WindStream Technologies at the White House
WASHINGTON, DC. (Oct. 22, 2009) - WindStream Technologies, Inc., a manufacturer of wind energy technology announced today that it attended a special meeting at the White House as part of a special delegation of environmental and energy firms from Southern Indiana.
Dan Bates, President and CEO of WindStream Technologies, Inc. attended the Clean Energy Economy Forum at the White House on October 22. Clean energy leaders from across the country were invited to discuss sustainability, energy generation, and job creation.
This forum, as part of the White House's effort to enrich the clean energy economy with aims of energy independence, environmental protection, and job creation, demonstrated the Administration's commitment to this mission. The Obama Administration announced its plan to allocate approximately $80 billion for energy products, as part of the The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
The lead panelists at the event included Secretary of Energy, Steven Chu and Secretary of Commerce, Gary Locke. Secretary Chu and Secretary Locke outlined priorities and efforts already underway by the Administration to incubate and further encourage new clean energy ventures, like WindStream Technologies. Secretary Chu and Secretary Locke were joined by other senior administration officials including an opening by Director of the White House Office of Energy and Climate Change Policy, Carol Browner.
WindStream CEO, Dan Bates, met with several officials as well as other clean energy stakeholders at the White House event. WindStream Technologies is committed to developing and producing wind turbines that are competitive with cheaper, but dirtier energy sources, aspiring to be more affordable than solar and small wind turbine energy generation solutions available today.
