National Clean Energy Summit 2.0: Jobs and the New Economy

Report and video highlights from the 2009 conference hosted by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and the Center for American Progress Action Fund.


Participants at the National Clean Energy Summit 2.0 in Las Vegas, NV, discussed ways smart federal and state-level policies can work to upscale existing markets for energy-efficiency retrofits, renewable energy, and energy infrastructure in a way that creates jobs, saves consumers money, and generates private investment. In conjunction with the summit, John Podesta and former Senator Timothy E. Wirth (D-CO) authored a short memo about the promise of natural gas as a bridge fuel for the 21st century, and CAP released a report with the Energy Future Coalition.
