🌎 IMSPARK: A Pacific Future Powered by Clean Energy🌎

 

🌎 Imagine… A Pacific Future Powered by Clean Energy🌎

💡 Imagined Endstate: 

The Pacific region has successfully transitioned to a low-carbon economy, using renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, hydro, and geothermal to meet its growing energy needs.

U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations. (2024). Further additional continuing appropriations act 2024 text.

💥 What’s the Big Deal: 

The Further Additional Continuing Appropriations and Other Extensions Act, 2024, provides funding for various energy and water programs,  🌊 including $2.2 billion for the Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. 🌞This funding supports research, development, and deployment of clean energy technologies that can benefit the Pacific region, such as solar photovoltaics, wind turbines, 💨hydroelectric dams, and geothermal plants.🔥 These technologies can help the Pacific region reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, diversify its energy sources, lower its energy costs, and create new jobs and industries.
