By now, you’ve probably heard about the garage door ideas, which are really just some of the ideas Biden is putting forward to create a new era of government efficiency and productivity in the United States.
Biden is proposing an expansion of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Department of Natural Resources (DNR), to create an Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), and an Office for Energy and Climate Change (OECD).
He also wants to increase federal procurement of electric vehicle battery and electric vehicle batteries.
Biden’s proposal for EERE is similar to the proposals for the Office of Electricity, Conservation, and Security (EECS), which Biden has floated before.
Biden says that he will create an EERE Office that will “serve the national interest, foster innovation, and promote the economic prosperity of the United Sates.”
The DOE is responsible for the DOE’s national laboratories and the DOE-funded research that advances clean energy technology.
Biden proposes that the Office will be led by an “expert advisor to the President on the science and technology of energy and the environment.”
In addition to energy and environmental science, Biden is also proposing that EERE will be a “leading force in addressing the climate crisis.”
In short, Biden wants to create the new Office of the Energy Secretary (EES) to be tasked with managing the DOE, a position that will be created through the creation of a “Director of EERE and Director of EECS.”
The Director of Energy Policy, a key post for Biden, is to oversee the “development of policy and strategic plans for the energy and environment portfolio.”
The Office of EES will also “serVE the national interests, foster innovative ideas, and advance the economic well-being of the American people.”
The new office will also be tasked to “servey national interests and advance our economic prosperity.”
Biden has also proposed increasing federal procurement and hiring of electric vehicles.
The Energy Department has been working on a “Green Vehicle Initiative” to create “a green energy industry.”
In a recent op-ed for Politico, Energy Secretary Rick Perry said that the program was a “game changer” that would “change the face of electric cars and electric transportation.”
The Energy Policy Act of 2012 (EPA) required the DOE to develop a green vehicle strategy.
Under EPA, the Department must create a plan to “develop a plan for the transition of federal procurement from fossil fuels to energy sources.”
Under the Green Vehicle Initiative, the department will “develop green vehicles for federal government and industry and develop an interagency Green Vehicle Task Force that will support implementation of the plan.”
The Green Vehicle initiative, however, is not expected to be finalized until 2020, and the department is also working on an alternative green vehicle approach.
Energy Secretary Perry also recently said that he wants to bring “clean energy jobs” to the United State.
In an op-eds for Politico last year, Perry argued that the United Kingdom has a “green economy” with the lowest energy costs in the developed world, but also criticized President Obama’s Clean Power Plan, which the president had promised to “stop.”
Perry also argued that, despite President Obama having an “unprecedented” amount of energy on the table, he was not “making any moves toward a new green economy.”
Energy Secretary Scott Pruitt is also calling for “energy independence” for the United Nations.
In his op-dedits for Politico and the Washington Post last year he also claimed that “green energy is an important tool for reducing carbon emissions.”
He also stated that “climate change is real.”
However, Perry also wrote in the op-ad, “I am not the one who is going to be making the tough decisions about whether to use our energy resources or not.”
And Perry recently told CNN that he supports a new carbon tax.
“I think that’s an issue we need to talk about in the coming year,” Perry said.
“But I don’t think we’re going to have to have carbon taxes.
That’s not a bad idea.
It’s just not something that is the right thing to do.”
However the new office and the new energy policy, Perry’s views on energy are not a new one for the former governor.
Last year, he called for an “energy-efficient America” and “green jobs” for all Americans.
In response to these claims, the American Renewable Association (ARPA) released a report last year that stated that “[o]ne of the most significant things that can happen for energy is the end of coal,” but also “a shift to renewable energy.”
ARPA also argued, “Renewable energy sources like solar and wind will grow, and we will see the growth of nuclear power, geothermal power, and wind turbines.”
“Energy independence is essential to a clean economy,” Perry wrote.
