White House Champions of Change
Erin Geegan was selected as a Champion of Change for Renewable Energy, as part of President Obama’s “Winning the Future” initiative (whitehouse.gov/champions). On April 19th, the White House will honor leaders who are making a difference advancing new ideas that lead the way to a clean energy future and an economy that’s built to last.
Each week, the White House recognizes a different group of Americans nominated through a public process who embody the President’s goal of building an America that will win the future. These groups range from educators to entrepreneurs to community activists. The Office of Public Engagement, and the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) will host an event to recognize Champions of Change for Renewable Energy. They will be honoring Zam Energy's commitment to advancing innovative renewable energy ideas that will strengthen U.S. economic and energy security. Zam Energy was selected because their work is helping to power a new clean energy economy with the potential to substantially reduce energy imports from foreign sources.
The event will be streamed live at 12:30 pm ET on April 19th at www.whitehouse.gov/live.
