Energy Innovation Policy Starts with Good Economic Policy

When: July 01 2021 11:00 AM ET
Where: Virtual


With both political parties on Capitol Hill expressing a strong appetite for energy innovation, it is worth exploring what policies stimulate innovation and technology uptake in the private sector. Join experts from the Tax Foundation, Heritage Foundation and the R Street Institute as they discuss the important roles of taxes, regulations and subsidies in facilitating the market to adopt new energy technologies—and how some poorly designed policies meant to stimulate innovation can become ironic barriers.
We invite you to join this webinar to learn more about the complex and highly important relationship between government policy and energy innovation.
