During the presidential campaign and his first months in the Oval Office, Joe Biden has expressed his commitment to fight against climate change and promote clean energy, marking a sharp difference from his predecessor. Indeed, Trump pursued US “energy independence” by leveraging US fossil fuels production and rolling back from several environmental and climate regulations, which he considered harmful for the US economy. Conversely, Biden has argued in favor of developing the clean energy industry in the US and in the world to vigorously address climate change. The current administration’s energy policy consists of a dual objective: addressing climate change and reestablishing American leadership within the fight against climate change and in key sectors of the future low-carbon economy.
