Well-designed energy policy can dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions, save consumers money, and spur innovation. Poorly designed policy fails on some, or all, counts. And bad policy is the far more prevalent type. There is no way to solve the climate problem without reforming energy policy, but this must be done with care and intelligence.
Hal Harvey, CEO of Energy Innovation LLC, and the founder of the Energy Foundation in the USA and similar foundations in China, Eu- rope, and India, will discuss the difference between good and bad energy policy. He will discuss mechanisms that stimulate technology innovation, drive new technologies down their price curve, and pro- mote system optimization. He will discuss how to get the maximum progress from limited political bandwidth. And he will argue that a transformation to a low-carbon energy system can be faster and less expensive than most realize.
