About This Event
A new report by the Center for American Progress and The Center for the Next Generation, called “Regional Energy, National Solutions: A Real Energy Vision for America,” examines non-fossil-fuel-based economic development strategies in six major regions of the country. These solutions highlight the current success and future potential of the clean energy economy, especially when these strategies are tailored to the specific needs and strengths of each region. America deserves better than the "one size fits all, drill everywhere and now" strategy, put forth by the American Petroleum Institute, that is designed to pad the pockets of the industries of yesterday. Our vision shows the way.
