Former U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman and former Secretary of State George Schultz announced the release of The State Clean Energy Cookbook: A Dozen Recipes for State Action on Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. The development of the bipartisan report was led by former Senator Jeff Bingaman and former Secretary of State and Treasury George Schultz under a joint study by Stanford University’s Steyer-Taylor Center for Energy Policy and Finance and the Hoover Institution’s Shultz-Stephenson Task Force on Energy Policy. The report highlights several great state energy best practices examples. Of particular note, the bipartisan group recommended only one federal action — expanded support for the U.S. State Energy Program. The release of the report was covered by USA Today.
