GLRPPR Sector Resource: Report to the President on Accelerating the Pace of Change in Energy Technologies Through an Integrated Federal Energy Policy

Title:
Report to the President on Accelerating the Pace of Change in Energy Technologies Through an Integrated Federal Energy Policy

Abstract:
This report provides a roadmap for the Federal role in transforming the U.S. energy system within one to two decades -- a transformation that is necessary, it concludes, for reasons of economic competitiveness, environmental stewardship, and national security. It calls for significant changes in the way the Federal government coordinates the complex job of fulfilling the Nation's energy needs across individual agencies and programs. It also calls for significantly increasing Federal investments in energy-related research and development, and suggests new revenue options that could support the development of more efficient energy technologies.
