Around 1.3 trillion US dollars have been invested into the renewable energy sector since 2006 and the growth trend is set to continue.
The International Energy Agency warns that nothing short of an energy sector revolution is required to protect the world from runaway climate change.
In a single year, a wind turbine in Hempstead, N.Y., provided $40,000 in clean energy for use to produce hydrogen fuel for cars.
Hydrogen has long been studied as a potential solution to wind’s timing problem, which is that wind generation tends to be highest at night when demand for electricity is low.
Here are some examples from around the world where high renewables are already becoming a reality.
If we look to a growing body of consensus among energy futures studies, we’ll see that a high renewables future is both possible and capable of coming soon.
The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory recently announced its results in using liquid hydrogen to power its Tiger Ion Unmanned Aircraft Vehicle.
