The Energy Technology Leadership Group (ETLG) has officially launched to promote smarter, safer energy through the use of the most innovative technologies across the energy spectrum including fossil, solar, hydro, wind, biofuels, and geothermal.
An increasing number of public/private partnerships and individual companies are developing groundbreaking technologies to assist in the safe provision of reliable and cleaner energy. ETLG and its member companies will help educate members of Congress and various federal agencies and regulators about these timely technological advances, to assist them in drafting more accurate legislation and regulations.
“All too often, well-intended legislative or regulatory efforts have unintended and potentially negative consequences because they are based on inaccurate or incomplete information,” said Bryan Tackett, senior advisor at PD Frazer Associates and executive director of ETLG.
“ETLG will engage in an ongoing, open dialogue with policy framers and lawmakers on issues such as pipeline safety, carbon capture, energy efficiency, and delivery and sustainability. Through our work, we will contribute to a more comprehensive approach to smarter, safer energy development and delivery,” Tackett said.
ETLG will draw upon the North American experience and expertise of its chair, Paul Frazer, founder and owner of PD Frazer Associates. Frazer has worked on energy matters, and a broad range of U.S.-Canada cross-border issues, for almost twenty years in Washington, DC.
“Few public policy decision-makers realize how many North American firms have developed world-class technology addressing safer water filtration, new pipeline monitoring software systems, enhanced oil recovery and reclamation methodologies, or more efficient transmission of renewable power from source to grid,” Frazer said. “ETLG has been created to address how its members can work with Congress and the Administration to promote further public/private engagement at a time when it’s most needed.”
The new leadership group is actively seeking members interested in promoting the importance of energy technology development and implementation. Organizations interested in joining can find further information on the group’s website, www.energytechleaders.com.
