There is no greater challenge facing our nation and our planet than the climate crisis. That’s why President Biden has laid out the boldest climate agenda in our nation’s history—one that will spur an equitable clean energy economy and cement America on a path to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
DOE has long been the nation’s powerhouse for scientific and innovative solutions to the challenges we face, including the climate emergency. Our program offices and 17 National Laboratories are working every single day to research, develop, and deploy the clean energy technologies of the future, including battery storage, renewable power, electric vehicles, carbon capture, and resilient grid infrastructure. DOE will also use its expansive loan authority to invest in American companies at the cutting edge of clean energy technology and manufacturing, and its regulatory authority to innovate in advanced building technologies, energy efficient appliances, and more.
DOE will also coordinate across the federal government to deliver on the Administration’s climate priorities— procuring carbon pollution-free electricity and leveraging DOE’s unparalleled scientific strength to put forth the best available research and science to combat the climate crisis.
