Sen. Hillary Clinton to Be Recognized for Leadership on Energy Issues on June 14

Sen. Clinton to Speak at 17th Annual Energy Efficiency Forum in Washington, D.C.

WASHINGTON, June 12 -- Sen. Hillary Clinton, D.-N.Y., will be recognized for her leadership on energy issues at the 17th annual Energy Efficiency Forum, June 14 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., receiving an Energy Leadership Award in the Congressional category.

Sen. Clinton will also speak at the event at 10 a.m., joining a roster of speakers who include U.S. Secretary of Energy Samuel W. Bodman, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D.-Calif., and Cheng Lianyuan, bureau director at the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Industrial Development, will discuss China's challenges balancing economic growth with energy conservation.

The theme of this year's Forum, "Energy Efficiency: The Path Toward Independence," highlights the growing awareness of energy's impact on U.S. security and the economy in today's world. The Forum, which is sponsored by the United States Energy Association (USEA) and Johnson Controls, Inc., is designed to raise awareness of the technical, economic and political solutions available to improve energy efficiency. The annual bipartisan event is attended by hundreds of executives and government officials who are involved with managing energy policy for their respective organizations.

The Congressional Energy Leadership Award recognizes a current or former member of Congress who has contributed to legislative achievements that encourage energy efficiency gains, particularly in federal government activities. The junior U.S. Senator from New York has made this country's energy independence one of her key issues. In December, Sen. Clinton helped launch the Democrats' Energy Independence 2020 plan. Sen. Clinton has also called for a "Strategic Energy Fund" to jumpstart research and investment in clean energy technologies and to help America reach the goal of reducing oil imports by at least 50 percent by 2025. Within her own state, Sen. Clinton has promoted investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy, recognizing the economic development benefits such investment creates.
