This online data explorer supports the 90 percent by 2035 research by allowing anyone to see how the U.S. grid’s generation mix, cumulative clean energy additions, and greenhouse gas emissions reductions change over time in each of the country’s regional grid areas.
Realizing 90% decarbonization of the electricity grid by 2035 requires a massive investment in renewables and a combination of smart policies, as outlined in an EI report.
EI’s Mike O’Boyle says lower prices and the dependability of a 90% clean electricity grid by 2035 should empower policymakers to increase their ambition.
New research shows plummeting renewable energy and storage prices mean the U.S. can reliably reach 90 percent clean electricity by 2035 at no extra cost, supporting 530,000 new jobs per year, and cutting economy-wide emissions 27 percent.
EI’s CEO Hal Harvey explains why a targeted, realistic strategy is the most effective and fastest way to reduce emissions.
