U.S. Department of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm commented on the passing of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 in the House of Representatives.
She called it the "most essential piece of President Biden's strategy for building a secure clean energy economy," in an Aug. 12 news release.
"The law will unleash American ingenuity to deploy clean energy at a pace and scale that positions us to cut carbon pollution in half by 2030," she said in the release. "It will lower the costs of electric vehicles, rooftop solar panels and energy-efficient home appliances for American families, unlocking hundreds of dollars in savings each year. It makes historic investments to protect and improve land, water, air and health in underserved communities nationwide, advancing President Biden’s Justice40 initiative. And it will give our National Laboratories the resources to keep the United States on the forefront of scientific discovery."
According to the release, she said Biden is putting the "nation on track to lead the global clean energy market" with the passing of the Inflation Reduction Act, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the CHIPS and Science Act.
"If we succeed, the world will take on climate change using technologies dreamt up by American innovators, built with American materials, and assembled by American workers," Granholm said in the release. "Of course, more than simply passing laws, success depends on effective implementation. That means the Department of Energy’s work is just beginning. I am confident that as the American people see and feel the benefits from our efforts to transform America’s economy, lower costs, create jobs and strengthen our national security, we will build momentum and broaden support for further action. The future is bright — and it will be clean."
