A Foundation for DOE: An Idea Whose Time Has Come

Tuesday, May 11, 2021 - 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Virtual Webinar

Numerous federal agencies have non-profit, non-governmental foundations that work with them to advance their missions. The CDC and NIH foundations, for example, have made important contributions to public health during the pandemic. The flexibility and agility of such foundations allow them to undertake activities that complement and amplify those of their affiliated agencies. Would a similar foundation help DOE achieve its mission, including accelerating clean energy innovation?

ITIF hosted a discussion of this prospect, embodied in the proposed Partnerships for Energy Security and Innovation Act, which has won bipartisan, bicameral sponsorship.
