Growing Expert Consensus on Benefits of 80% Clean Electricity by 2030

Kate Tracy | September 27, 2021 | Webinars

On September 27, 2021, SACE hosted guest presenter Dan Esposito from Energy Innovation to discuss their new report that synthesizes 11 recent studies on achieving high levels of clean power on the grid and provides context on how this could be achieved through Congress’ proposed Clean Electricity Performance Program.

The report finds that the studies from researchers at prominent universities think tanks, nonprofits, and energy consultancies collectively affirm that achieving 80 percent clean electricity by 2030 is feasible, affordable, critical to meeting national climate goals, and deeply beneficial to the economy and public health—all without compromising power system reliability.

Dan was joined by SACE’s Director of Utility Reform, Maggie Shober who provided context for how Energy Innovation’s analysis relates to SACE’s recent analysis and translates into the Southeast.
