Keys to Unlocking Advanced Energy Innovation
Breakthrough Institute, Breakthrough Institute
For economic, security, and environmental reasons, the global energy system is modernizing and diversifying. Today's economies are still predominately fueled by conventional fossil energy sources first pioneered in the 19th century. The energy demands of the 21st century, in contrast, will be met by a portfolio of advanced energy technologies offering improved public health, strengthened energy security, and the affordable and reliable fuel needed for sustainable global development. The advanced energy technologies of this 21st century energy system are being invented and commercialized today, and some will ultimately become the dominant players in a $5 trillion global energy market expected to double in size by mid-century. . .
