President Joe Biden promoted the clean energy elements of his stalled spending bill in a session with power company executives, saying his proposals would lower prices, create jobs and make the nation’s grid more resilient to extreme weather.

“Companies are betting on a clean energy future and the world is betting on American workers to build it,” Biden on Wednesday told executives from some of the nation’s largest utilities who gathered at the White House.
