The Biden administration today announced a series of steps agencies are taking to accelerate our transition to clean energy. These include investments and actions across multiple federal agencies to upgrade our transmission system and accelerate deployment of renewable energy projects that benefit communities. 

The following is a statement from Jessica Ennis, legislative director for Climate and Energy: 

“The Biden administration recognizes that we need a whole of government approach to solve the climate crisis and build a clean energy economy. We are glad to see federal agencies working together to accelerate our transition to clean energy. 

“Now Congress must do its part by passing the Build Back Better Act — the largest investment in climate and environmental justice in U.S. history. We urge the Senate to move quickly to make the transformative investments we need to meet the moment.”
