Background: The Secretary of Commerce established the RE&EEAC pursuant to his discretionary authority and in accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (5 U.S.C. App.) on July 14, 2010. The RE&EEAC was re-chartered on June 12, 2014. The RE&EEAC provides the Secretary of Commerce with consensus advice from the private sector on the development and administration of programs and policies to enhance the international competitiveness of the U.S. renewable energy and energy efficiency industries.
During the October 15th conference call, committee members will consider and potentially approve recommendations and/or input for the Secretary of Commerce.
A limited amount of time before the close of the meeting will be available for pertinent oral comments from members of the public attending the meeting.
