CRES Issue Priorities 

To measure successful climate action, we must look at global emissions. Thanks largely to cutting-edge innovation, investment to increase the U.S. carbon advantage, and a commitment to clean energy technologies, the United States leads the world in emissions reductions. But there is still work to be done. CRES’ mission is to engage as many U.S. policymakers and the public to embrace an all-of-the-above energy approach, which would strengthen America’s leadership, boost local economies, secure strong domestic supply chains, and protect our planet.  

Innovation

Continued innovation will not only develop the next generation of affordable technologies needed to rapidly reduce, capture, and store greenhouse gas emissions, but also continue to grow a clean energy economy that already supports millions of clean energy jobs across the United States.

Federal investment in research, development, and deployment can bring new, low-carbon technologies to the market in greater numbers and support America’s continued leadership in global emissions reductions.

The U.S. is a leader in developing all-of-the-above, innovative and efficient clean energy technologies that can drive global emissions reductions.

America’s world-class entrepreneurs, researchers and scientists are working to advance the development of alternative energy resources as part of an all-of-the-above portfolio and empower the United States to continue deploying clean energy technologies.

Demonstration projects test the effectiveness of innovative technologies in real world conditions at scale, often leveraging public-private partnerships to pave the way towards commercialization and widespread market adoption.

The United States' energy security has changed dramatically since U.S. imports peaked in 2007. As the U.S. continues to decarbonize and work towards net zero, many questions must be answered: At what pace and scale will the U.S. need to deploy clean energy technologies to achieve net zero emissions?
