The Biden administration’s goal to fully decarbonize the U.S. economy further drives various activities that will likely pose supportive policies and major clean energy projects. Several agencies are currently working together to build up offshore wind that can offer high-quality jobs while delivering affordable and carbon pollution-free electricity across the country. These activities also spur interest in clean energy technology improvements and investments.
