The world is not on track to achieve the deep reductions in greenhouse gas emissions necessary to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. Current technologies—even with continued incremental improvements and cost reductions—will not be sufficient to achieve a global low-carbon energy system. So, while the United States is likely to see greater deployment and incremental improvements in current clean-energy technologies, it also should be investing robustly in next-generation technologies that can achieve the significant breakthroughs the planet needs to drive the transition to a low-carbon energy future.

Join ITIF for an expert panel discussion on the limits of current technologies and “gaps” in the clean energy innovation agenda. ITIF senior policy analyst Colin Cunliff will present a new analysis of hard-to-decarbonize sectors, potential technology solutions, and policy steps to get there.
