Unlocking funding for climate action in the U.S. power sector

EU industrial decarbonisation power plant

Why do we need to decarbonize the power sector? 

 Nearly one-third of U.S. emissions come from the production of electricity. Natural gas and coal generate approximately 60% of electricity in the U.S. The U.S. targets a carbon pollution-free power sector by 2035. Reducing emissions from the power sector will require deployment of more clean, firm energy sources, zero carbon fuels in limited cases, and carbon reduction technologies. 

The resources below share information about available federal funding to help decarbonize the power sector, explain technology options to achieve decarbonization goals, and support the deployment of clean energy projects with helpful research, tools, and education materials.
