The United States depends on a reliable and affordable supply of energy. While the nation has curtailed the most severe and life threatening pollution from energy production, more progress could be made in reducing harmful pollutants and greenhouse gases. A new report from the National Academies’ Board on Science, Technology, and Economic Policy asks an important question: rather than trade affordability and reliability for low emissions, is there a way to balance all three? The Power of Change: Innovation for Development and Deployment of Increasingly Clean Energy Technologies considers how to speed up innovations that would dramatically improve the performance and lower the cost of currently available technologies while also developing new advanced cleaner energy technologies. The report concludes there is opportunity for the United States to continue to lead in this pursuit.
