EI's Sarah Spengeman explains why a national clean electricity standard would significantly reduce toxic air pollution that harms health and save thousands of lives, while also revitalizing pollution-burdened communities.
Given the long lifespans of power system investments, planning should start incorporating climate change effects. A new study provides a valuable example of an approach to more comprehensively integrate climate risks in long-term electricity planning. This work also illustrates an important win-win in that solar power is both an effective adaptation (helping to reduce summer peak) and carbon mitigation strategy, highlighting positive, no-regret investments.
A new meta-analysis of seven clean energy policy studies led by researchers at prominent universities, think tanks, and non-governmental organizations finds strong agreement on the feasibility of achieving approximately 80 percent clean electricity by 2030 in the United States, as well as the immense economic and health benefits of a rapid clean energy transition.
EI research with RMI shows if Colorado adopted even stronger climate policies, the state’s economy would add 36,000 jobs and gain an additional $7.5 billion every year by 2050.
