China Seeks to Dominate Clean-Tech Industry

I recently co-authored a report with the Breakthrough Institute and Information Technology & Innovation Foundation that performs the first comprehensive comparison of clean-tech industry competitiveness in China, Japan, South Korea, and the United States. The full report overview is here, including media coverage and a video of the release event, which was hosted by the Senate Energy & Natural Resources Committee.

"Rising Tigers, Sleeping Giant" Report Overview

"Rising Tigers, Sleeping Giant: Asian Nations Set to Dominate Clean Energy Race by Out-Investing the United States," a large new report recently released by the Breakthrough Institute and Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, is the first to comprehensively benchmark the competitive positions of the United States and key Asian challengers -- China, Japan and South Korea -- in the global clean energy race.

The report examines the competitive position of each nation in core clean energy technologies, including solar, wind, and nuclear power, carbon capture and storage, advanced vehicles and batteries, and high-speed rail, as well as the government strategies each nation hopes will strengthen its position in the global clean technology sector. The report also offers recommendations for U.S. federal policymakers for regaining U.S. competitiveness.
