Secretary Moniz: What the Natural Gas Boom Means for Renewables

May 29, 2013

In a new video released on May 23 by the Energy Department, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz comments on how the United States should take advantage of the natural gas boom and use it as an opportunity to further develop renewable energy sources like wind, solar, geothermal, and hydropower. Secretary Moniz, who was sworn into office on May 21, made the comments during his first employee Town Hall meeting.

“The way I look at it is that this natural gas boom is a boon. First of all, we all know that it is partially responsible for the decrease in CO2 emissions that we have experienced over the last years in the absence of, at least, over-arching legislation." For the full story, see the Energy Blog.
