Comments to the DOE Office of Clean Energy Demonstration Regarding Demand-Side Support for Clean Energy Technologies

Introduction and Summary

The Clean for Energy Innovation (CCEI) at Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) is pleased to submit the following comments to the US Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Clean Energy Demonstration (OCED) in response to DOE’s use of demand-side support for clean energy technologies. ITIF is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nonpartisan research and educational institute that has been recognized repeatedly as the world’s leading think tank for science and technology policy. ITIF’s CCEI formulates, evaluates, and promotes policy solutions that accelerate innovation to make energy both clean and competitive.

DOE OCED issued OCED-RFI-23-1 to seek public input for informing DOE’s development of demand-side support measures for clean energy technologies. Demand-side support measures represent a potential tool to support DOE’s mission by providing a predictable commercial market for clean energy technologies. There are several demand-side support measures, including but not limited to direct procurement, advanced market commitments, and guaranteed price floors.
