The Energy Security, Innovation and Sustainability (ESIS) Initiative was launched in 2007 in recognition of the importance that energy security and sustainability have on 21st century competitiveness. The initiative was designed to create a public-private agenda to drive private sector demand for sustainable energy solutions and support the creation of new industries, markets and jobs.
The recommendations made by the ESIS Initiative are now central to the U.S. Manufacturing Competitiveness Initiative and its goal of creating an energy efficient ecosystem for American manufacturing.
About the National Energy Summit & International Dialogue
In September 2009, the Council on Competitiveness brought together a broad coalition of CEOs, presidents of major research universities, labor union leaders,
and top government officials both from the U.S. and abroad – a single voice for moving forward on energy transformation. That powerful voice is reflected in Drive: Private Sector Demand for Sustainable Energy Solutions, a Comprehensive Roadmap to Achieve Energy Security, Sustainability and Competitiveness.
