The partnership between @ENERGY & @NASA is out of this world⚡️🚀
So great to meet with@SenBillNelsonn to talk about DOE’s long history of powering space missions with nuclear technology. Together, there’s no limit to the good our agencies can do for our country and planet.�aJ
In the 1980s, it cost ~ $18 billion a year to clean up after climate disasters. In the last 5 years, we've spent a whopping $121 billion/yr to clean up after angry Mother Nature.
We simply cannot afford to stay on this trajectory. @SecGranholm explains: cnn.it/3nIqYPd
Why are #wind turbines so tall? How do #solar panels make energy? We'll answer these questions and more on “Ask a Question Day!” We're looking for questions from 4th-6th graders about renewable energy or #STEM topics. Tweet us their questions and look for answers on Sept. 28!
FACT: Nuclear energy plays a massive role in generating carbon-free electricity across the U.S.!
#DYK? These states get more than HALF of their total electricity generation from nuclear power. (via @GovNuclear)
Extreme weather keeps knocking out America's power. We've got a plan. Investing in infrastructure and resilience lets us #BuildBackBetter at the speed and scale we need. @SecGranholm lays out the details in her new op-ed: cnn.it/3nIqYPd
In celebration of Constitution Day & Citizenship Day we will help welcome 21,000 #NewUSCitizens in 335 naturalization ceremonies across the country between Sept 17 & 23. Learn more: uscis.gov/newsroom/news-…
Our power systems weren't built to withstand extreme weather events. Without major investments to reinforce, modernize & clean our grid, the question will not be whether it fails, but when.
We have an opportunity to #BuildBackBetter. We can’t let it slip.
By 2030, the clean energy sector will be a ~$23 trillion global market for all technologies and products that will reduce carbon pollution.
Bottom line: the future is ours to win. Let's #BuildBackBetter. Let's get this done.
This past summer, we welcomed 14 interns as part of our OTT Entrepreneurship Program! Students were paired w/ technologies & mentors from @ENERGY’s #NationalLabs to develop strategies for commercialization. Learn more about our talented group here:
