In One Week: 2022 Sustainable Energy in America Factbook Release

Energy Industry Leaders to Highlight Dramatic Progress of the U.S. Energy Transition
at March 3 Embargoed Press Briefing

Please join the Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE) and BloombergNEF (BNEF) on Thursday, March 3, 2022 at 10:00 – 11:00 am ET for an embargoed press briefing on the release of the tenth annual edition of the Sustainable Energy in America Factbook.  

The briefing provides an opportunity to get the facts about the critical role new energy technologies played in the U.S. economy in 2021 and ask questions of sustainable energy industry leaders. With its market-oriented perspective, the Factbook will help drive the energy policy conversation in the near term as reporters and policymakers assess the Intergovernmental Panel (IPCC) on Climate Change’s Sixth Assessment Report that will be released on February 28, President Biden’s State of the Union Address on March 1 and the release of the Energy Information Administration (EIA)’s Annual Energy Outlook on March 3. Over the longer term, the Factbook is an invaluable resource for coverage of energy, climate and environmental policy and business.

All content presented at the press briefing will be under embargo until March 3 at 3:00pm ET to enable inclusion of Factbook information in stories on the EIA’s Annual Energy Outlook released on that day. Participation in this briefing is by invitation-only. All content presented at the press briefing will be under embargo until March 4 at 12:01 am ET. Participation in this briefing is by invitation-only.  To request an invitation to the media briefing, contact Chloe Ashford at [email protected] or  202.785.0507 ext. 1512.

Each year, the Factbook provides comprehensive information and analysis on major sustainable energy facts and trends from the previous year. The Factbook includes energy statistics on market growth and contraction, and analysis of trends in the energy efficiency, natural gas, renewable energy and other clean energy segments. 

The 2022 Factbook will look back on year-on-year dynamics, including how the second year of the pandemic and first year of the Biden Administration impacted business conditions, U.S. energy markets and the overall energy transition. The press event will cover several core benchmarks included in the report – deployment, technology innovation, policy, emissions, and jobs. 

At this invitation-only briefing, energy industry leaders will talk about how their businesses and the U.S. economy adjusted to changing circumstances and answer questions about the report and its findings.
