Who We Are
OCED accelerates clean energy technologies from the lab to market and fills a critical innovation gap on the path to 100% clean electricity by 2035 and net-zero emissions by 2050.
To deliver clean energy demonstration projects at scale in partnership with the private sector to accelerate deployment, market adoption, and the equitable transition to a decarbonized energy system.
OCED SUPPORTS SECRETARY OF ENERGY GOALS FOR A ROBUST CLEAN ENERGY ECONOMY:
- Clean Energy Deployment and Emissions Reductions: Deliver clean energy demonstration projects to enable 100% clean electricity by 2035 and net zero emissions by 2050 through an equitable energy transition.
- Justice and Equity: Support the Justice40 Initiative, with the goal that 40% of the overall benefits of certain federal investments—including those in climate change, clean energy, and workforce development and training—flow to underserved and overburdened communities. Find out more on OCED’s Energy and Justice page.
- Quality Job Creation: Help place Americans in skilled trades, engineering, and construction to build a new clean energy infrastructure and economy, while making sure that every American worker and community can benefit from—and see their future in—clean energy solutions.
- Private Sector Uptake of Clean Energy Technologies: Unlock and scale the trillion-dollar clean energy follow on investment from the private sector and other sources of capital.
