    U.S. New Energy Boom Gets Bigger

    Solar and wind energy propel growth in US renewables; Capacity has grown threefold in the past decade, but the country still lags behind Europe and China in sustainable energy.

    Quirin Schiermier, 14 February 2017 (Nature)

    “…Energy capacity from sustainable energy sources such as wind, solar, biomass and geothermal reached a record 141 gigawatts (GW) in the country at the end of 2016…Hydropower, the most prevalent renewable in the United States, added another 103 GW…[The combined new wind and solar capacity] has increased almost fivefold since 2008, from 26 to 123 GW [according to The Sustainable Energy In America Factbook]…Wind accounted for 83 GW...But US wind capacity still lags way behind that of the European Union and China, which both had more than 140 GW installed by 2015…The increasing use of solar photovoltaics and cells drove most of the growth in US low-carbon energy in recent years…And thanks to the increasing decarbonization of the power sector and improved energy efficiency generally, US greenhouse-gas emissions plunged to a 25-year low in 2016.” click here for more
