(Denver, Colorado, 2/20/2006) Leslie Glustrom (cq), from the Sierra Club, prepares the background for a press conference in Golden featuring energy experts and advocates before the President's visit to the National Renewable Laboratory (NREL) on Tuesday. The group called on the federal government to put its money where its mouth is and fully fund clean energy research and development. Despite the fact that the President recently restored 32 jobs that were cut from NREL, funding for the institution has declined for the past three years. Colorado was the first state to pass a renewable energy standard in 2004 though Amendment 37, which calls the state to meet 10% of the state's electricity needs with clean, renewable energy production by 2015. A group of energy experts and advocates said in the press conference in Golden that the country needs to start seriously investing now in clean and safe energy technologies, using clean domestic resources, and creating American jobs in the renewable energy fields.
