EI's Jeff Rissman says to decarbonize, industry should design longer-lasting, lower-carbon materials and make their processes more efficient, but policy is required to support research and development and help incentivize a transition to zero-carbon energy.
Statement from Energy Innovation CEO Hal Harvey on Sonia Aggarwal's appointment to serve as a climate policy advisor in the Biden administration.
New Energy Policy Simulator modeling shows a small group of policies can achieve the emissions reductions required for a 1.5 degree Celsius pathway, while generating large economic and health benefits. Transforming the economy in line with a 1.5 C target could increase U.S. GDP $1 trillion per year and create 5.5 million new job-years, while avoiding more than 65,000 premature deaths and 2 million asthma attacks, all by 2050.
EI analysis shows to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 the U.S. needs to phase out coal power by 2030, reach 100 percent clean electricity by 2035, ensure all car and bus sales are electric by 2035, and move to all-electric building component sales in the 2030s.
