President Barack Obama is ordering the federal government to nearly triple to 20 percent its use of renewable sources for electricity by 2020.
EIA’s earlier-issued “Electric Power Monthly” revealed that renewables had provided 14.20% of net electrical generation during the first six months of the year.
Clean energy and sustainable transportation projects launched this year created nearly 40,000 new green jobs in America during the second quarter (2Q) of 2013.
The future appears to be bright for renewable energy sources like solar, wind, and water. In fact, power generation from such renewables will exceed that of gas and nuclear by 2016, according to a report published Wednesday by the International Energy Agency (IEA).
