This research review details the costs, benefits, and justice implications of a rapid coal exit scenario and find it produces net societal benefits of $3.4 trillion, or 1.5 percent of global GDP.
This brief explores the role of resource adequacy in the clean energy transformation: How the clean power transformation challenges grid resource adequacy planning and management paradigms, how fossil fuel incumbents exploit resource adequacy challenges to electric grid reliability, and why changing perception about resource adequacy must be a top priority for climate mitigation.
EI's study found that customers would save money if 74% percent of U.S. coal units were replaced with solar and wind power sited nearby.
