Third Way’s new report, Creating a Clean Energy Century, launches Third Way’s Clean Energy Innovation Project, which will make a sustained case for American clean energy innovation as a key to driving private sector economic growth and transforming how the country produces and consumes energy.

The United States has fallen far from its position as the leader in clean energy in the 1970s. Today, China, Japan, South Korea and Germany have committed to policies and investments that put them in the lead. Whichever country or countries emerge as the leaders of clean energy will get the greatest economic benefits. If the U.S. doesn’t act soon it will find itself as permanent consumer, rather than producer of these new clean energy technologies. This report launches Third Way’s Clean Energy Innovation Project, which will make a sustained case for American clean energy innovation as a key to driving private sector economic growth and transforming how the country produces and consumes energy. The report examines clean energy innovation policy and investment in the U.S. and around the globe. It also offers a policy roadmap to jump start America’s lagging clean energy innovation efforts.
