Ratatouille, a Disney·Pixar character, is helping DOE to promote home energy efficiency.


DOE announced last week that it has teamed up with Disney in a nationwide campaign to promote energy efficiency through a television spot based on the upcoming Disney%%POINT%%Pixar film "Ratatouille." The 30-second animated spot features the characters Remy, Emile, and Skinner, and urges viewers to make the switch from incandescent bulbs to compact fluorescent lights. To learn more ways to save energy, viewers are then pointed to DOE's energy.gov Web site, which features links for kids and adults. The DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) now features the TV spot on its home page &&a href="http://www.eere.energy.gov/">http://www.eere.energy.gov/> , as well as on its Consumer &&a href="http://www.eere.energy.gov/consumer/">http://www.eere.energy.gov/consumer/>%%amp;a href="http://www.energy.gov/news/5131.htm">http://www.energy.gov/news/5131.htm>  and the "Ratatouille" feature on the energy.gov home page &&a href="http://www.energy.gov/">http://www.energy.gov/> .
