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.

The Government Purchasing Project is a project of the Center for Responsive Law.
