Washington, D.C. – In response to the U.S. Department of Energy’s establishment of the Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Senior Director of Government Affairs Matthew Davis:

“We applaud President Biden, Secretary Granholm, and the entire Biden-Harris administration for establishing an office focused on clean energy innovation and driving down air and climate pollution to reach science-based goals of 100% clean electricity by 2035 and net zero climate pollution economy-wide by 2050. The establishment of this office is an important piece of the administration’s whole-of-government approach to climate action and it must be paired with the strong legislative action in the Build Back Better Act to stave off the worst of the climate crisis. It’s imperative for Congress to swiftly pass the Build Back Better Act to deliver clean energy, jobs and justice for all of our communities.”
