Published by Hoover Institution
The United States needs reliable and inexpensive energy to propel our economy and protect our national security interests. Game Changers presents five research and development efforts from US universities that offer a cheaper, cleaner, and more secure national energy system. Drawing from the efforts of Stanford, MIT, and other leading university research centers, the book describes some of the innovations that are transforming our energy landscape: natural gas from shale, solar photovoltaics, grid-scale electricity storage, electric cars, and LED lighting.

For each innovation, the authors detail the fruits of individual research and development projects that are available today, near at hand, or on the horizon. They also show how extreme energy reliability and performance demands have put the US military at the leading edge of driving energy innovations and survey potentially game-changing energy technologies being used by the US Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force on bases and in forward deployments.

The more choices our laboratories put on the table, the more we are able to use them to reach the things we really care about: health, family, business, culture, faith, and delight, which is what game changers are ultimately about.

EDITORS: George P. Shultz is the Thomas W. and Susan B. Ford Distinguished Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. Robert C. Armstrong is the director of the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI) and the Chevron Professor of Chemical Engineering.

CONTRIBUTORS: Jeremy Carl is a research fellow at the Hoover Institution and director of research for the Shultz-Stephenson Task Force on Energy Policy. Louis Carranza is associate director of MITEI. David Fedor is a research analyst on the Hoover Institution’s Shultz-Stephenson Task Force on Energy Policy. Rebecca Marshall-Howarth is MITEI's editorial services and publications director. Francis O’Sullivan is MITEI's director of research and analysis and a lecturer at the MIT Sloan School of Management. Commander David Slayton is a Hoover Institution research fellow, cochair of the Arctic Security Initiative, and a
member of the Task Force on Energy Policy.
