Is Cap and Trade Enough? Why Reducing Emissions Depends on Technology Innovation

June 10, 2009

As the House considers climate legislation, many have come to believe that regulations alone will result in a reduction of emissions. But energy and technology experts say a more explicit federal investment in technology is needed. Please join the Brookings Institution, the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, and the Breakthrough Institute to discuss the need for an explicit innovation policy to address the challenge of global climate change. At the event, policy experts will discuss the price gap between fossil fuels and clean energy, and what innovation policies are needed to overcome it.
