New DOE organizational structure hopes to increase efficiency of clean energy investments

March 03, 2022

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently announced a new organizational structure in response to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the Energy Act of 2020. The new organizational structure intends to facilitate the implementation of clean energy investments from these new laws more efficiently and introduces two new leadership positions: the undersecretary for infrastructure and the undersecretary for science and innovation. The undersecretary for infrastructure will also lead three new offices: the Grid Infrastructure Office, the State and Community Energy Program, and the Office of Manufacturing and Energy Supply Chains.

Additionally, a new Clean Energy Corps is currently hiring industry experts to research and develop solutions to climate change. DOE expects these changes to help achieve its goals for carbon-free electricity by 2035 and a net zero economy by 2050 while also providing high-paying jobs in the clean energy sector.
