WASHINGTON (May 12, 2016)— Four non-governmental organizations have formed the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA), a new coalition to empower multinational companies to transform electricity systems with renewable energy. REBA aims to help facilitate and deploy 60 gigawatts (GWs) of new corporate renewable energy in the United States by 2025.
New WRI analysis shows that Wisconsin can reduce its power sector emissions 21 percent below 2012 levels by 2030 just by following through on existing clean energy policies and making more efficient use of power plants. With a few additional steps, the state can far exceed the emissions reductions required by the Clean Power Plan.
New WRI analysis examines the vital role building efficiency can play in shaping sustainable cities of the future. When done right, energy-efficient buildings can generate several social, environmental and economic benefits.
A press teleconference on Thursday, May 12 will introduce the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA), which aims to help facilitate and deploy 60 GW of new corporate renewable energy capacity by 2025. Energy experts from Facebook, Invenergy, Microsoft and World Resources Institute will discuss the problems companies face and how Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance will help scale up renewables on the grid.
While the U.S. Supreme Court temporarily halted implementation of the Clean Power Plan (CPP), it’s in states’ own best interests to continue moving forward with compliance. New analysis finds Illinois can get 75 percent of the way to its CPP emissions-reduction target just through its existing clean energy policies and opportunities.
One of China's major challenges in its shift to low-carbon electricity is curtailment, which means that power grids don't use renewable power even when wind and solar plants are capable of producing it. Better-designed and -implemented policies can help.
This fact sheet examines how Illinois can use its existing policies and infrastructure to meet its emission standards under the Clean Power Plan while minimizing compliance costs, ensuring reliability, and harnessing economic opportunities. Read about additional analyses in WRI's fact sheet...
More than 20 countries have "decoupled" their carbon emissions from GDP, showing that economies can grow while shifting to a low-carbon pathway. Nate Aden explains.
