          The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) and the House Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Caucus hosted a briefing on the President’s budget request for energy efficiency and renewable energy for FY 2013. As the administration and many Congressional leaders call for increased investments in clean technology to create jobs, improve national energy security, and ensure the United States remains competitive globally, federal agencies and the Congress also are looking for innovative ways to stretch and trim budgets in a tight fiscal environment. At this briefing, representatives from the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Congressional Research Service gave an overview of requested funding levels for various programs, the budget priorities and their justification, and provided context on how these requests compare to overall energy funding in previous years. www.eesi.org/030212_budget
