Fostering development of a renewable energy industry is critical to ensuring energy security and sustained economic development. The United States recently lost its status as global leader in new financial investment in renewable energy, while investment in renewable energy has increased in the developing world. For example, Brazil is the sixth largest investor in renewable energy and has moved up in renewable energy rankings. It is time for the United States to regain its leadership role and create a stable climate for renewable energy investment.
