Title FY 2010 Congressional Budget Request: Budgets Highlights.
Publication Date May 2009

Abstract President Obama has highlighted energy as one of three areas that are absolutely critical to our economic future. The prosperity and security of the United States hinge upon an historic effort to power the economy through clean and reliable energy sources. To get there, transformational discoveries and innovative technologies will be needed. The Department of Energy will leverage its premier scientific and technical resources and invest in new approaches to address this national imperative. The Department's fiscal year (FY) 2010 budget request of $26.4 billion supports the President's commitment to respond expeditiously to the challenges of economic uncertainty, U.S. dependence on oil, and the threat of a changing climate by transforming the way our Nation produces and consumes energy. Together with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act), the FY 2010 budget request provides the critical initial investment in a multi-year effort to address these interconnected challenges.1 In developing the FY 2010 budget request, the Department considered that the $38.7 billion of Recovery Act funding received by the Department allows for the acceleration of a number of important commitments. Recovery Act investments in energy conservation and renewable energy sources ($16.8 billion), environmental management ($6 billion), loan guarantees for renewable energy and electric power transmission projects ($6 billion), grid modernization ($4.5 billion), carbon capture and sequestration ($3.4 billion), basic science research ($1.6 billion), and the establishment of the Advanced Research Projects Agency - Energy (ARPA-E) ($0.4 billion) will help jumpstart the economy; save and create jobs; and serve as a down payment on addressing fundamental energy challenges while reducing carbon emissions and U.S. dependence on oil.
