The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) is a historic, once-in-a-generation opportunity to address climate change and generate economic growth by transforming the nation’s energy infrastructure.
With our word-class facilities and expertise spanning carbon management, environmental sustainability, and technology development to ensure affordable, abundant and reliable energy, NETL has important contributions to make in support of BIL investments.
In this issue of NETL Edge, we discuss our Lab’s contributions toward meeting clean energy goals calling for a net-zero carbon emission electricity sector by 2035 and economy-wide net-zero emissions by 2050. We also outline how our expertise and capabilities are being brought to bear on provisions of the BIL. For example:
At NETL, we’re working hard to ensuring affordable, abundant and reliable energy that drives a robust economy and national security, as we develop technologies to manage carbon across the full life cycle and enable environmental sustainability for all Americans.
I invite you to read more about these efforts in this issue of NETL Edge. https://go.usa.gov/xutvy
