CRES Forum: Reigniting the clean energy economy: Policy options and opportunities

About this Event

The clean energy economy roared into 2020 continuing over a decade of rapid job growth, but like many other industries has been shaken by COVID-19. Some projects have been able to continue, but many more have been delayed and there are many questions around the calculus for future projects. This CRES Forum discussion will help policymakers and professionals better understand the clean energy impacts, how actions by Congress to date have helped, and what effective policy should look like as Congress considers additional measures to stabilize the economy, secure jobs, and stimulate growth.

We will discuss principled approaches to making fiscally responsible investments in clean energy infrastructure and reducing barriers to executing and completing clean energy projects.
