Today, the esteemed President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) has issued a report, “Accelerating the Pace of Change in Energy Technologies Through an Integrated Federal Energy Policy” (view the report at www.ostp.gov) in which they provide a roadmap for the Federal role in transforming the U.S. energy system within one to two decades. The overarching transformation in the national energy innovation system that PCAST deems necessary is consistent with the urgent recommendations put forward by American Energy Innovation Council www.americanenergyinnovation.org earlier this year.
In PCAST’s important new study, a comprehensive energy strategy is suggested along with significantly increased public investments in energy technology innovation. Both of these ideas were central to the AEIC’s Business Plan for America’s Energy Future. Enactment of these recommendations would be a critically important step toward creating a cleaner, more secure energy system for the American people.
