Renewable Energy

Renewable energy is the key to making the most immediate impact on our greenhouse gas emission and meeting our energy needs. Today, solar and wind installations account for 11% of energy consumption in the U.S. and have the potential to reach 30% in this decade. We aim to enable a future where, by 2050, 100% of energy for electricity will come from renewable sources. This will require intensive research efforts and advances in knowledge, as well as overcoming challenges in production, storage, transmission, and distribution across scales never before attempted—all of which the Ralph S. O’Connor Sustainable Energy Institute is positioned to lead.
