IEEE-USA and IEEE members with an interest in Energy Policy were in Washington on 15 and 16 June for our First Annual Energy Fly-In. This unique event gives IEEE members an unparalleled opportunity to directly influence the direction of Energy Policy in Washington
Energy underlies and connects three converging challenges that face the United States in the early 21st century: security, prosperity, and the environment. To address these issues, President Barack Obama and Congress have vowed to make energy issues a priority this year. This is your opportunity to have a direct impact on this critical process.
