NAW Staff, Wednesday 17 November 2010 - 11:13:11

A new study from the Kauffman Foundation analyzes five major policy strategies to accelerate the development of clean energy in the U.S.

The report, "A Clean Energy Roadmap: Forging the Path Ahead," is based on outcomes of three clean energy summits that explored how industry participants might better collaborate to propel economic development and job creation by boosting energy-sector entrepreneurship and innovation. The report also encompasses the results of an intensive review of more than 20 scientific articles and interviews with 15 of the U.S.' top clean energy entrepreneurs.

The report identifies the following strategies to advance clean energy adoption in the U.S.: 


"While the clean energy sector has tremendous growth potential, it can progress only if federal and state governments are willing to establish policies that will encourage commercialization and scale of energy innovation," says Lesa Mitchell, vice president of advancing innovation at Kauffman Foundation. "Further, everyone in the energy sector - including private corporations, nonprofits, philanthropic foundations, service organizations and academia - have a role to play. With government, they must jointly address challenges, generate new ideas and support clean energy researchers to establish and sustain the United States' position as a global clean energy innovator."
