Synopsis

Unlocking Energy Innovation How America Can Build a Low-Cost, Low-Carbon Energy System by Richard K. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Lester, David M. (Professor and Director, George Mason University) Hart

Energy innovation offers us our best chance to solve the three urgent and interrelated problems of climate change, worldwide insecurity over energy supplies, and rapidly growing energy demand. But if we are to achieve a timely transition to reliable, low-cost, low-carbon energy, the U.S. energy innovation system must be radically overhauled. Unlocking Energy Innovation outlines an up-to-the-minute plan for remaking America's energy innovation system by tapping the country's entrepreneurial strengths and regional diversity in both the public and private spheres. Business as usual will not fill the energy innovation gap. Only the kind of systemic, transformative changes to our energy innovation system described in this provocative book will help us avert the most dire scenarios and achieve a sustainable and secure energy future.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
