Our energy portfolio should look like a Benelton ad — lots of diversity

Some of those lessons can certainly be applied to the United States.” Tom Wolf, executive director of the Energy Council at the Illinois Chamber of Commerce, said he was interested in seeing “how the best and brightest energy experts in Israel are tackling the goal of meeting people’s thirst for energy along with their demand for a cleaner planet.”
