The C3 Take
  • With a new Biden administration, congressional Republicans will support policies and actions that drive the free-market and innovation.
  • Large mandates that are Green New Deal-like will not find traction in a House that has a slim Democrat majority and a Republican-led Senate.
  • Areas that both Republicans and Democrats could agree on may be “under the radar” but would be impactful for advancing clean energy and improving our grid infrastructure.
