Stanford study demonstrates 100% renewable US grid, with no blackouts

A study led by Stanford University professor Mark Jacobson has demonstrated that the US energy system running on wind, water and solar, coupled with storage, not only avoids blackouts but lowers energy requirements and consumer costs while creating millions of jobs, improving health, and freeing…

Impacts of Green New Deal Energy Planson Grid Stability, Costs, Jobs, Health,and Climate in 143 Countries – Mark Jacobson & co

This research involves several major components: 1)Projecting business-as-usual (BAU) end-use energy demand to 2050 for seven fuel types in each of sixenergy-use sectors, in each of 143 countries (Notes S2 and S3); 2)Estimating the 2050 reduction in demand due to electrifying or providing direct heat…

Response to ‘Burden of proof: A comprehensive review of the feasibility of 100% renewable-electricity systems’

Highlights • We respond to a recent article that is critical of the feasibility of 100% renewable-electricity systems. • Based on a literature review we show that none of the issues raised in the article are critical for feasibility or viability. • Each issue can…

The Global Price Tag for 100 Percent Renewable Energy: $73 Trillion

A global effort to transition to 100 percent renewable energy by 2050 would cost nations $73 trillion upfront — but the expense will pay for itself in under seven years, according to a new report from researchers at Stanford University. The study also found that…

L’université de Stanford confirme que le passage à 100% renouvelable est amorti en 7 ans

Un effort mondial pour passer à une énergie 100 % renouvelable d’ici à 2050 coûterait aux pays 73 000 milliards de dollars au départ – mais cette dépense sera amortie en moins de sept ans, selon un nouveau rapport de chercheurs de l’université Stanford. L’étude…
