ACORE Statement on Climate Day Executive Actions

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

“Today’s Executive Actions provide welcome detail on the “whole-of-government” approach the Biden Administration is taking to tackle the climate crisis. As the nation’s largest energy consumer, the federal government’s procurement priorities have a critical role to play in meeting the Administration’s goal of decarbonizing the power sector by 2035. The Department of Interior has many tools it can deploy to double offshore wind generation by 2030, and the President’s clarion call for greater transmission investment is an essential component of providing reliable and affordable renewable energy to every American. With smart policies in place, the renewable sector can build America’s clean energy future and help power our nation’s economic recovery.”
