One of the greatest challenges facing human civilization is the provision of secure, affordable energy without causing catastrophic environmental damage. As the world's largest economy, and as a world leader in energy technologies, the United States is a particularly important case. In the light of increased competition from other countries (particularly China), growing concerns about the local and global environmental impacts of the energy system, an ever-present interest in energy security, and the realization that technological innovation takes place in a complex ecosystem involving a wide range of domestic and international actors, this volume provides a comprehensive and analytical assessment of the role that the US government should play in energy technology innovation. It will be invaluable for policy makers in energy innovation and for researchers studying energy innovation, future energy technologies, climate-change mitigation, and innovation management. It will act as a supplementary textbook for courses on energy and innovation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... this volume is an invaluable addition to a wider energy innovation literature that can, and should, be read by US policy-makers, particularly at the federal level. It is an account of how the US federal government has been responding to the need for [research, development and demonstration] RD&D in the energy sector. It is a critical analysis of how the RD&D aspect of US energy innovation, especially its ever-changing political dynamics can be accelerated. It also offers a thorough discussion of how RD&D could be systematically facilitated through a structured approach. It is a concise, well-focused study of the RD&D aspect of a rather complex and messy energy innovation system.' Laurence L. Delina, Journal Science and Public Policy
