ACORE Statement on the American Energy Innovation Act

Statement from Gregory Wetstone, President and CEO of the American Council on Renewable Energy 

“ACORE supports initiatives like the Better Energy Storage Technology (BEST) Act. However all should understand that federal investment in future innovation, while constructive, is not nearly a sufficient response to the climate crisis. In 2020, any energy bill should include provisions to accelerate near-term renewable energy deployment. More specifically, ACORE calls on Congress to include critical clean energy tax incentives in this package.”
