Energy innovation offers us our best chance to solve the three urgent andinterrelated problems of climate change, worldwide insecurity over energy supplies, and rapidly growing energy demand. But if we are to achieve a timely transition toreliable, low-cost, low-carbon energy, the U.S. energy innovation system must beradically overhauled. Unlocking Energy Innovation outlines an up-to-the-minute planfor remaking America's energy innovation system by tapping the country'sentrepreneurial strengths and regional diversity in both the public and privatespheres. The authors map three waves of energy innovation to show how we can speedup the introduction of new technologies and business models and accelerate theirdeployment on a massive scale. "Business as usual" will not fill theenergy innovation gap. Nor will wishful thinking--common enough today, withpoliticians and others talking up some technologies, talking down others, andclaiming that if we price it, or if we mandate it, or if we simply say it often andinspiringly enough, the innovations will flow. Only the kind of systemic, transformative changes to our energy innovation system described in this provocativebook will help us avert the most dire scenarios and achieve a sustainable and secureenergy future.
