(CNN) – President Obama said Wednesday the United States must take the lead on energy, citing the "enormous job creation potential that exists."

Obama's remarks came at the end of his first quarterly meeting with the Economic Recovery Advisory Board, which was created in February to provide the administration with independent, nonpartisan advice on how to promote economic growth and stability.

The focus of Wednesday's meeting, which was streamed live on the White House Web site, was job creation and green energy.

Obama told the board members he's seen "some return to normalcy" in parts of the financial markets.
