Posted by Monique Hanis on Nov 17, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C., Nov. 17, 2020 — Today national business group Advanced Energy Economy released this statement as a broad range of clean energy groups delivered a letter to leaders of the U.S. Congress calling for swift action to support deployment of advanced energy technologies and transportation electrification in must-pass legislation before yearend.

"With a few simple tweaks, Congress can make existing policies that support advanced energy more flexible and more effective at a time when the economy needs a boost," said Nat Kreamer, CEO at national business group Advanced Energy Economy. "Specifically, policymakers should shift existing tax credits for advanced energy to direct pay and extend deadlines for eligibility in light of supply chain and construction disruptions due to COVID. This is a no-lose proposition for spurring our nation's economic recovery, tapping fast-growing jobs opportunities and shifting to cleaner, more affordable energy resources."
