GreenBiz highlighted an E2 panel from the GreenBiz 18 conference in Scottsdale, Arizona which focused on why clean energy businesses leaders across the spectrum increase their advocacy effort and make their voices heard to lawmakers on federal and state policy issues.

  • Nicole Lederer, co-founder of E2
  • Jon Powers, co-founder of CleanCapital
  • Emily Reichert, CEO of Greentown Labs
  • Tommy Hayes, policy partnerships manager at Lyft

“Some of you might wonder what the appropriations process in Washington, D.C., right now has to do with you or the infrastructure bill or even the farm bill,” said Nicole Lederer, chair and co-founder of E2, a non-partisan, non-profit specializing in policy issues. “I would argue that they are all major opportunities to advance the clean economy and your positions within it.

“This budget is cutting costs by refusing to invest in the future,” said Carlisle. “America can’t lead in clean energy or vehicle technologies if it ignores the fastest growing energy sources and punishes businesses developing them. U.S. companies can’t invest in new technologies if we don’t fund the research that takes them from demonstration to commercialization.”
