7 Identified a liaison to the Public Policy Committee Worked integrally with the new PPC Energy & Environment Subcommittee Reviewed and contributed to two Key Issues for the Public Policy Committee 1. Climate Monitoring 2. Alternative Fuels & Energy Efficient Aviation Systems Public Policy / Congressional Visits Day
8 GEPC Trends Over the past year, interest in alternative fuels, energy efficiency and the environment has grown substantially. Numerous conferences had green as a central theme, including JPC, Inside Aerospace, NASAs Green Aviation Summit, and many more. Coordinating the AIAA activities to ensure all areas are addressed, while minimizing overlap, will remain a key challenge for GEPC. Ref: calendar/ htm
