ESA Requests Congress Provide FY22 Appropriations Allocation to Energy and Water Development Bill to Support Energy Innovation
Today, ESA joined Third Way and other coalition partners in a request to Congress to provide an FY22 appropriations allocation to the Energy and Water Development bill that enables a multi-billion dollar increase for vital research, development, demonstration, and commercial deployment activities across all Science and Energy program areas of the Department of Energy (DOE). Robust, multi-year efforts by DOE have established U.S. leadership in fields from nuclear to bioenergy, wind, solar, and energy storage to energy efficiency deployment, launching massive domestic industries that have employed millions of workers in the years since. We stress that this level of support would ensure America’s energy industries and workers have a leg up on the competition, and a chance to bring home the rewards of surging global markets for clean energy technologies.
