Description (excerpt):

This report puts forward an innovation agenda for solar, wind, geothermal, and water power. It organizes the key technologies into two categories: those that supply variable energy, which is only produced as a resource is available, and those that supply firm energy, which is available as needed. The technologies in each category have common roles, challenges, and opportunities. They also complement one another: Firm renewables enable very cheap variable renewables to provide more energy than they otherwise would. Within the two categories, each subsection summarizes the current status of a technology, describes its potential to contribute to decarbonization, and identifies opportunities for the federal government to accelerate innovation.
