EIA & FERC Data Suggest Renewables Are Now on Track to Provide 33-50% of U.S. Electricity by 2030 - But Biden's Goal of 80% Remains Possible.

An analysis conducted by the SUN DAY Campaign of data released over the past decade by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) as well as near-term forecasts by both agencies suggest continued strong growth by renewable energy sources. However, unless accelerated, that growth will fall short of President Biden's clean power goals for 2030.
EIA's data from the past ten years indicate renewables could be one-third of U.S. electrical generation in 2030.
