Solar Industry Mag closed out its on article industry reactions to the election with a section on AEE:
Advanced Energy Economy (AEE), which describes itself as a “national association of businesses that are making the energy we use secure, clean and affordable,” says it plans to send to the transition team for President-Elect Trump a memo outlining ways to “usher in a new era of secure, clean affordable energy.”
As the new administration prepares to take office, AEE says it is providing recommendations to spur private investment, support job creation, improve grid reliability and drive down costs for consumers.
In its memo, AEE presents three key themes for the transition team to consider: modernize the electric power system as part of rebuilding the nation’s infrastructure, transform utility business models to speed up power system progress and allow all technologies to compete in order to achieve objectives. (The full memo can be downloaded here.)
AEE has also submitted specific policy recommendations for nine federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Energy, Department of Defense, Department of Transportation, Environmental Protection Agency and Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
Graham Richard, CEO of AEE, says in a statement, “The advanced energy industry can contribute to the many urgent needs facing our country, and we look forward to working with President Trump to deliver an advanced energy future for the nation.”
