Under the Biden-Harris administration’s climate goals, renewable energy will power a carbon-free economy by 2050 – but to realize that vision, we need to accelerate our development and deployment of clean energy technologies.
To expand the U.S. energy portfolio and ensure our continued leadership as innovators in the race for clean energy solutions, we must maintain focus and investment in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) as a vital national priority.
Students and professionals from STEM fields are at the forefront of making a clean energy future a reality. An emerging generation of scientists, technicians, engineers, and mathematicians will take the reigns in combatting the climate crisis by advancing clean energy technologies and reimagining more sustainable ways of powering our modern society.
Back to school season is the perfect time to observe #STEMtember: a month-long celebration of the importance of STEM education in building a better future for all.
Over the course of the month, we will use our platforms to shine a light on the importance of STEM in within the energy efficiency and renewable energy arenas.
We will continue to promote diversity in STEM by highlighting some of our workforce development initiatives, including our collegiate competitions, and by celebrating our staff and their journeys within the STEM field.
Whether at home, through virtual learning, in the classroom, or on the job, STEM impacts you. Join us on social media for fun facts, experiments, virtual tours of National Labs, and spotlights of our staff working deep below us in geothermal mines or high up on wind turbines.
