The Solutions Project: a roadmap to sustainable energy

Here’s a really ambitious project with a great vision! The Solutions Project has developed detailed plans to transform the energy infrastructure of each of the 50 states from fossil fuels to 100 percent renewable resources by 2050.

“In June of 2011, we were sitting around a table talking about our opposition to extreme energy extraction. We created The Solutions Project. Our Mission: Use the powerful combination of science + business + culture to accelerate the transition to 100% clean, renewable energy.”

The project has an online interactive roadmap, tailored to maximize the resource potential of each state. Hovering a cursor over California, for example, reveals that the Golden State can meet virtually all of its power demands (transportation, electricity, heating, etc.) in 2050 by switching to a clean technology portfolio that is 55 percent solar, 35 percent wind (on- and offshore), 5 percent geothermal and 4 percent hydroelectric.
