Submission Has DOE Reneged on Its 1977 Charter?->

Three decades later, how has this well-funded federal department done? PES Network has posted a Poll, the results of which so far give an overwhelmingly negative assessment of the DOE's performance. What's your take? Has it become a matter of the foxes guarding the henhouse? (Regarding the response option: "Our NEC is going a better job", the "NEC" refers to the New Energy Congress, a relatively small group that specializes in finding and facilitating the best clean energy technologies."
