The Hill: Why permitting reform really is key to our clean energy future
3 Mar 2023
The clean energy revolution is on our doorstep. The last few years have seen an unprecedented level of both public and private investment in clean energy, in the U.S. and abroad. From next-generation nuclear energy to battery storage technology, American innovation is paving the way for a cleaner future.
Yet, this future is at serious risk. A recent Princeton study found that more than 80 percent of the emissions reductions potential of the Inflation Reduction Act, for example, would be wasted if we didn’t make it easier to build the infrastructure necessary to expand clean energy. As climate activists are finding out, permitting reform is the lynchpin to unlocking our energy future.
