The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is a long-term investment in America’s competitiveness—helping to rebuild the country’s roads and bridges, expand access to clean drinking water, tackle the climate crisis and advance environmental justice by building a more resilient future and investing in communities that have too often been left behind.
This once-in-a-generation investment will help to deliver more clean energy, create new, good-paying jobs and lower costs for American families and workers by guiding the Nation towards a 100% carbon pollution-free electricity sector by 2035 and net-zero economy by 2050.
The investment is also historic for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), as it represents the most dramatic changes to DOE since its founding in 1977. For the next five years, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will stand up 60 new DOE programs, including 16 demonstration and 32 deployment programs, and expands funding for 12 existing Research, Development, Demonstration, and Deployment (RDD&D) programs.
DOE looks forward to being a partner for states, communities, and industry as we move the U.S. economy towards a clean energy, lower carbon emissions future by strengthening the nation’s outdated energy infrastructure. READ MORE from the White House:
