Key takeaways from the linked article below:

The companies call on the Biden Administration to:

  1. Leverage organized wholesale electricity markets for grid decarbonization by improving existing wholesale markets and expanding wholesale markets to achieve least-cost, efficient clean energy deployment.
  2. Decarbonize the grid through swift federal government action to harmonize and update the current patchwork of clean energy policies.
  3. Support innovation to advance a resilient, affordable, clean energy system by substantially increasing federal funding for clean energy technology research, development and demonstration.

In a white paper, Google established that it is looking to create utility programs that enable broader access to affordable clean energy and develop new models where multiple users can share clean energy assets.

I'd also love to see federal agencies putting their money where their mouth is-- lower carbon procurement and seeking out where they can buy into local renewable generation
