Support Energy Innovation in FY2020
April 1, 2019 | Lynn Abramson, President, Clean Energy Business Network
The CEBN is circulating a letter to support robust funding for critical RD&D programs in DOE for the FY2020 Appropriations Cycle. These programs have demonstrated a successful track record of helping to bring transformational clean energy technologies to market.
The Administration’s budget request for fiscal year 2020—which begins Oct. 1, 2019—proposes an 11 percent cut to the Department of Energy’s total budget. It also proposes deep cuts or even elimination of a number of critical clean energy programs, such as DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E). Speak up and support robust funding for clean energy R&D here.
ICYMI: The CEBN recently hosted 14 members in Washington to speak to members of Congress about DOE funding, and CEBN’s President Lynn Abramson discussed the importance of investing in energy innovation in a Morning Consult Op-Ed.
