Renewable Energy Resources and Climate Change


Item #d99apr41

In a letter to U.S. Department of Energy Assistant Secretary Dan Reicher, the Sun Day Campaign disputed statements recently attributed to DOE that nonhydro renewable energy is not expected to play a significant role in meeting Kyoto emission-reduction goals. The letter noted that renewable energy currently provides approximately 10% of the nation’s domestic energy production. It also argued that there is no compelling reason why new nonhydro renewable electric generating capacity could not substantially exceed 25,000 MW (DOE’s goal) by 2010, “which would play a significant role in meeting U.S. emission reduction goals under the terms of the Kyoto Protocol.”
