ACORE Statement On Recently Released NREL Study

The American people want renewable energy, in fact, as much as our industries can produce. It's a great day to be in renewable energy. Our day has come.

Washington, DC, October 23 -- The following statement was issued today by the American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) about the just-released report on the supply and demand for renewable energy in the United States by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado:

"The study is yet another confirmation that the demand for renewable energy is growing rapidly and like any market there may be temporary imbalances in the industries' abilities to respond to a specific technology," said Mike Eckhart, ACORE President.

Eckhart continued: "For some 30 years, while the technologies were in development, detractors complained that the American people would not buy renewable energy. Now, demand is outstripping supply. Our detractors have been proven wrong. The American people want renewable energy, in fact, as much as our industries can produce. It's a great day to be in renewable energy. Our day has come."

ACORE submits that consumers and businesses can be assured that whether it's wind, solar, biofuels, wave/current, geothermal and other renewable sources of energy that all of these industries are moving quickly and to meet demand. And they can look forward to the positive impacts renewable energy is beginning to have on our climate, environment, local and regional economies, and the nation's energy security.

ACORE, a 501(c)(3) membership nonprofit organization headquartered in Washington, D.C., is dedicated to bringing renewable energy into the mainstream of the US economy and lifestyle through information and communications programs. ACORE provides a common platform for the wide range of interests in the renewable energy community including renewable energy industries, associations, utilities, end users, professional service firms, financial institutions and government agencies. ACORE serves as a forum through which these parties work together on common interests. Membership information is available at:
