DOE's plans to accelerate clean energy with IoT

October 10, 2016

Technologies that connect and automate our daily lives can bring mobility and convenience, but they also can drive up energy use and emissions.

David Friedman, head of the Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, shared his vision for how we can break down market and organizational barriers to ensure that connected and automated cars, infrastructure and technology solutions deliver on their promised benefits while playing a critical role in building a low-carbon economy at VERGE 16.

"We’ve set out to not just sustain American leadership, but to win the clean energy race," said Friedman.

He challenged stakeholders from every sector to invest in the cross-sector research, partnerships and policy choices needed to tap into connected and automated technology to accelerate an energy revolution that’s been underway for nearly a decade.
