| Reinventing the Wheel ... DOE Style |
By Stephen R. Yurek; Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute; Arlington, Va.
|Take all the things you’ve heard about government—how it is slow to act, inept, not thorough, etc.—and throw it out the window. Yes, there are parts of government, at all levels, that have one or more of those attributes, but there is one department of the federal government that is determined to show the nation it means business when it comes to enforcing federal energy-efficiency regulations.

| DOE Awards $92 Million for Energy Research |
|U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu has announced 43 research projects that aim to improve how the United States uses and produces energy. Funded with $92 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act through the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE’s) Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), project selections focus on accelerating innovation in green technology while increasing U.S. competitiveness in grid scale energy storage, power electronics, and building efficiency.

| Smart Grid Summit to be Held in Washington, D.C. |
|The Alliance to Save Energy’s Policy Summit, “From Power Plant to Plug & Beyond: Energy Efficiency Opportunities Across the Smart Grid,” will be held in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 14. A free event, the summit will be a discussion on the role energy efficiency should play in creating a smart grid that reaches all end-use sectors. [More] |
| DOE to Implement Cool Roofs |
|U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu has announced a series of initiatives under way at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to more broadly implement cool-roof technologies for DOE facilities and buildings across the federal government. Cool roofs use lighter-colored roofing surfaces or special coatings to reflect more of the sun's heat, helping improve building efficiency by reducing cooling costs and offsetting carbon emissions.
