Key Focus

  • And I'll go further by establishing low-carbon manufacturing standards for commonly used industrial processes in building construction like steel and cement production so that we reduce emissions 40% from the industrial sector by 2030 and become carbon neutral by 2045.
    If we work together to make smart investments in our clean energy future, we will grow our economy, improve our health, and reduce structural inequalities embedded in our existing fossil fuel system
  • We'll extend programs to provide grants in lieu of tax credits, establish refundable tax incentives to speed utilities,- deployment of existing smart grid and advanced transmission technologies, and work with utilities to increase on-bill investment in energy efficiency solutions, including by subsidizing those investments for low-income communities. And we'll implement community workforce and project-labor agreements to ensure that the jobs created by these investments are good, union jobs, with prevailing wages determined through collective bargaining.
    Expand interstate and regional coordination
  • My Green Apollo plan to invest $400 billion over ten years in clean energy R&D will spur innovation and help us to develop the technology we need to go the final mile. Critically, I will condition these R&D investments on any resulting manufacturing taking place right here in America, to create good middle-class jobs
  • We'll provide dedicated support for the four Power Marketing Administrations, the Tennessee Valley Authority, and the Appalachian Regional Commission to help them build publicly-owned clean energy assets and deploy clean power to help communities transition off fossil fuels. And we'll expand investments in smart energy storage solutions and cybersecurity for the grid.
    100% CLEAN VEHICLES
