Energy coverage is on everyone's brain nowadays. The U.S. presidential crusade fascinated with power independence and exploration ("Drill, child, drill!"), weather swap, substitute fuels, even nuclear strength. yet there's a major problem endemic to America's power demanding situations. Policymakers are inclined to just do adequate to meet political calls for yet now not sufficient to unravel the genuine difficulties, and so they wait too lengthy to behave. The ensuing regulations are overly reactive, enacted as soon as harm is already performed, and they're too frequently incomplete, incoherent, and ineffectual. Given the gravity of present monetary, geopolitical, and environmental matters, this is often extra unacceptable than ever. this crucial quantity info this challenge, making transparent the unlucky result of such short-sighted considering, and it proposes measures to beat this counterproductive tendency.
All of the participants to Acting in Time on power Policy are affiliated with Harvard collage and rank between America's pre-eminent strength coverage analysts. They take on vital questions as they pertain to precise components of strength coverage: Why are those parts of power coverage so very important? How could "acting in time"i.e. no longer ready until eventually politics calls for actionmake a distinction? What may still our coverage truly be? we have to get strength coverage correct this timeGallagher and her colleagues aid lead the way.
