Following is a statement by Abigail Ross Hopper, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association:
Renewables like wind and solar require at least 10 times more land per unit of power than coal or natural gas-fired plants. Yet, many people consider them more sustainable than fossil fuels because they don't directly emit greenhouse gasses.
The U.S. solar industry employs more than 230,000 workers, as of 2020, at more than 10,000 companies across every state. Imagine the possibilities, much like business leaders around the world are imagining today.
As supply chain challenges persist, the solar industry awaits massive growth with the potential passage of the Build Back Better Act
Electric Vehicle Sales Headed for Five and a Half Million in 2021 as Automakers Target 40 Million Per Year by 2030
Passenger electric vehicle sales are set to jump over 80% in 2021, to 5.6 million units, off the back of unprecedented industry and government commitments around the world over the last two years.
What got us till here may not be sufficient to take us to the finish line. Persistent efforts at an accelerated pace in the right direction is vital to reach decarbonization goals by 2035.
Low-income community members can also access affordable solar power when utilizing tax incentives. Part of Biden's two trillion-dollar funding through the Build Back Better plan supports tax credit extensions.
U.S. installed 26 gigawatts of new clean power in 2020; 170 GW of capacity enough to power 50 million homes. Industry employs 415,000 Americans and has invested $334 billion in the U.S. economy since 2005 with more growth coming.
The U.S. Department of Energy and the White House have made offshore wind a centerpiece of plans to strengthen the nation's energy infrastructure, announcing a goal to deploy 30 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2030-a huge leap from the 42 megawatts currently in operation.
The EU's proposed sustainability legislation poses hydrogen manufacturers a problem - if grid electricity is used in production, it will not be considered green. So, what's the solution? Here, we consider wave power as an off grid alternative
President Biden recently introduced a massive infrastructure bill designed to reshape the U.S. economy while addressing infrastructure reform. Biden's stated goal is to achieve 100 percent carbon-free power by 2035.
New tech can gather data about energy distribution and storage, for instance. This step can further reduce costs as workers can store more energy on sunny days so it doesn't go to waste.
The Committee on Climate Change's (CCC) Sixth Carbon Budget report explains that, in order to achieve net zero emissions, the UK must eliminate all fossil fuel generated power by 2035 and increase variable renewable energy production by 80 per cent by 2050.
The donation is the largest unrestricted charitable contribution that IREC has received. Through a long-term power purchase agreement, the system will generate revenue that will help support the organization's programs for at least 13 years.
Would Congress Pushback on Biden's Environmental Efforts Hinder Alternative Energy Progress?
