While there is consensus that carbon-based energy sources will continue to meet the vast majority of the world’s energy needs for years to come, it is also clear that major breakthroughs across a range of clean energy technologies are essential to reconcile finite natural resources with seemingly infinite global energy demand.
A tremendous amount of research and investment is being directed at the search for technological breakthroughs to provide cleaner, more efficient, cheaper and more abundant sources of energy. There will be a huge demand for the wide diffusion of this innovation in years to come. This paper discusses the elements necessary in a global approach that prioritizes real world impact, but also respects intellectual property and the innovation process.
