    SINEMA-BACKED BIPARTISAN RESOLUTION CELEBRATES NATIONAL CLEAN ENERGY WEEK


    October 4, 2022 - States News Service

     

      The following information was released by Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema:

      Bipartisan Senate resolution designates week of September 26 as "National Clean Energy Week"

      WASHINGTON Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema cosponsored a bipartisan Senate resolution celebrating the nation's advancements in clean energy technology by designating the week of September 26 as "National Clean Energy Week."

      The resolution builds on recent, historic investments such as Sinema's bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs law and the Sinema-shaped Inflation Reduction law which will power Arizona's clean energy future.

      "We're celebrating investments in green technology, electric vehicles, and emissions reduction secured in our Infrastructure Investment and Jobs law and the Inflation Reduction law, which will further strengthen Arizona's leadership in clean energy," said Sinema, co-author and lead negotiator of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs law.

      Sinema's Infrastructure Investment and Jobs law makes one of the largest investments in clean energy transmission and electric vehicle infrastructure in U.S. history, electrifying thousands of school and transit buses across the country, bolstering critical materials supply chains, improving energy efficiency, and building out a national network of electric vehicle charging infrastructure.

      Additionally, Sinema's bipartisan infrastructure law provides $65 billion to strengthen electricity grids around the country and promote resilience of power infrastructure including creating a new Grid Development Authority to build a clean energy 21st century electric grid, and substantial investments in clean energy sources like hydrogen, nuclear, and carbon capture, utilization, and storage.

      The Inflation Reduction law allocates $370 billion to incentivize the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by investing in clean and renewable energy production, as well as billions in energy efficiency, clean manufacturing, and renewable energy generation, storage, and transmission.

      Sinema's bipartisan resolution underscores the benefits of clean energy to the environment and American energy users, and celebrates the more than 7.8 million Americans employed by the energy and energy efficiency sectors.
