@cody_a_hill @dugntyg @JohnDPMorgan @sydnets @jgkoomey @drvox And since we don't know exactly where we'll end up, we should be investing across all of these (and more). Now.
@cody_a_hill @dugntyg @JohnDPMorgan @sydnets @jgkoomey @drvox Except that we need a full toolkit when we get there and all these technologies -- new nuclear designs, gas w/CCS at near 100% capture, engineered geothermal, seasonal storage -- are not mature or even commercial. That takes time The best time to plant a forest was 20 years ago.
@cody_a_hill @dugntyg @JohnDPMorgan @sydnets Yes no business case/need for long duration storage now / in next decade in most (all?) regions. 2030s and beyond we may start needing it if regions are committed to 100% RE. That's not too far off I terms of pace of tech development cycles however.
@DustinMulvaney @alannogee @CostaSamaras @jgkoomey Yep. IIRC there was about $15b/yr in deployment incentives to buy down the cost of maturing clean energy technologies in there. Similar to calls in Beyond Boom and Bust report (my last at BTI).
