It was like she was performing a winning monologue in a play—impassioned, dynamic, loud and impossible to tune out.

It’s no secret that the renewable energy industry is on fire. U.S. solar generation is set to double for the 7th straight year; the country has started pumping out cellulosic ethanol, a fuel made from non-food farm waste; there are 14 offshore wind projects nearing development; clean energy jobs doubled this quarter. So there’s no doubt that this renewable energy boom is yielding economic, environmental, and national security benefits across the U.S. But there’s also no doubt that the West is leading the way.

The meeting featured the Assistant Secretary for Energy with the U.S. Army, Katherine Hammack, and the Assistant Secretary for Energy with the U.S. Navy (and former ACORE CEO!), Dennis McGinn.
