Innovation Mission

Mission Innovation is a global initiative to accelerate public and private clean energy innovation to address climate change , make clean energy to consumers, and create green jobsand commercial opportunities. [1]

Foundation

It was announced by Bill Gates at COP21 on November 30, 2015, on stage with President Obama , President Holland [2] and Prime Minister Modi . [3]

At the launch, 20 countries committed to their respective clean energy research and development over the years to 2020. For the US Department of Energy , this translates into an additional $ 4 billion by the end of 2020. [4] The countries include the Five most populous (as at 2015): China, India, the United States, Indonesia, and Brazil. All 20 launch partner countries represent 75 percent of the world’s CO2 emissions from electricity, and over 80 percent of the world’s clean energy R & D investment. [1]

Its link to private sector investment is through the Breakthrough Energy Coalition group of private investors, also spearheaded by Bill Gates and COP21 . [5]

Criticism

Several of Mission Innovation’s aims are compatible with those of the Global Apollo Program , announced earlier in 2015. What is the mission of innovation in the least? and a committee to co-ordinate research efforts across the globe and to identify successful opportunities. [6]

Technology focus

The initiative is open in its focus and will, according to Gates, “pursue literally dozens and dozens of paths”. [5]

Several examples have been mentioned at the launch of the initiative: biofuel , carbon capture and storage , airborne wind turbines , nuclear fission and nuclear fusion . [7]

Gates has also mentioned the potential of liquid hydrocarbons being produced from sunlight via artificial photosynthesis ( solar fuel ) by 2025. [6] [8]
