Private Sector Energy Task Force

Mission Statement

The Fairfax County Private Sector Energy Task Force identified opportunities to develop a transformational vision, supported by achievable strategies that defined the steps our community can take to position itself as a leader in the area of energy efficiency, sustainability, and “green” technology.


The Private Sector Energy Task Force was created by Chairman Sharon Bulova and is chaired by Leo Schefer, President of the Washington Airports Task Force. The purpose of the Task Force was to bring together prominent members of the Fairfax County business community as well as academia to create a new energy strategy for the County.

The Task Force created a transformational vision and identified scalable, community-wide energy efficiency projects focused on producing measurable results for businesses. By achieving a reduction of energy use for Fairfax County businesses of all sizes, these projects will give companies a clear return on their investment not only through lowered costs but also through increased competitiveness in the region and in the country.

The new energy strategy was also designed to attract green collar jobs to Fairfax County. This will be achieved by fostering a business community that these industries find attractive, one that is committed, across all sectors, to achieving ambitious energy efficiency goals.
