Department of Energy
- In August 2023, DOE’s Grid Deployment Office (GDO) released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) to establish the Coordinate Interagency Transmission Authorization and Permits (CITAP) Program to accelerate Federal environmental review and permitting processes for qualifying onshore electric transmission facilities. The CITAP Program aims to establish a better coordinated, more streamlined process that would set deadlines for Federal authorizations and permits for electric transmission on a two-year timeline and ensure engagement with Tribes, local communities, and other stakeholders. The Grid Deployment Office (GDO) would administer the CITAP program with DOE serving as the lead agency for Federal transmission permitting, authority granted under the Energy Policy Act of 2005, Section 216(h) and implemented in a May 2023 interagency Memorandum of Understanding. The proposed program would require developers to participate in the Integrated Interagency Preapplication (IIP) Process, which is intended to increase efficiency and would provide a uniform mechanism for developers to identify siting constraints and opportunities and gather information that would serve as inputs, as appropriate, into Federal permitting agencies’ authorization decisions and DOE’s single environmental review document. All participating transmission developers would be required to submit a public engagement plan during the IIP Process that describes how they would work with Tribes, local communities, and other stakeholders throughout the life of the project. GDO released a draft Standard Schedule with a projected timeline for projects under this proposed rule. The comment period will be open for 45 days following the NOPR publication in the Federal Register. For more information, please see the Press Release; CITAP Program Overview and NOPR.
- On July 5, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Loans Program Office (LPO) announced updated program guidance for the Title 17 Clean Energy Financing Program. This program provides $300 billion in loan guarantees for clean energy and decarbonization projects. These recent updates include program eligibility, application requirements, and evaluation criteria. The updated guidance also reflects new authorities for this program authorized by the IIJA and IRA. For more information, see the announcement.
- On June 27, the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) released a 2030 National Charging Network study, which is a semiannual study that estimates the number, type, and location of electric vehicle (EV) chargers that are needed to meet public demand across the country. This study was produced as a joint effort between the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation (Joint Office) and the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Vehicle Technologies Office. This study assessed charging infrastructure needs for light-duty EVs, and also took into account local variation in EV adoption, climate, travel patterns, housing, and charging preferences. This study estimates that the U.S. will need to have 1.2 million charges by 2030 in order to meet demand. For more information, see the full report or the summary of materials.
- On June 14, David Crane was officially sworn in by U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm to become the Under Secretary for Infrastructure. During David’s tenure as OCED Director, he led the design and implementation of more than $25 billion for demonstration projects from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act.
- On June 5, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy released the U.S. National Clean Hydrogen Strategy and Roadmap, a comprehensive framework intended to accelerate the production, processing, delivery, storage, and use of clean hydrogen—a versatile and flexible energy carrier that can be produced with low or zero carbon emissions. The Strategy and Roadmap provides a snapshot of hydrogen production, transport, storage, and use in the United States today and a vision for how hydrogen can contribute to national decarbonization goals across multiple sectors in the future. It examines future demand scenarios — with strategic opportunities for the domestic production of 10 million metric tonnes (MMT) of clean hydrogen annually by 2030, 20 MMT annually by 2040, and 50 MMT annually by 2050. It also complements a historic $9.5 billion investment for clean hydrogen through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, ongoing research and development efforts across the federal government, as well as strong policy incentives — including a new production tax credit for clean hydrogen — in the Inflation Reduction Act. See press release and roadmap here.
- On May 8, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Grid Deployment Office (GDO) issued a Notice of Intent (NOI) and Request for Information (RFI) to inform the designation of National Interest Electric Transmission Corridors (NIETCs). NIETCs are geographic areas where electricity limitations, congestion, or capacity constraints are adversely affecting electricity consumers and communities. Designation of a NIETC unlocks critical federal investment and regulatory and permitting tools to spur urgent transmission investments needed in these geographic areas to improve reliability and resilience and reduce consumer costs. In the NOI, DOE provides further information on its anticipated approach to designating NIETCs. The RFI seeks stakeholder feedback to improve the NIETC designation process to more accurately pinpoint areas experiencing the greatest transmission need and with the greatest potential for immediate transmission deployment. A NIETC designation can unlock federal financing tools, specifically public-private partnerships through the $2.5 billion Transmission Facilitation Program under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the $2 billion Transmission Facility Financing Loan Program under the Inflation Reduction Act. For more information, see the press release.
- On March 29, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced the release of its Offshore Wind Energy Strategy, a comprehensive summary of the Department’s efforts to meet President Biden’s goal to deploy 30 gigawatts (GW) of offshore wind energy by 2030 and set the nation on a pathway to 110 GW or more by 2050. Deploying 30 GW of offshore wind would provide enough power for 10 million homes, support 77,000 jobs, and spur $12 billion per year in direct private investment, according to DOE. The Department-wide strategy outlines how DOE will support the Administration’s whole-of-government approach to accelerate the deployment of offshore wind in support of achieving a carbon-free electricity sector by 2035. For more information, see the press release and the strategy.
- The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has extended the deadline for the 40101d Formula Grant program to May 31, 2023. The intent of these changes is to provide more flexibility on application submittal, better align the 40101d deadline with the deadline for cost match funding available from the US Treasury for Tribes, and allow more time for applicants (primarily the Tribes) to prepare their applications. The extension will not affect anyone who has already applied, and it won’t delay making awards. DOE will continue to process applications as they are received and make awards on a rolling basis. Applicants are advised to submit their applications as soon as they are ready to do so.
- The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Grid Deployment Office (GDO) has released a draft of the National Transmission Needs Study for public comment and feedback. The Needs Study provides information about present and anticipated future capacity constraints and congestion on the nation’s electric transmission grid and serves as DOE’s triennial state of the grid report. Findings of the Needs Study will provide public insight into areas of the power grid that would benefit from increased transmission capacity. Public comments and questions about the draft Needs Study can be submitted by emailing NeedsStudy.Comments@hq.doe.gov. Public comments must be submitted as an email attachment in PDF format. All public comments are due 45 days from publication of the Needs Study notification in the Federal Register. A public webinar will be held on March 3, 2023, from 1:30–2:45pm ET. Registration is required. GDO anticipates releasing the final Needs Study in Summer 2023.
- The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced guidance so that state, territory, local, and Tribal governments can begin applying for funding through the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) program and issued a Request for Information (RFI) for new Home Energy Rebate Programs.

Environmental Protection Agency
- On May 10, 2023, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed new carbon pollution standards for coal and natural gas-fired power plants intended to protect public health, reduce harmful pollutants, and deliver up to potentially $85 billion in climate and public health benefits over the next two decades. The proposal for coal and new natural gas power plants would avoid up to 617 million metric tons of total carbon dioxide (CO2) through 2042, which is equivalent to reducing the annual emissions of 137 million passenger vehicles, roughly half the cars in the United States. The proposals would also result in cutting tens of thousands of tons of particulate matter (PM2.5), sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxide, harmful air pollutants that are known to endanger people’s health. EPA will host webinars on the proposed standards on June 6 and June 7. EPA will take comment on these proposals for 60 days after publication in the Federal Register. For more information, see the press release and the rules summary.
- On April 12, 2023, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced new proposed federal vehicle emissions standards intended to accelerate the ongoing transition to a clean vehicle future. Together, these proposals would avoid nearly 10 billion tons of CO2 emissions, equivalent to more than twice the total U.S. CO2 emissions in 2022, while saving thousands of dollars over the lives of the vehicles meeting these new standards and reduce America’s reliance on approximately 20 billion barrels of oil imports. The agency projected that under its proposal, two out of every three new cars and trucks sold in 2032 will be electric — more than 10 times the current national sales rate. The rules also come with benefits, including fuel savings and avoided climate emissions, that surpass the costs by over $1 trillion, according to EPA. The first and most sweeping rule, Reg. 2060-AV49, covers light-duty cars and trucks as well as medium-duty vehicles, a class that includes larger SUVs and passenger vans. Light-duty vehicles would have to achieve a fleet average of 82 grams of carbon dioxide per mile in 2032, which is down roughly half from the 161 grams required in 2026 under current regulations. A second proposed rule, Reg. 2060-AV50, covering heavy-duty vehicles like tractor-trailers and vocational vehicles would avoid 1.8 billion tons of carbon dioxide through 2055, according to EPA; heavy-duty vehicles make up a quarter of transportation sector emissions. The light-duty proposal will be open for 60 days of public comment and the heavy-duty proposal for 50 days of comment once published in the Federal Register. For more information, see the press release, Reg. 2060-AV49, or Reg. 2060-AV50.
- On April 5, 2023, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed to strengthen and update the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) for coal-fired power plants, intended to achieve important hazardous air pollutant emissions reductions and ensure that standards reflect the latest advancements in pollution control technologies. This proposed rule, the most significant update since MATS was first issued in February 2012, fulfills EPA’s responsibility under the Clean Air Act to periodically review emission standards. MATS requires significant reductions of mercury, acid gases, and other harmful pollutants from coal and oil-fired electric generating units. After reexamining the previous administration’s required review of MATS, EPA is proposing more stringent emissions limits and additional, cost-reasonable monitoring and control methods to further reduce harmful pollution from these sources, resulting in cleaner air for surrounding communities. EPA will accept public comment on the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for 60 days after publication in the Federal Register. For more information, see the press release or the NPRM.
