100% Renewable Energy for all U.S. States and the World
Dear GENI Friend,
The momentum is building in
the Renewable Energy world. Today we feature the work of Stanford University Professor
Mark Jacobsen who has conducted detailed research on the transition to a
renewable energy future. He has developed 100% Renewable Energy Roadmaps
for every US state, entitled: TheSolutionsProject.org
What you can see from this
California example is the diversification of clean energy resources required for
reliability and to meet the demand: some from individual rooftop systems as
well as large solar and wind farms, geothermal and hydropower generation.
Utilities must provide
reliable power 24/7, so this broad mix is critical to meet daytime peak and nighttime
The other critical
infrastructure is the electric grid that links these big renewables with cities
and industry. Tapping large renewables and high-voltage interconnections go
Professor Jacobsen makes the
case that the transition will also create thousands of construction and
operation jobs – a selling point in every state.
We have been publishing GENI's 100% Renewable Energy Road Maps for the top 20
nations, researched by our international interns to encourage the clean
revolution in their home countries. The argument is simple: there's plenty
of untapped capacity, it creates domestic jobs and it's cleaner.
