Green Powered Technology’s President and CEO, Phillip Green, received an appointment by U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker to serve on the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Advisory Committee (REEEAC). Initially established in 2010, the REEEAC comprises senior-level private-sector representatives who advise the Secretary of Commerce on the development and administration of programs and policies to expand the export competitiveness of U.S. renewable energy and energy efficiency products and services.

“The rapid increase in global demand for clean energy technologies and services provides a great opportunity for American businesses to introduce their world-class products and services to new markets,” Secretary Pritzker said. “The Committee’s guidance and recommendations are instrumental in our efforts to address global climate change and promote U.S. leadership in environmental stewardship while expanding U.S. exports and strengthening our nation’s economy.”

Throughout its history, the REEEAC has provided recommendations to address a wide range of issues, including: fostering market conditions to strengthen the environmental technology manufacturing base, enhancing support and coordination from government and research programs, reducing gaps in export financing, and improving programs of federal trade policy and promotion agencies.
