Advancing the Energy Transition with Innovation and a Clean Energy Standard


Please join the Bipartisan Policy Center for a conversation with Reps. David McKinley (R-WV) and Kurt Schrader (D-OR) to discuss their legislative priorities and upcoming opportunities for spurring energy innovation and reducing power sector carbon emissions. Their Clean Energy Future through Innovation Act of 2020 established the first bipartisan proposal to accelerate the development and commercialization of clean energy technologies and establish clear and durable standards for their use in the electric power sector.

Following the discussion with the representatives, a panel of experts will provide their reactions and discuss their perspectives on how CES policies can advance the energy transition, support job creation and economic recovery, and strengthen America’s infrastructure.
