ACORE Chairman and Former DOE Officials Submit Letter In Support of Federal Clean Energy Funding

EERE letter

Dan Reicher, Executive Director of the Steyer-Taylor Center for Energy Policy and Finance at Stanford University and ACORE Chairman of Board of Directors, along with the entire group of Assistant Secretaries of Energy who led the DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) between 1989 and 2017, today submitted a letter to Secretary of Energy Rick Perry and members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate. The letters outlined the group’s serious concerns around the administration’s recent proposal to cut the EERE budget by 69 percent from FY2017 enacted levels.

In submitting their concern, the group notes that “the U.S. Department of Energy is the single largest funder of clean energy innovation in the United States, and our nation will be hindered in the global energy market without a strategic and well-funded DOE research portfolio, including basic science, energy efficiency, renewable energy, nuclear energy, fossil energy, and electricity reliability.”
