In his weekly address, US President Barack Obama highlighted the need for clean energy as part of his economic recovery plan.
In the address, President Obama mentioned , ‘The work of building wind turbines and solar panels and the smart grid necessary to transport the clean energy they create; and laying broadband internet lines to connect rural homes, schools, and businesses to the information superhighway.’
In President Obama’s pre-election New Energy Plan, he outlined proposed investment of $150bn in clean energy over the next ten years. The plan targeted ten per cent of US electricity to be derived from renewable sources by 2012, increasing to twenty-five per cent by 2025.
