USA can run on 100% renewable energy in 2050

It is entirely possible for the US to run on 100% renewable energy in 2050 according to a new study.

Mark Z. Jacobson from Stanford University and his research team outlined the changes in infrastructure and energy consumption that each American state has to undergo to achieve this transition to clean energy

The researchers have looked at how wind, solar, geothermal, hydroelectric, and even small amounts of tidal and wave, could contribute to the energy demands.

Using this information, researchers laid out a clear plan for each state to make an 80% transition to renewable energy by 2030, and reach 100% by 2050.
