For a nation as vast and diverse as the United States, energy is a complicated and critical topic to manage. Over the past 40 years, the US Department of Energy has provided Americans with access to information on how to be energy aware while also rolling out major projects, particularly in clean energy dependence.
Venta USA is passionate about the clean energy efforts we see taking place around the world, especially here in the United States. Our parent company, Venta-Luftwäscher GmbH, is a certified green energy climate protection company.
Our products are environmentally friendly. All our devices are manufactured completely with green electricity, completely recyclable and constructed for sustainability. Their power consumption and energy efficiency is already low, and we optimize it continuously. Venta devices allow you to sustainably reduce your costs.
Additionally, Venta is proud to have acclaimed actor Edward Norton, also an environmental activist, be part of our Venta Community.
Because of all this, Venta USA recognizes the importance of the US Department of Energy’s mission to continuously make new strides towards energy efficiency.
On October 1st, 1977, the first Secretary of Energy, Dr. James R. Schlesinger, laid out the mission of the new US Department of Energy. It was crucial to address the ongoing energy crisis at the time and the emerging energy demands of the nation. Handling both the nuclear energy activities and the handful of energy related programs already in place, the new department had their work cut out for them to devise a strong plan for the future.
Each decade saw its focus change with the current events of the time:

The US Department of Energy (DOE) manages several hot topics of interest including science and innovation, energy economy and security and safety.
As a company, Venta values clean energy and energy efficiency. And while clean energy is most commonly associated with the primary function and responsibility of the DOE, it is only a small portion of all the areas covered.
Here’s a brief breakdown of what hot topics are managed by the DOE:
It’s our mission here at Venta to not only maintain energy efficient and clean energy practices, but also to spread the word on the importance of being energy aware.
Throughout it’s 40 years of service, the US Department of Energy has created many resources to help encourage energy awareness and action. From on-site programs to social media events, there’s been considerable effort to teach and inform the general public about how to be more energy aware.
