The key authors of Transforming U.S. Energy Innovation released the report at an event in Washington, D.C. in November. Hosted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, report authors Venky Narayanamurti, Laura Diaz Anadon, and Matthew Bunn presented the study process, findings, and recommendations. Subsequently, they briefed officials and staff at the Department of Energy’s energy R&D division, ARPA-E, and at the Office of Management and Budget, Council on Environmental Quality, and the Office of Science and Technology Policy.  Diaz Anadon and Narayanamurti also held a briefing with over 30 staffers from the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources and another 30 or so high level DOE officials.

In January, the Belfer Center hosted Senator Jeff Bingaman, chair of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, along with key committee staff. Senator Bingaman met with the report authors as well as other energy experts at Harvard to hear their views on next steps the U.S. should take to advance the clean energy agenda.
