US White House backs aggressive power grid emissions cuts: Report

The White House hopes to capitalise on growing support from United States utilities, unions and green groups for a national clean energy mandate by backing efforts to require the US power grid to get 80 percent of its power from emissions-free sources by 2030, a senior administration official tells the Reuters news agency.

A 2030 target would be a milestone on the way to achieving US President Joe Biden’s stated ambition of net-zero carbon emissions in the grid by 2035. It could also potentially be passed without Republican support through a process called budget reconciliation.
