ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the significance of the new energy technologies to shift from oil and coal-fired electricity dependency in the U.S. It explores the recognition of the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama for the transition of new energy systems due to the challenges posed by climate change and energy security issues in the country. However, the author believes that despite the need for the technology-led transformation of its energy system, it will not be possible without the help of several public energy innovation institutions.
