This report by Goldman School of Public Policy uses the latest renewable energy and battery cost data to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of achieving 80 percent clean (carbon-free) electricity in the United States by 2030. Two central cases are simulated using state-of-the-art capacity-expansion and production-cost models: 

  • The No New Policy case assumes continuation of current state and federal policies.
  • The 80% Clean case requires that a national 80 percent clean electricity share is reached by 2030, along with aggressive transportation electrification.
