    New Year, New Clean Energy Analysis: New Study Finds Lots of Benefits, Few Costs

    John Rogers, January 10, 2017 (Union of Concerned Scientists)

    “…[A] new report from two of our nation’s premier national energy laboratories analyzes the power of a lot more strong growth in clean energy…[They find] lots of likely upside, not much downside… A prospective analysis of the costs, benefits, and impacts of U.S. renewable portfolio standards models states’ renewable portfolio standards (RPSs) and what the different levels of renewable energy mandated by them] might mean for the future…One, the “Existing RPS” scenario, assumes that state policies in place by mid-2016 stay on track. The other, a “High RE [Renewable Energy]” one, assumes that almost all states adopt RPSs with “relatively aggressive targets,” as some already have. It compares each of those scenarios to a “No RPS” one…Renewable energy’s public health and climate benefits way exceed any costs…The direct financial costs or savings in terms of electricity rates under these projections are minimal, particularly under the “Existing RPS” scenario. As the authors put it, for that scenario…” click here for more
