Energy Department deletes "clean energy" from website

The Trump administration is at it again, this time removing all references to “clean energy” from the U.S. Department of Energy’s website. According to reports, the “Clean Energy Investment Center” has become the “Energy Investor Center.” On another agency webpage, the phrase “facilitate access to DOE portfolio of investable clean energy opportunities” no longer features the word clean. Ditto for the phrase “clean tech investment,” which has been switched to “U.S. energy technologies investment.” This administration’s elimination of “clean energy” from federal websites is really not surprising in the light of President Trump’s budget, which proposes to drastically reduce the Energy Department’s funding for renewable energy and energy efficiency programs in favor of fossil fuels.
