ACCF Center for Policy Research Applauds Bill Gates Announcement on Expansion of Breakthrough Energy Coalition

Statement from Drew Bond, ACCF Senior Fellow & Director of Energy Innovation Programs:

“Bill Gates has demonstrated his leadership and forward thinking in expanding the Breakthrough Energy Coalition (BEC) and its initial focus areas for investment. By bringing together more industry partners, investors, governments, and other stakeholders to the table, we can accelerate R&D and commercialization of new technologies that will help us achieve a cleaner, safer and more prosperous future. Energy innovation is a unique middle ground where conservatives and progressives can find common ground. The nexus of free market competition, environmental protection, and energy security is a win-win that should unite us all. We look forward to supporting the efforts of the BEC and advancing policies that help advance these important next generation technologies.”
