Solar News

More evidence, as reported by the NYT, of an approaching energy technology tipping point in California.

I'm becoming less and less convinced that government has a role to play in energy R&D investment. I suspect that there's a huge role to be played in setting appropriate incentives--and investment--in deployment. This needs to be very carefully considered. The ways that government can stifle innovation in this area vastly outnumber the ways it can be helpful.
