As the Reinventing American Energy series comes to a close, we explore clean energy’s future when it comes to policy and the realities of the political landscape on these issues. As renewable energies have gone from alternative to the mainstream in America, that shift is extending to Washington, where Republicans and Democrats are starting to agree on the need for clean energy development. From job and economic growth to strengthening national security to reducing costs, some common ground is beginning to emerge in Congress, but as differences remain, how will policymakers go about implementing change?
Join POLITICO on Tuesday, September 10 for a deep-dive conversation on what’s ahead for clean energy in Congress and the priorities that are changing how Democrats and Republicans work on this issue.
