U.S. climate policy is focusing more sharply than ever on accelerating the development of technologies that will make energy cleaner, more affordable, and more reliable. Yet, such innovations do the climate no good unless they are widely deployed.

As David Hart writes in RealClearEnergy, the Biden administration and Congress should adopt innovation uptake policies to ensure that the remarkable products of federal investment and American ingenuity are not left moldering on the shelf. Key action items include creating a market-facing Office of Innovation Uptake in the Department of Energy (DOE) and redesigning clean energy tax incentives.
