Shawhan, Daniel; et al. (2021): The Value of Advanced Energy Funding. Projected Effects of Proposed US Funding for Advanced Energy Technologies

Shawhan, Daniel; Cleary, Kathryne; Funke, Christoph; Witkin, Steven (2021): The Value of Advanced Energy Funding. Projected Effects of Proposed US Funding for Advanced Energy Technologies. Issue Brief 21-03. Resources for the Future.

"Expert analysis and RFF modeling show that authorizing funding for key technologies under the Energy Act of 2020 would create significant societal benefits from 2040-2060. Combined with a clean energy standard, a majority of these benefits would come from lower consumer electric bills."
