President Obama has been a reliable advocate for the cleantech sector, but his ability to deliver tangible benefits is not what it was in 2008. Energy legislation is a significant piece of unfinished business from the administration's first term, but polls suggest it is not a high priority among voters. In a recent survey, likely voters ranked energy policy the 9th most important issue from a list of 10 choices. And even if energy becomes a higher political priority, the debate will likely be shaped by deficit concerns and developments in the natural gas industry.
