This chapter explores the three types of clean energy and how the four broad methods of achieving improvements in performance and costs contribute to a better understanding of the potential for improvements in wind turbines, solar cells, and electric vehicles. It shows that the costs of clean energy fall as more wind turbines, solar cells, and electric vehicles are produced. This technology change has important implications for governments in implementing better energy policies that would stimulate the necessary improvements in performance and cost.
