May 8, 2007

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) recently announced the appointment of two deputy assistant secretaries. David E. Rodgers will become the first deputy assistant secretary for Energy Efficiency in the DOE’s history, and Steven G. Chalk will become the deputy assistant secretary for Renewable Energy. Together, they will oversee the technology development and deployment of the Nation’s applied R&D portfolio for clean, domestic and affordable technologies. Both have extensive background in energy policy, technology and the DOE’s commercialization efforts.

“The escalating importance of the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy to address critical national needs of energy security, environmental stewardship and economic competitiveness demand us to evolve the way we manage and lead the portfolio for acceleration of market penetration of the technologies the taxpayer has invested in over the last quarter-century,” said Assistant Secretary Alexander Karsner.
