U.S. Could Meet its U.N. Paris Climate Agreement Emissions Reductions

Eliminating the use of coal to generate electricity would be the single biggest step the U.S. could take in meeting its U.N. Paris Climate Agreement GHG emissions reductions goals, according a new study from Portland State University. Accomplishing this would require a wholesale shift in the U.S. power generation mix to "natural gas, efficiency, wind, solar power and biofuels."Read More

Wrong Again: Electrical Generation from Renewable Blows Past EIA Forecast

Forecasts from the Energy Information Administration have consistently underestimated the growth of renewable energy development in the United States, a trend that persisted through 2016. The latest EIA Electric Power Monthly report shows continued rapid growth from all renewable energy sources through December 31, 2016. Electrical generation from solar, wind, biomass, geothermal, and hydropower sources accounted for 15.34 […]Read More

Non-Hydro Renewables Generate More Electricity Than Conventional Hydro for First

Historically large-hydro renewable sources like large dams have contributed most electrical generation from the combined renewable sources including wind, solar, biomass and geothermal. But the tide may be turning on the growing renewable energy mix. According preliminary data published in the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s latest Electric Power Monthly report, non-hydro renewable energy sources generated 53.16 percent of all […]Read More

Electrical Generation Capacity from Renewable Sources Surges Under Obama

Electrical generation from renewable energy sources such as wind, solar and geothermal has grown dramatically under the Obama administration says Ken Bossong, Executive Director of the SUN DAY Campaign. Bossong cites two new government studies that show a near doubling of non-hydro renewable energy sources contributing to U.S. electrical generation since president Obama took office. […]Read More
