NSB Task Force on Sustainable Energy Seeks Public Review and Comment on Draft Sustainable Energy Report | National Science Board: “The National Science Board released for public review and comments the draft report, “Building a Sustainable Energy Future” (NSB-09-35). The fundamental transformation of the current extractive U.S. fossil fuel energy economy to a sustainable energy economy is a critical grand challenge facing the Nation today.
Transforming toward a sustainable energy economy requires national leadership and coordination, a new U.S. energy policy framework, and robust support for sustainable energy research, development, demonstration, deployment, and education. In its report, the Board makes a number of recommendations to the U.S. Government and offers guidance to the National Science Foundation.
Given the importance to promote national security through increasing U.S. energy independence, ensure environmental stewardship and reduce energy and carbon intensity, and generate continued economic growth through innovation in energy technologies and increases in green jobs, we hope that you will take this opportunity to express your views on the draft report.
