Report from the Energy Technology Innovation Policy Research Group, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs.


Our report offers analysis and recommendations designed to accelerate the pace at which better energy technologies are discovered, developed, and deployed, and is focused in four key areas:

  • Designing an expanded portfolio of federal investments in energy research, development, demonstration (ERD&D), and complementary policies to catalyze the deployment of novel energy technologies;

  • Increasing incentives for private-sector innovation and strengthening federal-private energy innovation partnerships;

  • Improving the management of energy innovation institutions to maximize the results of federal investments; and

  • Expanding and coordinating international energy innovation cooperation to bring ideas and resources together across the globe to address these global challenges.
