RTE Featured on Capitol Hill at the Sustainable Energy Expo

U.S. House of Representatives

Through the invitation of Bill Holmberg at ACORE, RTE was featured at the ACORE booth of the Sustainable Energy Expo of the Sustainable Energy Coalition.  ACORE was one of 30 exhibits at the event.
On July 31, the Sustainable Energy Coalition – in cooperation with Members of the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Caucuses – hosted the 11th annual Congressional Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency EXPO + Forum.
This year’s EXPO brought together more than three dozen businesses, sustainable energy industry trade associations, government agencies, and energy policy research organizations to showcase the status and near-term potential of the cross-section of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. A morning news conference featured Members of the U.S. Congress while afternoon speakers discussed the role sustainable energy technologies can play in meeting America’s energy needs.
As Congress, the Administration, the business community, environmental advocates, and American voters search for options to address ever-higher energy prices, increased reliance on energy imports, and the potential threat posed by rising levels of greenhouse gas emissions, the EXPO helped address the role that sustainable energy technologies might play. This included not only the technical aspects of renewable energy and energy-efficient technologies but also related issues such as economics, jobs potential, environmental benefits, current and near-term market potential, model programs in the public and private sectors, institutional and legal barriers, etc.
