July 12 | 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM (add to my calendar)

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) recently released a groundbreaking study exploring these questions and more. The Renewable Electricity Futures Study examines the implications, challenges, and feasibility of generating 80 percent of U.S. electricity from renewable energy by 2050. The Union of Concerned Scientists invite you to join two of the report's authors—Maureen Hand and Trieu Mai—in a briefing and discussion of the report's key findings and its technical, economic, and environmental implications.

According to this comprehensive analysis, renewable energy technologies that are commercially available today, together with a more flexible electric system, are more than adequate to supply 80 percent of total U.S. electricity use in 2050. The study shows that achieving this level of renewable energy would result in deep cuts in electric sector heat-trapping emissions, other harmful pollutants, and water use.

A question-and-answer session will follow the 40-minute presentation. Steve Clemmer, director of energy research and analysis at the Union of Concerned Scientists, will moderate.
