BCSE Urges Congress to Adopt Critical Clean Energy Policies
September 11, 2008 - With Congress poised to take up comprehensive energy legislation in the coming weeks, the Business Council for Sustainable Energy calls upon Congress to enact long-term policies and incentives, sufficient to allow for aggressive scale-up of both manufacturing and deployment. The Council urges immediate adoption of renewable energy and energy efficiency tax incentives, improved building energy codes and standards, responsible natural gas development and other measures that will drive immediate and sustained deployment signals.
There is an imperative to act now on policies that will increase energy independence and reliability, while fostering U.S. economic growth and a cleaner environment. Adoption of these measures will help lower or mitigate price increases, promote economic development and attain energy independence.
Please see the full letter below as well as the Council’s Clean Energy Technology Deployment Path proposal is attached for your reference, which outlines our industries’ federal energy policy recommendations.
