The 2009 Green Inaugural Ball


The 2009 Green Inaugural Ball took place in the Donald W. Reynolds Center for American Art. More than 1100 guests celebrated the inaugural of Barack Obama and Joseph Biden and America's green economy. Former Vice President Al Gore was the event's Honorary Chair. Many people and environmentalist groups, who are promoting the use of renewable energy sources like wind, solar, geothermal, tidal energy had joined the event.

The event was executed in accordance with House and Senate ethics rules without the sit-down dinner. Everybody celebrated the event with open bar with a message to start green revolution and fight climate change. The video screen showed pictures of workers installing solar panels and touring wind farms.

Indeed the event was a green as possible. The menu included locally-sourced, organic, and seasonal food. All acceptable leftover food was donated to DC Central Kitchen. The green elements like efficient lighting, green carpet and limited signage were taken care of. The emissions generated from the electricity used at the event were offset by buying emission-reduction credits from Native Energy.

President and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), Rhone Resch said that this ball is an important way to showcase how and with the right policies, partners and immediate reinvestment in America, we can bring about the change we need of our energy future. He also said that solar, wind and other renewable energy sources are ready now to power our new energy economy and it will help us to achieve national energy security.
