This joint Rocky Mountain Institute / Energy Transitions Commission (ETC) report from June 2020 sets out a green stimulus package for short-term recovery and long-term growth. The proposed blueprint discusses the need for new technology-based infrastructure (5G, AI, IoT); green/energy efficient urbanization investment; stronger promotion of green consumption (EV); and accelerated funding for zero-carbon electrification. The anticipated investments and results are compared with the outcomes of previous stimulus programs. This report, part of a series focused on “Green Stimulus and Recovery,” will be of interest from the perspective of investment/financing, technology development, and public policy.
Key words: artificial intelligence (AI), market sizing, Internet of Things (IoT), energy management, zero net energy
