Advanced Energy Economy Statement on President Trump’s State of the Union Address
Washington, D.C., January 30, 2018 – National business group Advanced Energy Economy released the following statement on the occasion of President Trump’s State of the Union Address:
“As President Trump delivers his first State of the Union address, we encourage the President to embrace advanced energy as a key part of U.S. energy dominance,” said Malcolm Woolf, Senior Vice President of Policy at Advanced Energy Economy, a national business association. “Last year, we had to fight the Administration’s attempt to skew energy markets against advanced energy. We hope that this year the Administration looks to capitalize on the advanced energy industry's ability to promote secure, clean and affordable energy, not stand in the way of the industry's growth. The $200 billion advanced energy industry – and the more than 3 million advanced energy workers across the United States – can enhance the President’s agenda by driving economic growth, lowering energy bills, and modernizing the electric grid.”
