The New Apollo Program Solution for Clean Energy Jobs, Infrastructure & Environmental Opportunities
The Apollo Alliance is a consortium of high visibility team members from government, nonprofits and industry who are focusing on "ENERGY" as that next national expansion opportunity.
New Apollo Program's comprehensive economic investment strategyThe Apollo Alliance works to mobilize America's wealth, skills, leadership, natural resources, and entrepreneurial spirit to overcome the challenges confronting us.
Released in September, 2008, the New Apollo Program is a comprehensive economic investment strategy to build America's 21st century clean energy economy and dramatically cut energy bills for families and businesses.
New Green Economy for American Leadership
The question being asked by the Apollo strategists is, "Do we continue with business as usual,...or do we seize the opportunity to forge a new path — building a new clean energy economy that creates good jobs and broadly shared prosperity for our future?"
The Tenets of the New Apollo Program
The Apollo Alliance, a national coalition of business, environmental, labor, and community leaders who are crafting a program to equal that of the World War II industrial mobilization that made America the world’s dominant power, producing half its economic output. The National Interstate Highway System, designed to make America less vulnerable to attacks on its cities, became an economic and social web connecting people, communities and metropolitan centers. And it was the Apollo space program that gave the nation the advances in computer sciences and digital communication that drove this country’s economic expansion for decades to come.
The Clean Energy FutureThe New Apollo Program provides a blueprint for the new economy. It is an ambitious program, and America is up to the challenge. As the newly elected president and Congress take office in 2009, Americans have an extraordinary opportunity to embrace bold action and take charge of our destiny.
Leadership for the Green Economy"We did it before. We can do it again," says the Apollo leadership.
The Apollo team is crafting strategies to ensure that a core set of American values and standards are embedded in the new energy economy:
