What is STEAB?
The State Energy Advisory Board (STEAB) develops recommendations for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Congress regarding initiation, design, implementation, and evaluation of federal energy efficiency and renewable energy programs. In doing so, STEAB serves to integrate and provide consistency between federal, state and local activities.
STEAB subscribes to the concept of sustainable energy development, by which the nation seeks to meet current energy, economic, and environmental needs while preserving the means to meet the needs of future generations. Federal and state investments in deploying developed energy efficient technologies have helped to free American capital for more productive uses. Further, the ongoing manufacture of new efficient and renewable technologies has led us to capture additional markets worldwide and created more high-quality jobs here at home.
