melbourne on “Why Political Coverage is Broken”.

    As for our Congress, there is always hope when on Congressman can release a book entitled Clean Energy Nation.

    Just started to read it now.

    I’m curious to see what the current hand-waving memes are going to be used to explain how we maintain our current economic “growth” model while we face drastically reduced inputs of petroleum energy.

    Where exactly are the multiple doublings of renewable energy capacity going to come from in an economically stagnant and politically gridlocked U.S.? How do we get people out of their SUVs and into less energy hungry transportation?

    We can’t even get basic ideas across such as painting your roof white if you have to run air conditioning. We put up with power blackouts first.

    We put up with rolling blackouts because we can blame someone else. The rest we would have to assume the guilt for ourselves.
