Heather Zichal, President Obama’s top energy advisor, has been named the luncheon speaker at the Energy Independence Summit on Monday April 8. Organizers note that Zichal helped to shape and execute many of the President’s top energy and climate priorities, including historic new fuel economy standards.
Zichal will discuss the President’s recent proposal for $2 billion to fund new research and development of clean energy technologies (F&F, March 17).
