This report makes recommendations for how an international technology collaboration could be structured. It proposes using “virtual” and low cost “distributed innovation” internet-based tools to accelerated technology cooperation and change – in the same way most major corporations today create collaborative products with partners outside their companies. It argues that climate policy makers should use these corporate strategies in climate, and accelerate global product development in low-carbon technologies at a scale and in the time frames needed for stabilization – and to do so using new structures outside the existing institutions.
