Submission + - Has DOE Reneged on Its 1977 Charter? (

sterlingda writes: "Begun officially on August 4, 1977 during the Carter administration, now with 16,000 employees, 100,000 contract employees and an annual budget of over $24 billion, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) was created to reduce America's dependence on foreign oil; develop energy efficient technologies; strengthen America's energy security, environmental quality, and economic vitality; and ...bring clean, reliable and affordable energy technologies to the marketplace. 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."
