FY2020 Presidential Budget Request Chart
On March 11, 2019, the Administration released its Budget Request for FY2020. The total proposed funding for the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) at the U.S. Department of Energy for FY2020 is $696 million, roughly a 71% cut from FY2019 funding levels. However, the Administration proposes to reach the $696 million by combining $343 million in new appropriations with $353 million from prior fiscal years. Therefore, the proposal for new funding is actually an 86% cut from current funding levels. The chart below contains the recommended funding levels for a selection of federal energy efficiency programs, many of which are within EERE, which is why the sum does not equal $696 million.
