Clean Energy First!

Clean Energy First! is not sponsored by corporations - it's just the unvarnished view of national clean energy expert Scott Sklar.

Our Mission

 
A frank, no holds barred, bottom-line commentary and policy Web site.
 

No organization has been yet established to provide a focused "Clean Energy First" agenda in commentary, policy and politics. The world must move as aggressively as possible towards the maximum use of energy efficiency and conservation of energy, water and resources coupled with the maximum use of renewable energy for thermal and cooling (geo-exchange, geo and bio thermal, and solar thermal and daylighting) as well as renewable electric to include biomass, geothermal, solar (photovoltaics, concentrated solar power), wind and water technologies (tidal, wave, freeflow hydropower, and ocean currents and ocean thermal).

Natural gas should be utilized as an essential transition fuel while coal and nuclear are to be phased out. Waste heat, CFLs and LEDs, triple pane windows with maximum insulation and berming, advanced controls and remote diagnostics are to become standard technologies of day. The goal is to drive maximum transition o advanced clean technologies as fast as possible to address pollution (carcinogens, mercury, and regulated emissions such as SO2, NOx and particulates) as well as climate change gases; global security against terrorism and political instability, ease energy price fluctuations and curtailments of energy, and improve access by all the world to clean energy and maximum electric power quality - reliability without surges, sags and transients.

Membership to CEF Alert Service and Donations

Building awareness about clean energy requires several parallel approaches using media, the Internet, printed materials and displays. CEF wants to maximize exposure to clean energy options, initiatives, policies, and prime movers and users through newspaper ads on Capitol Hill to cutting edge displays and materials at key events and legislative times.
