  • Federal investments in clean energy and climate innovation remain essential to tackling the unprecedented challenges presented by climate change. Climate innovation is a powerful tool that can create jobs, increase energy reliability and resilience, improve thequality of life for all communities, and catalyze both progress and the game-changing breakthroughs that we’ll need to shift the U.S. economy to net-zero by 2050.
