CEBN Outreach on FY 2020 Appropriations
Updated July 22, 2019: The Administration’s budget request for fiscal year 2020—which begins Oct. 1, 2019—proposed an 11% cut to Energy Department funding and significant reductions or elimination of a number of clean energy programs, such as Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), ENERGY STAR, the CHP Partnership Program, and CHP Technical Assistance Program (CHP TAP).
On June 19, 2019, the House passed a package of funding bills that included the Energy and Water title. The Senate has yet to pass its own version of a bill. See Congress.gov for the latest on the FY 2020 Appropriations process.
The table below compares funding levels for federal clean energy-related programs from 2019 to the House-passed FY2020 bill.
