Description (excerpt):

In a new report, ClearPath details its proposal to modernize the United States Department of Energy (DOE). The intent of the report is to align a new Administration on a pro-innovation agenda by reorganizing DOE to better promote energy security, with a focus on difficult-to-decarbonize sectors and deployment.

“The United States is in the midst of an energy revolution. Demand for new energy will reach all-time highs, breakthrough technologies are beginning to commercialize, and existing technologies are innovating new, cleaner ways to produce more energy,” said Rich Powell, CEO of ClearPath. “The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) can play an important role in supporting these opportunities, but it must remain focused on America’s global energy leadership, advancing innovative technologies, protecting national security interests, and supporting fundamental research and science.”

ClearPath’s Proposal to Modernize the U.S. Department of Energy focuses on holistic policy recommendations and offers a new organizational structure to promote innovation. Effective implementation will require the Department to prioritize energy security, innovations for major emitting sectors and public-private partnerships to achieve rapid deployment.
