In this bill Forbes outlines a series of prizes, similar to the X-PRIZE, which would be awarded to a private entity, which completed one of seven tasks related to achieving energy independence:
The bill includes 14 billion dollars in prizes and 10 billion dollars in grants. It also seeks to establish a summit to discuss the challenge of energy independence and a commission to create a set of recommendations to fulfill the goal of becoming 50% energy independent within 10 years and fully independent in 20 years.
