Dawn breaks over a wind farm

Dawn is breaking for renewable energy in America. Wind was the fastest growing source of energy in 2012, and the solar industry now employs more workers than coal mines or oil and gas pipelines. And this progress should be just the beginning. The United States has ample resources to generate all its power renewably. However, today’s policies do not bring renewable power online quickly enough to meaningfully mitigate climate change. The problem is the rules, not the tools.

The Green Energy Institute develops and advocates for effective policies to advance renewable energy. Our mission is to facilitate a swift transition to a sustainable, 100% renewable power grid.
