Jay detailed how U.S. clean energy innovation leadership can spur a pragmatic global climate strategy
A panel of experts discussed the Nuclear Energy Leadership Act (NELA), a comprehensive blueprint for the U.S. to once again lead the world in next-generation nuclear power. NELA addresses the lack of aggressive yet achievable milestones for U.S.-led advanced reactor technologies and of an overall long-term strategy for the direction of U.S. nuclear science and engineering research and development.
At a Nov. 6, 2017 event sponsored by ClearPath, Rep. Ryan Costello and a panel of experts moderated by Axios energy reporter Amy Harder tackled the question of whether China was running fast in front of the U.S. in the clean energy innovation race and, if so, what can the U.S. do to catch up?
