$10,487,106 DOLLARS RETURNED TO SAN DIEGANS

Congressman Scott Peters

Representing the 52nd District of California

Research, Development, Demonstration, & Deployment

Federal government programs such as ARPA-E and the SunShot Initiative run by DOE have successfully accelerated the global deployment of transformational energy technologies. ARPA-E makes major investments in technologies that are too early-stage for private investment, while programs like the SunShot Initiative will make solar energy technologies more efficient, reliable and affordable. The government needs to urgently support every stage of energy innovation from energy research, development, demonstration and deployment.
