Biden's Win Puts Clean Energy Center Stage
Senior Policy Advisor Beth Viola was quoted in a Law360 article discussing the outlook for clean energy under a Biden administration. She said that because many of Biden's energy and climate change plans will have to be implemented legislatively, he will have to generate bipartisan support before they can be realized.
"There's a lot of bipartisan support for carbon capture, for things like nuclear, energy storage, incentivizing new energy technologies and deployment for energy efficiency," she explained. "If he's going to spend a lot of resources making the case that we need to expand the tax incentives for renewable energy, then I think we're going to get some pushback from some Republicans. But if you expand it...and you include things like green hydrogen or hydrogen or carbon capture, you could definitely see some bipartisan support and agreement there."
