Top Obama Advisers, Energy Experts to Join Rep. Ed Markey at MIT Forum

Energy Luminaries Browner, Holdren, Yergin, Moniz and Others to Discuss Massachusetts’ Role in Developing Clean Energy Jobs, Technology, Global Warming Policies

Rep. Edward J. Markey (D-Malden) will host President Obama’s top climate, energy and science advisers along with other energy experts at a forum at MIT on Monday, April 13 to discuss the future of clean energy in national policy and in the Massachusetts economy. As leaders in Washington strive to stabilize and grow our economy, clean energy solutions are showing the most promise. World-renowned energy experts will discuss how decisions made in Washington relate to the Massachusetts economy, our national security, and the threat of global warming.

Last week, Rep. Markey released draft legislation that will be the main congressional vehicle to push clean energy technologies and create millions of new jobs. Massachusetts is already seeing the benefits of clean energy jobs from the economic recovery package. The recovery package is expected to create or save nearly 80,000 jobs in the Bay State over the next two years alone.

Energy forum at MIT -- “Clean Power: Building a New Clean Energy Economy.” Sponsored by MIT in cooperation with Rep. Markey.
