ACORE Statement on Biden Administration’s FY 2022 Discretionary Request

Statement From Gregory Wetstone, President and CEO of the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE):

“Today’s budget request from the Biden administration demonstrates a continued whole-of-government approach to tackling the climate crisis and begins to restore the executive branch capacity necessary to support the renewable energy industry’s drive to decarbonize the power sector by 2035. The priority investments at the Department of Energy will catalyze important deployment and R&D at the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and other national labs – and the $1 billion commitment to the Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) and the proposed Advanced Research Projects Agency – Climate (ARPA-C) has the potential to accelerate tomorrow’s clean energy innovations. We look forward to working with the Biden administration and Congress to advance these priorities as part of the appropriations process this year.”
