President Obama’s top science adviser “is confident that a big energy policy review underway isn’t destined to join the long list of federal energy plans over the past several decades that are ignored after completion,” National Journal reports.

John Holdren, whose Office of Science and Technology Policy is helping to lead the effort, told Platts Energy Week TV that “the breadth of agencies involved and the level of work with outside parties will give the study staying power.”

Said Holdren: “We are thinking about energy obviously as a problem that is important to the economy; it is important to the environment; it is important to our national security; and all the agencies that have stakes in those domains are going to participate.”
