iClima Earth's Gabriela Herculano talks to Proactive London about the debate on whether the US energy system (or that of any country) should be 100% renewable energy based.
As she explains, the problem is intermittency, 'as the sun does not shine and the wind does not blow all the time'.
In the article below iClima summarise two of the leading views on this path towards a green grid in the US. On one side lie the bold predictions of thought leader and educator Tony Seba, published in October 2020, that the US grid could become 100% renewable and clean storage based by 2030. On the other hand, lie the conclusions of the US Department of Energy’s recently published Solar Future Studies, produced by the office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.
