The DOE has spent billions over the last 20 years, but has contributed zero
to successful, energy technologies. I believe that solar technology and other
energy technologies are slamming hard into the marketplace and finding to
egress, on which to develop. Maybe that is necessary, because, perhaps what
Freeman Dyson had to say "if a technology cannot be permitted to fail, then
it will fail", is apt. Fuel Cells looks to be the closest to success,
technology, as far as becomming 'real".
