This weekend was an incredible journey for two ACE Youth Advisory Board members. Shreya Indukuri and Daniela Lapidous, juniors at the Harker Upper School in San Jose, California, traveled to our nation’s capitol to share their carbon-cutting success with thousands of people at Power Shift 2011, and hold a meeting to discuss energy-saving strategies with leaders at the White House.
After speaking on the Power Shift main stage on Saturday night (to an excited crowd of more than 8,000 people), Shreya and Daniela met with the U.S. Chief Technology Officer, Aneesh Chopra, and the Acting Under Secretary of Energy, Arun Majumdar, to discuss how to scale their wildly successful carbon-cutting projects across the country.
During the meeting, Shreya and Daniela shared their success with SmartPowerEd and encouraged the White House to help schools across America reduce their energy use through simple and cost-effective measures.
What a weekend. Read on to find out how their meeting went…
