Dare to DREAM™! - Double Renewable Energy in America

American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) | February 24, 2009

The American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) and the renewable energy industries in America are delighted to have a new administration committed to advancing renewable energy with a plan to create new clean energy jobs with a goal to double alternative energy production in the next three years.

ACORE believes we must respond immediately to this bold new leadership with our own pledge to help reach the goal. ACORE issues a Call for Action to each of our 600+ organizational members, and all other renewable energy organizations, asking each to come forward with your Action Plan to help achieve the DREAM: Double Renewable Energy in AMerica.

For more info, or to submit your Action Plan, visit this website:

Share it with like-minded industry advocates who welcome this opportunity to speak up on what we each plan to do to “Just Double It" by 2012. In turn, ACORE is committed to follow up with the government to ensure submitted plans are seen in Washington, DC.

Excerpts from Obama's Speech:

“We will double the production of alternative energy in the next three years… modernize more than 75 percent of federal buildings and improve the energy efficiency of 2 million American homes…"

“We will put Americans to work in jobs building solar panels and wind turbines, constructing fuel-efficient cars and buildings, and developing new energy technologies that will lead to even more jobs, more savings, and a cleaner, safer planet …"

“We will begin updating the way we get our electricity by starting to build a new smart grid that will save us money, protect our power sources from blackout or attack, and deliver clean, alternative forms of energy to every corner of our nation.“
