Does well too on 'option generation' (i.e. scale & diversity of clean energy RD&D funding).
Poorest on 'scale-up' (i.e. later stage demonstration & commercialisation).
For a world leader in higher education research our relative spend is a fraction of some of our peers in W. Europe & N. America.
Just look at the USA's relative spend. Quite amazing. Mexico too also very impressive.
It fell down on patents & CCS/adv nuclear spend.
"The UK has a lower carbon price, but partially compensates for it with a much higher transportation fuel tax"
UK top in international collaboration on clean energy RD&D - participates in all 8 @MICleanEnergyRD Challenges, leading 2, & hosting the MI Secretariat.
LET'S KEEP - growing RD&D spend, taxing carbon & engaging internationally
LET'S START - growing share and diversity of clean energy RD&D. Also grow total energy science budget & supporting IP protection through patents.
