DOE releases first comprehensive plan to ensure security and increase our energy independence
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) yesterday released America’s first comprehensive plan to ensure security and increase our energy independence.
Titled “America’s Strategy to Secure the Supply Chain for a Robust Clean Energy Transition,” the report lays out dozens of critical strategies to build a secure, resilient, and diverse domestic energy sector industrial base that will establish America’s role as a global leader in clean energy manufacturing and innovation. In addition to spurring job creation and economic growth, DOE says the strategies to invest in and strengthen America’s supply chains will help combat inflation and reduce costs for American families and businesses by protecting against global supply chain disruptions and backlogs that drive up prices.
The report was produced in response to President Biden’s Executive Order 14017, America’s Supply Chains, and is supported by 13 deep-dive supply chain assessments across the energy sector—ranging from solar energy to semiconductors to cybersecurity. As the Federal government begins to implement the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which provides $62 billion in energy sector funding, DOE’s report summarizes how the U.S. can capture the economic opportunity inherent in the energy sector transition and build a world-class American energy manufacturing base and workforce.
