“U.S. oil dependence exposes consumers, and the economy at large, to the volatility of the global oil market. Oil dependence is one of the United States’ greatest economic risks and is unsustainable. The country must mobilize and take action to finally address this problem.” 

– Frederick W. Smith, Chairman, President and CEO of FedEx Corporation and Co-Chair of SAFE’s Energy Security Leadership Council

Energy Security is Our National Security

“Our overwhelming reliance on oil as a transportation fuel means our servicemen and women must accept the burden of securing the world’s oil supply lines to protect against supply disruptions and economically devastating price spikes. The more we do here at home to lessen our reliance on oil, the more we help our soldiers abroad.”

– General James Conway (Ret.), 34th Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps and Co-chair of SAFE’s Energy Security Leadership Council

Energy Security is Our Transportation Future

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA - APRIL 15: A Google employee sends a computer e-mail near one of the many electric cars owned and leased by the company on April 15, 2008 in Mountain View, California. The electric hybrid cars are charged from rooftop solar panels. The Google campus has numerous green buildings designed for minimum power usage that helps reduce the company's carbon footprint. The campus has one of the largest corporate solar installations in the world which produces 1.6 megawatts of electricity, enough to power 1000 homes. 9,212 solar photovoltaic panels cover rooftops of 6 buildings and 2 carports. The electricity produced offsets nearly 30% of peak electricity consumption for those buildings. The system, switched on in mid-2007, will pay for itself in approximately 7.5 years.

“We can’t just say there is a risk behind electrification–the risk is not to partner or not to participate, or to contribute, or to understand. The trend is coming.”

Carlos Ghosn, Chairman and CEO, Renault-Nissan Alliance
