Interagency Working Group on Coal and Power Plant Communities and Economic Revitalization Report Welcome, but Work Remains

April 23, 2021

The Interagency Working Group on Coal and Power Plant Communities and Economic Revitalization today publicly released its first report to President Joe Biden laying out ways in which the administration can support the revitalization of communities impacted by energy transition. In response, the BlueGreen Alliance released the following statement from Executive Director Jason Walsh:

“We welcome this action by the Biden administration and urge them to keep momentum on this important issue. Too little has been done to support communities impacted by energy transition and we hope that the immediate action taken by the administration in forming this working group and drafting this report is indicative of the urgency with which they will continue to address this problem. We look forward to working with the administration to expand on these efforts and increase stakeholder engagement moving forward.”
