Former President Bill Clinton spoke in Las Vegas Tuesday as part of the National Clean Energy Summit at the Bellagio.
President Clinton told those gathered that the United States is making progress when it comes to clean energy but that we still have a long way to go.
"Today we only get 11 percent of our electricity from renewables," President Clinton said. "If we keep going we might get to 14 percent by 2035."
Clinton said Europe is aiming for 20 percent by 2020 and that Germany, Denmark and other countries have already exceeded their goals.
Some of Clinton's suggestions for attaining clean energy goals included use of wind, solar and hydro power as well as cutting down on coal-burning plants.
The fifth annual summit is hosted by Sen. Harry Reid, MGM Resorts, UNLV and some national organizations.
