Happy Earth Day! We’re celebrating Earth Day and sharing how the Department of Energy is a champion for Earth and its incredible resources. Earth is what gives us life and its resources power our daily activities, jobs, travel, and fun. Conserving our resources and preserving our environment now is essential to investing in our planet and ensuring future generations can enjoy all it has to offer.  

The Department of Energy is committed to combating the climate crisis and investing the necessary funds, time, and research into powering the clean energy transition. President Biden’s goal of achieving a 100% clean energy economy and net-zero emissions by 2050 is a cornerstone of the Administration’s and the Department’s work. Our work to develop and refine clean energy technology, including nuclear power and other renewable energy sources, are bringing this goal closer to reality.

Check out our blog to see a retrospective of the past year as the Department of Energy has been investing in our planet.
