President Obama Discusses Clean Energy

ImageThis video from President Obama about the importance of clean energy was taped during his recent visit to the Allison Transmissions plant in Indianapolis, Indiana.  His address underscores the significance and the value of the work we do every day across the DOE complex to tackle America's energy challenges.

The President was there to highlight how clean energy companies like Allison will help keep the economy growing, create new jobs, and make sure America remains the most prosperous nation on Earth. President Obama also explained that clean energy is also part of the ultimate solution to high gas prices.  He said that until we reduce our dependence on oil, we will be held hostage to the ups and downs of the oil markets.  That means we need to continue to invest in clean, alternative sources of energy like advanced biofuels and natural gas and more efficient cars, buses and trucks.
