Accelerating energy innovation could be an important part of an effective response
to the threat of climate change. Written by a stellar group of experts in the field,
this book complements existing research on the subject with an exploration of the
role that public and private policy have played in enabling--and sustaining--swift
innovation in a variety of industries, from agriculture and the life sciences to information
technology. Chapters highlight the factors that have determined the impact of past
policies, and suggest that effectively managed federal funding, strategies to increase
customer demand, and the enabling of aggressive competition from new firms are important
ingredients for policies that affect innovative activity.
