Renewable Energy Policy and Regulation

Energy / Regulatory Policy

An “all-of-the-above” energy policy, which calls for the utilization of all forms of energy, is one of the few policies that enjoys bipartisan support. Its realization, however, requires a thoughtful set of policies that provide a level playing field and the certainty required to make long-term investments in energy R&D and commercialization. The reports included on this page detail the current state of funding and regulation, the historical role of government subsidies for all forms of energy, and the need for policies that ensure the growth, maturation and market acceptance of clean energy and associated technologies.
