New US Energy Act Call for Many Changes
Consumers may not feel an immediate impact, but an energy act signed into law last week could signal long-term changes in the cars we drive, the auto fuels we pump and the appliances we use every day.
The provisions to boost automobile fuel efficiency and production of renewable fuels got the most attention, but the law also calls for more efficient lights, buildings and appliances, and research and development of advanced energy technologies.
"We've got the technical know-how to do almost everything cited in the energy bill," said Dana Christensen, the associate director for Oak Ridge National Laboratory who oversees energy and engineering sciences. "Now, the challenge is for U.S. manufacturing centers to adopt the new technologies."
