In this article, the author discusses several issues related to energy efficiency and sustainability in the U.S. The author cites the three elements that help the U.S. states attract green business such as creating a market for renewable energy and energy-efficiency (RE/EE) products, offering incentive for researchers, and strong leadership in RE/EE businesses. According to the author, the U.S. remains to fall behind the race toward green economy revolution although it implemented the elements.
