In a moment of turmoil in global energy markets and an era of relentless climate disruption, clean energy innovation must remain a national priority for the United States. The Energy Act of 2020 and the bipartisan infrastructure bill in 2021 set the stage for a major expansion of federal investment. Now the Biden administration proposes to build on these achievements in fiscal year 2023 with a 32 percent government-wide increase in clean energy innovation appropriations compared to FY 2021 levels. The ball is now in Congress’s court to debate whether the administration’s proposal is appropriately sized and balanced.
