The Federal Government as a Consumer of Clean Technologies: Potential Business Opportunities

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act fostered a great deal of public-private collaboration on clean technology. Two years on, the Department of Energy, Department of Defense and other agencies continue to fund research and development and demonstration projects. And recognizing that the government is a steady consumer of energy, various agencies have set goals for the purchase of products and technology that will reduce use of fossil fuels, increase energy efficiency, and increase use of renewable and alternative sources. Such initiatives make these agencies significant purchasers of clean technologies.

Please join Pillsbury for a summary of the policies and collaborations that are making the government a key consumer of clean energy and technologies. We will look at the types of clean technology funded to date by the DOE and DOD, and summarize the new programs announced in April by the DOE's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) as an indication of government goals and objectives. We will identify examples of government spending on clean energy and technologies, discuss the operational requirements for business owners, and explore the recently announced collaboration between the Navy and ARPA-E aimed at commercialization and deployment of clean technologies. Finally, we will review how commercial businesses align their internal processes and procedures to comply with the requirements imposed on federal contractors or other recipients of federal funding.
