The ETP Special Report on Clean Energy Innovation will assess how clean energy innovation can be significantly accelerated with a view to improving global energy systems resilience and achieving net-zero emissions in a timeframe compatible with international climate and sustainable energy goals. It will look at the potential impact of the Covid-19 crisis on the development of new technologies – and how governments can reshape the world’s energy future for the coming decades by incorporating innovation into their policies today.
Innovation is the key to fostering new technologies and advancing existing ones. But the pathway from the research lab to the mass market can be long, and success is not guaranteed. Given the ambitious targets that have been set for reaching net-zero emissions by many governments and companies, time is now in short supply.
