This February 2021 report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine and provides a technical blueprint and policy manual for the U.S. energy system over the first critical 10 years of a 30-year effort to transform to net-zero GHG emissions. This report identifies federal policies to advance five technological and four socioeconomic goals and to how to achieve quantitative milestones along this path. Upwards of $2 trillion in costs would be funded through federal appropriations and carbon pricing. The benefits would be significant, including a more competitive and inclusive U.S. economy. Extensive policy summary tables with cost benefit analysis are provided.
