The opportunity for U.S. global leadership on clean energy is enormous. This report lays out the myriad challenges and opportunities facing the energy supply chain along with key strategies to secure America’s position as a clean energy superpower in the years and decades to come.
This supply chain review identified a range of risks and vulnerabilities that vary by technology and will require a sweeping set of diverse policy actions. In addition,DOE identified common threats, risks, and vulnerabilities across all selected technologies. These common risks and vulnerabilities are grouped into seven main opportunities for action: 1)increase raw material availability, 2) expand domestic manufacturing capabilities, 3) support formation of and invest in diverse, secure, and socially responsible foreign supply chains, 4) increase the adoption and deployment of clean energy, 5) improve end-of-life energy-related waste management, 6) attract and support a skilled workforce for the clean energy transition, and 7) enhance supply chain knowledge and decision-making. Together, they create the “Strategy to Secure the Clean Energy Transition” that DOE will work with other Federal agencies to implement.
