 The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is committed to advancing clean energy technologies and transitioning the United States to a clean energy economy to enhance economic growth, energy independence, and the health and well-being of the American people.

The federal government is making unprecedented investments in our renewable energy future through the Inflation Reduction Act and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. EERE funds research and development to drive down the costs of clean energy and improve energy efficiency.

Transitioning the nation to 100% clean energy comes with challenges and opportunities. EERE is working with federal partners, labs, state, local, and tribal governments, nonprofit and community organizations, small businesses and corporations, industry, academia, and utilities to address challenges and opportunities.
