All the research in the world isn't going to make the sun shine at night. The main problem with solar isn't solar cell efficiency, it's the expense of energy storage to get through periods when solar insolation is low. Same with wind, the problem is storage to get through calm periods. Plus windmills installed in the wrong place kills endangered birds.
Efficiency research? Private industry already has the motivation to increase efficiency and has made far more progress than the Federal Government.
Clean cars? We already have them.
Climate "Science"? Hasn't that resulted in very few successful predictions so far?
Batteries? Yeah, ok. We need better batteries and other forms of energy storage.
