Debating the Future of U.S. Clean Energy Policy and Closing Remarks

Posted by admin on February 3, 2013 in Clean Energy with No Comments


Without a doubt, clean energy has made some progress in the last 5 years. Costs are down and some technology improvements have been made. But the fact remains the same — clean energy still isn’t cost and performance competitive with fossil fuels. To the extent the current Clean Energy debate focuses on the development of better clean energy technologies (as opposed to simply scaling existing technologies) there is little consensus on the optimal clean energy innovation policy. Is it more subsidies? Different types of subsidies? Regulatory mandates? More support for R&D? A carbon tax? Or something else altogether? John Broder of the New York Times will moderate a vigorous discussion among leading energy policy thought leaders on what path and makeup American clean energy policy should take in the coming years.
