Applied Materials Applauds Kerry-Lieberman Legislation
On behalf of Applied Materials, we commend Senators Kerry and Lieberman in advancing this key piece of a comprehensive renewable energy and climate package in the U.S. Senate. Today's effort, when added to other legislative action, brings this country closer to regaining our position as a leader in the global clean energy technology industry. This industry will create millions of jobs and billions of dollars of economic development in the coming decades and could be a major driver of our economic future.
We look forward to the national adoption of the following policies that will make the U.S. not only a leader in clean technology, but also energy independent: a strong renewable electricity standard; low-cost renewable energy financing; and increased federal procurement of renewable energy.
