Technical path forward:  Further details are provided, including the overall integration of needed technical tasks; key issues which must be addressed in order to generate the next-level package which (barring any surprises) could be suitable for further investment, development, and implementation; and elements of the technical path forward in recent proposals.   

Business path forward:  Further details are provided, including an overall long-term roadmap to implementation.  Some general considerations and challenges inherent in trying to move forward what economists call a large "public good" within the field of energy supply (which is essentially a commercial activity) are identified and discussed.  The budget from one recent pre-proposal on this subject is included.
