President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is a long-term investment in America’s competitiveness—helping to rebuild the county’s roads and bridges, expand access to clean drinking water, tackle the climate crisis and advance environment justice by building a more resilient future and investing in communities that have too often been left behind.
This once-in-a-generation investment will help to deliver more clean energy, create new, good-paying jobs and lower costs for American families and workers by guiding the Nation towards a 100% carbon pollution-free electricity sector by 2035 and net-zero economy by 2050.
The investment is also historic for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), as it represents the most dramatic changes to DOE since its founding in 1977. For the next five years, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will stand up 60 new DOE programs, including 16 demonstration and 32 deployment programs, and expands funding for 12 existing Research, Development, Demonstration, and Deployment (RDD&D) programs.
DOE looks forward to being a partner for states, communities, and industry as we move the U.S. economy towards a clean energy, lower carbon emissions future by strengthening the nation’s outdated energy infrastructure.
So many before tried and failed to accomplish such significant investments in our families, in our communities and in our future.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal will create a generation of good-paying union jobs, build better roads and bridges, ports and airports, broadband for all and electricity transmission to combat the climate crisis. Every state will benefit; every American can be proud.
Delivering Clean Energy, Good-Paying Jobs and Lowering Costs for America
Learn how the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will help DOE deliver real results by:
- Investing in American manufacturing and workers.
- Expanding access to energy efficiency and clean energy for families, communities, and businesses.
- Delivering reliable, clean, and affordable power to more Americans.
- Building the technologies of tomorrow through clean energy demonstrations.
Real Impact for Real People
Investing in America’s workers means investing in America’s future. When combined with the Build Back Better Act, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will add an average of 1.5 million jobs per year, over the course of the decade. These good-paying clean energy jobs will be spread across every pocket of the country, and the vast majority will not require a college degree.
