For Immediate Release – June 16, 2015
Washington, D.C. – The American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) stands in strong support of the announcement by President Obama and his Administration of more than $4 billion in private sector investment in clean energy and a new Clean Energy Impact Investment Center at the Department of Energy.
“The United States can – and must – be a leader in the global transition to clean energy sources, and the President’s announcement today exemplifies the kind of government and private sector action that will help keep American companies competitive in the energy sector,” said Dan Reicher, interim President & CEO of ACORE and Executive Director of the Steyer-Taylor Center for Energy Policy & Finance at Stanford University. “ACORE convenes some of the largest and most influential players in the clean energy industry, and every one of our members can benefit from more emphasis on clean tech investment and R&D. This announcement sends a strong signal about the future of renewable energy in the U.S."
