A Roadmap to 100% Clean Electricity by 2035: August 2021 Update

How Federal Lawmakers Can Unlock Power Sector Decarbonization This Year with a Clean Electricity Performance Program and Complementary Investments

Get your copy of the updated report now.

NEW: An independent analysis shows how Congress can create nearly 8 million jobs and $1 trillion in economic growth over the next decade by passing a Clean Electricity Performance Program (CEPP).  You can click here to read our memo with NRDC that explains the findings.

President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris campaigned and won on a bold platform for confronting the climate crisis and building a clean energy economic recovery—including a clean energy standard to achieve 100% clean electricity by  2035. Now, Senate Democrats have included a Clean Electricity Performance Program (CEPP), an investment program designed to achieve the goals of President Biden’s proposed clean electricity standard, in their $3.5 trillion budget resolution, along with complementary investments that will help decarbonize the power sector.

In this updated report, we explain why action this year is essential for 100% clean electricity, and how a CEPP and complementary investments (all of which fit with Senate budget reconciliation rules) will unlock the rapid decarbonization we need.

“The CEPP is the most powerful tool in our toolbox to reduce America’s carbon pollution and help us avoid the worst impacts of the climate crisis."

The Clean Electricity Performance Program is the most powerful tool in our toolbox to reduce America’s carbon pollution and help us avoid the worst impacts of the climate crisis—and the program will be a powerful driver to eliminate deadly air pollution, create millions of new clean energy jobs, and put money back in consumers’ pockets by delivering cheaper, cleaner energy. Now it’s up to President Biden and Congressional Democrats to get it across the finish line.
