President Biden met with offshore wind industry executives Thursday after snubbing oil executives summoned to Washington to come up with “concrete solutions” to combat skyrocketing gas prices.
Mr. Biden, who has committed to fighting climate change by steering the U.S. away from fossil fuels and toward clean energy, is now battling skyrocketing prices at the pump which critics say is partly due to his policies.
The wind energy rendezvous, which included senior administration officials, labor leaders, and several East Coast governors, marked the White House’s launch of a new federal-state offshore wind partnership meant to “jumpstart the American offshore wind industry.”
“We’re about to build a better America,” said Mr. Biden, who was seated at the head of the table for the meeting in the Roosevelt Room at the White House.
They plan to deploy 30 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2030, enough power, The White House said, to power 10 million homes.
