Description
 
The U.S. faces a critical challenge to transform our current fossil fuel based energy economy to a stable and sustainable energy economy. This transformation must be achieved in a timely manner to increase U.S. energy independence, enhance environmental stewardship and reduce energy and carbon intensity, and generate continued economic growth. In this report, the Nat. Science Board (NSF) offers key findings, recommendations to the U.S. Government, and guidance to the Nat. Science Found. (NSF). Collectively, these actions will initiate and sustain a transformation to a sustainable energy economy. The following six topics of key findings support and form the basis of the Board’s recommendations and guidance: 1: U.S. Government leadership and coordination: A comprehensive coordinated Federal strategy is required for sustainable energy initiatives. 2: R&D investment: Private and Federal support for sustainable energy R&D is inadequate. 3: Policy development: The U.S. energy economy is carbon-intensive and does not adequately value the environment as a public good. 4: Energy education and workforce: Human capital development in the sustainable energy sector is vital. 5: Global cooperation: Limited international engagement and collaboration inhibits progress on sustainable energy solutions. 6: Energy awareness and action: Strong public consensus and support for sustainable energy actions are needed to achieve a national transformation to a sustainable energy economy. Includes recommendations. Figures.
