“The direct investment Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and other business leaders are making in companies developing innovative and carbon-free technologies will deliver reliable, affordable, clean energy to consumers. This isn’t just the right thing to do—it’s the smart thing to do, given the global energy market is $6 trillion and growing. I applaud their continued leadership, in partnership with the Department of Energy, to invest in innovative solutions to today’s climate challenges.”
