Clean Air, Clean Ener­gy, Ener­gy Secu­ri­ty, Low Car­bon Fuels

Few have worn more hats in fed­er­al gov­ern­ment than Michael Goo. But whether he’s Asso­ciate Admin­is­tra­tor for Pol­i­cy at EPA, Coun­sel to the House Ener­gy and Com­merce Com­mit­tee, or Senior Pol­i­cy Advi­sor at the DOE, there exists a com­mon thread across Michael’s 30-year career: advanc­ing clean air and cli­mate change leg­is­la­tion and rule­mak­ings.

Michael played key roles in draft­ing the 2005 and 2007 Ener­gy Acts, the Wax­man-Markey cli­mate change leg­is­la­tion, EPA’s green­house gas rule­mak­ings under Clean Air Act sec­tion 111, and EPA’s Renew­able Fuels Stan­dard. A lawyer by train­ing, Michael also con­tributed to the legal defense of the 1997 Nation­al Ambi­ent Air Qual­i­ty Stan­dards.

A well-known expert on clean air and cli­mate change issues, Michael has pro­vid­ed Con­gres­sion­al tes­ti­mo­ny on rules and reg­u­la­tions.
