DOE's Andy Karsner in Silicon Valley

DOE's Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewables Energy, (EERE), John Mizroch, disclosed that Alexander "Andy" Karsner, DPE's Assistant Secretary for EERE, is in Silicon Valley this week trying to connect the dots between venture funds and technologies that can help reduce the United States' reliance on fossil fuels.

Mizroch was mum on details but he said Karsner and his allies inside the Administration, which included many at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, are going all-out to make the most of the two-plus years left of the Bush Administration.

The White House is doing its part. Deputy White House Chief of Staff Joel Kaplan gave an interview to the Washington Post, published today (Wed. Oct. 18) asserting "There's still plenty of time to get important things done if people on both sides of the aisle are willing to work together to do it." Kaplan said Bush will "look for partners in Congress" to develop, among other things, alternative energy supplies.
