Building a sustainable energy future: US actions for an effective energy economy transformation


The National Science Board Task Force on Sustainable Energy issued its final report on August 3, 2009 after nearly 2 years of public roundtable meetings and study. In short, transforming our energy economy will require national leadership and coordination; a new US energy policy framework; and robust support for energy research, development, demonstration, deployment, and education. The report offers recommendations for a nationally coordinated science and engineering research and education initiative, with explicit guidance for the role of the National Science Foundation.
