There are major challenges facing the U.S. today, and one of the most important of all is to meet growing energy demands. The U.S. needs a more diverse, cleaner mix of energy sources (see figure 1) that will provide security without causing irreversible harm to the globe. With shaky renewable energy support from the American public, gas prices at an all-time high (despite slight drop this week), spending from the 2009 stimulus bill mostly spent (see expired U.S. energy initiatives above) and a presidential race bringing significant focus to energy policy, clean energy will have to become more than a political-focal-point – Zpryme examines the clean energy landscape.
