How to Build a Net-Zero America
A Princeton research study released last month provides a blueprint for the wholesale transformation of America’s energy system to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions over thirty years. Net-Zero America: Potential Pathways, Infrastructure and Impacts has immediate and practical implications for government and energy decision makers in the fight against climate change.
The study provides unprecedented detail about what needs to be built, when and where across key sectors and on a fine geographical scale. It also provides robust modeling of costs, changes in employment, implications for incumbent industries, and impacts on air pollution and public health.
Two of the report’s authors, Jesse Jenkins and Eric Larson, outline affordable paths to a carbon-neutral future.
