Subsidy Pay now, reap later

The goal of using taxpayer money to fund new energy technologies, is to help them get to where they can compete without subsidy. A good idea, but difficult to execute. One lesson learned is not to pick winners. Government support is usually best when it’s broad based and technology neutral, awarded to new ideas that meet preset goals of performance, price, timeframe and scalability.
