Environmental Leader Q&A Podcast: How Did the Environment Fare in Congress Last Year?

Noll, the Legislative Director for Energy and Transportation Programs for the Natural Resources Defense Council, told Energy Manager Today Editor Carl Weinschenk that provisions in the law could create a sense of support and long-term stability for the wind and solar sectors.
