Clean Energy Industries Voice Support for Federal Investments in Clean Energy, Sustainable Transport, and Energy Efficiency
May 12, 2023

Washington, D.C. – The Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE) and the Clean Energy Business Network (CEBN) sent a letter to Congressional leadership on Friday conveying strong support for the federal investments that have been made in clean energy, clean transportation, and energy efficiency through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). BCSE and CEBN encourage Congressional leadership and the Biden Administration to continue to support these programs as negotiations continue to address the nation’s debt limit and government spending.

“Now is not the time to turn away from progress,” said BCSE President Lisa Jacobson. “These federal investments in clean energy, clean transportation, and energy efficiency have already driven more than $150 billion in capital investment across the country. This momentum is driving us forward, increasing the competitiveness of the U.S. economy and creating good-paying U.S. jobs. We urge Congress to stand with the clean energy businesses that have found new growth through these key incentives.”

“Recent investments in clean energy through the tax code and other programs are enabling the private sector to drive historic levels of cleantech deployment that is boosting our nation’s energy security and generating jobs in communities across the U.S.,” said CEBN President Lynn Abramson. “It is critical that the private sector, especially the small business community, has the long-term certainty in the tax code and other IRA programs to ensure this progress continues.”
