Energy Efficiency and Renewables Advisory Committee


Yesterday, U.S. Secretary of Energy Steve Chu welcomed the 20 members of the new Energy Efficiency and Renewables Advisory Committee (ERAC) to DOE headquarters. The committee was formed in order to review and provide input on the direction of DOE’s clean energy portfolio. Members include academics, local government officials (including Philadelphia’s Mayor, Michael Nutter), venture capitalists, project developers, and energy utilities.

According to yesterday’s press release by DOE, the group will focus on long-term strategies for addressing the challenges facing “clean energy deployment and market acceptance”.  Working groups and subcommittees within ERAC will meet frequently, with the full committee meeting at least twice per year in order to prepare and submit their recommendations to DOE. Advisory Committee meetings will be open to the public.
