    Granholm: American Jobs Plan will prioritize communities struggling with loss of coal, oil and gas jobs

    Emma Penrod, April 9, 2021 (Utility Dive)

    “…[The federal government will] ensure new clean energy jobs will benefit communities suffering from the loss of conventional coal, oil or gas jobs, U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm said…[Michigan's economic pivot to producing electric vehicles and batteries during her tenure as governor showed] investment in clean energy infrastructure could do the same for other U.S. communities…

    The jobs plan calls for an immediate $50 million investment in transportation projects, the expansion of high-speed wireless service to 98% of the nation's residents, and the creation of a $10 billion National Infrastructure Bank to fund additional public works as needed…[Granholm said] it is important that 40% of the benefits of the American Jobs Plan go to communities currently being left behind or that have historically borne the heath consequences of fossil energy generation…

    The American Jobs Act will target coal, oil and natural gas producing areas with projects to reduce emissions and to deploy carbon capture and hydrogen demonstration projects…The Biden administration could, through its federal purchasing power, mandate certain employment targets or job training requirements…The DOE's loan office could also set similar standards…[and] the Biden administration could prioritize particular census tracts for competitive grants and tax credits…” click here for more
