It is no secret that today's price of energy does
not reflect its enormous environmental and societal costs from air pollution
to national security issues. As the largest consumer of energy in the
country, the federal government must invest in innovative technologies
that use energy efficiently and explore alternative energy sources, such
as solar energy.
Energy Ideas was a quarterly newsletter that
was published for several years. Back issues are still available.
Energy Ideas discusses the use of energy-efficient and renewable
energy technologies by and for the public sector. It describes successful
projects in federal, state and local agencies nationwide, identifies contact
persons for each project and provides financing and policy information.
The newsletter also lists recent and relevant reports, books and guides
for initiating projects and other resources.
