How to Participate:

The Secretary of Commerce is seeking members for the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Advisory Committee!


The Department of Commerce recently revised its policy regarding appointment of federally-registered lobbyists to Department advisory committees. The Secretary of Commerce will now consider nominations of federally-registered lobbyists for appointment on the RE&EEAC. In light of this policy change, the Department has extended the deadline for submitting nominations to 4:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) on August 29, 2014. Please see this Notice for additional information. Please also note that the Department is in the process of amending the RE&EEAC charter to reflect the revised policy.

Nominations: The Secretary of Commerce invites nominations to the committee, of U.S. citizens who will represent U.S. companies in the renewable energy and energy efficiency sector that trade internationally, or U.S. trade associations or other U.S. private sector organizations with activities focused on the competitiveness of U.S. exports of renewable energy and energy efficiency goods and services. No member may represent a company that is majority owned or controlled by a foreign government entity or foreign government entities. Nominees meeting the eligibility requirements will be considered based upon their ability to carry out the goals of the Committee as articulated above. If you are interested in applying or nominating someone else to become a member of the Committee, please provide the following information:

(1) Sponsor letter on the company's, trade association's or organization's letterhead containing the name, title, and relevant contact information (including phone, fax, and email address) of the individual requesting consideration;

(2) An affirmative statement that the nominee will be able to meet the expected time commitments of Committee work. Committee work includes (1) attending in-person committee meetings roughly four times per year (lasting one day each), (2) undertaking additional work outside of full committee meetings including subcommittee conference calls or meetings as needed, and (3) frequently drafting, preparing, or commenting on proposed recommendations to be evaluated at Committee meetings;

(3) Short biography of nominee, including credentials;

(4) Brief description of the company, trade association, or organization to be represented and its business activities; company size (number of employees and annual sales); and export markets served;

(5) An affirmative statement that the nominee is not a Federally registered lobbyist, and that the nominee understands that if appointed, he/she will not be allowed to continue to serve as a Committee member if the nominee becomes a Federally registered lobbyist;

(6) An affirmative statement that the nominee meets all Committee eligibility requirements. Please do not send company, trade association, or organization brochures or any other information.

Nominations may be emailed to or faxed to the attention of Ryan Mulholland at 202-482-5665, or mailed to Ryan Mulholland, Office of Energy & Environmental Industries, Room 4053, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230, and must be received by August 29, 2014.
