New Office on Clean Energy Innovation and Implementation established to coordinate historic initiative

September 22, 2022

The White House announced a new Office on Clean Energy Innovation and Implementation to coordinate the policymaking process for the energy and infrastructure provisions of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, legislation that has been called the single biggest climate investment in U.S. history. The executive order also established a National Climate Task Force that will be chaired by the head of the new office and consist of the heads of a number of agencies, offices and departments.

Among the goals of the act are revitalizing American manufacturing by investing in domestic clean energy supply chains. It is also expected to promote the construction of clean energy generation, storage, and transmission, achieve breakthroughs in clean energy and climate technologies, expand research, and accelerate clean energy innovation and deployment.
