Description (excerpt):

As a global energy and technology leader the U.S. has an opportunity to position itself as a dominant player in the emerging technologies needed to enable the transition to a net-zero economy. Building an early lead in the technologies of the future will create domestic jobs, drive exports, and expand U.S. geostrategic interests in critical areas. Further, building a leading position in emerging clean technologies will offset the economic and societal impacts as the position of high-carbon industries, such as fossil fuels, changes in a net-zero economy.

This study has prioritized six emerging clean technologies to build a balanced portfolio that can unlock significant carbon abatement potential, drive important economic activity, and enable decarbonization in a range of critical areas. These technologies include: Electric Vehicles (EVs); Clean steel; Low-carbon hydrogen (H2); Electrochemical Long Duration Energy Storage (LDES); Direct Air Capture (DAC); Advanced nuclear Small Modular Reactors (SMRs).
