After a year of fires, hurricanes, and floods, some sunny news is on the horizon. With global warming quickly affecting our livelihoods, the Biden administration has come out with some strong forecasts to slow down climate change. With this accelerated timeline, the renewable energy plan could make a huge impact in just the next 15 years.
According to The Washington Post, a recent study from the Energy Department on the future of solar energy shows how the United States can scale up the production of solar panels. The aim is to transition the country from its current solar usage of about three percent to a lofty 45 percent by 2050.
Similarly, the Biden administration has put forward a goal of 100% clean energy use in the U.S. by 2035. Clean energy includes solar energy, as well as wind, biomass, and geothermal energy production.
