Breakthrough Energy Urges Congress to Fund Clean Energy Innovation

Congress is currently determining next year’s federal budget. To create American jobs, support U.S. global competitiveness, enhance energy security, and reduce U.S. emissions, it is imperative that Congress set aside dedicated funding for clean energy innovation.

As the Appropriations Committees in Congress considers federal funding levels, Breakthrough Energy sent leaders a letter urging them to robustly fund key innovation programs for emerging clean energy technologies that will spur solutions in hard-to-abate sectors, modernize our grid, and support researchers, entrepreneurs, and small businesses.
