President Joe Biden is calling for sweeping investment in electric vehicles, renewable power and the electric grid as part of a broad blueprint to bolster the U.S. economy while combating climate change.
Norway's Aker Offshore Wind and Swedish firm Hexicon have signed an agreement to jointly explore and realize floating wind opportunities offshore Sweden, that could generate "several gigawatts" of renewable power.

The UK on Wednesday announced a landmark deal aimed at supporting the oil and gas industry’s transition to clean, green energy. It also said it would introduce the "Climate Compatibility Checkpoint" before future licensing rounds.
