Brookings Mountain West Lecture

"Clean Energy: The Economics of Why and How"

Adele Morris, Fellow, Economic Studies and Policy Director for Climate and Energy Economics

One rationale for large public investments in clean energy technology points to concerns that have not been addressed by other policies, most notably greenhouse gas emissions and energy security. Another inspiration for clean energy policy suggests that strategic government investments would increase domestic firms' market share of a growing industry and thus help domestic firms and workers. This lecture examines the economic case for clean energy policy in the United States and addresses the issues state and local governments confront in building a clean energy industry.
