This week the conversation at RN is converging around building the low-carbon economy. Here's a group doing a great job shaping that conversation around shared contribution from business and government. Look for them to join us soon on a radio segment. In the meantime take a closer look at their work and the data on how big this financial transition is for each of us, and note the countries leading the way:
AEE is an organization of businesses working to make energy secure, clean, and affordable
ADVANCED ENERGY ECONOMY (AEE) is a national association of business leaders who are making the global energy system more secure, clean, and affordable. Advanced energy encompasses a broad range of products and services that constitute the best available technologies for meeting energy needs today and tomorrow. Among these are energy efficiency, demand response, energy storage, natural gas electric generation, solar, wind, hydro, nuclear, electric vehicles, biofuels and smart grid. It's all the innovations that make the energy we use more secure, clean, and affordable.
AEE's vision is of a prosperous world that runs on secure, clean, affordable energy.
Our mission is transforming public policy to enable rapid growth of advanced energy companies.
AEE engages in policy advocacy at the federal, state, and regulatory levels; CEO-to-CEO convenings to identify and address cross-industry issues; and targeted outreach to key stakeholder groups and policymakers.
With global energy consumption projected to rise nearly 40 percent by 2030, future prosperity depends on meeting growing demand with energy that is secure, clean and affordable - that is, advanced energy. Advanced energy solutions create value for customers and for the economy. It is this value that contributes to long-term growth for the economy overall, and to growth of advanced energy companies specifically. Just as the Internet economy transformed society in unexpected ways, the advanced energy economy has the potential to create dramatic new opportunities for economic growth in the U.S. and around the world
