Clean energy solutions often cost more than current “Dirty” energy solutions. Politicians are trying to increase the cost of “Dirty” energy so Clean Tech can compete. But is there a way to deliver energy:
- Clean – less CO2 than its competitors
- Cheap – less cost on a $/kwhr basis than dirty
- Secure – does not require imports
- Plentiful – more energy than one could ever need, or hope to need
What are the possible solutions?
- Energy Efficiency
But what else? What needs to be true to reduce the cost of Clean Tech? How much of the cost is wasted dealing with needless regulation? How much of the cost is wasted dealing with arcane and irrelevant rules? How much time do utilities spend persuading regulators to address CO2? How much time do utilities waste fighting change?
