Colorado, California, Texas, Montana and 32 other states have enacted state-wide energy standards.

The result?

New jobs, a boost to clean energy use and certainty for companies that invest in new clean energy projects.

Our new memo suggests it’s time to build on success and by examining a National Clean Energy Standard. Although the detailed mechanisms of a Clean Energy Standard are still being determined, there is clear momentum to implement standards once they have been fine-tuned. We need to move quickly on this, or we will fall even further behind China, the EU, and others that are ramping up production of new clean energy technologies.
