Researchers on Avoiding Blackouts w/ Clean, Renewable Energy

Graphs showing timeline of energy sources for meeting all U.S. energy needs with wind, water and solar (WWS) power sources. The graph on left shows mix for 80% WWS by 2030 and 100% by 2035. The graph on right shows mix for is 80% by 2030 and 100% by 2050. The 2050 end points in both cases are cases examined in the study.

For some, visions of a future powered by clean, renewable energy are clouded by fears of blackouts driven by intermittent electricity supplies. Those fears are misplaced, according to a new Stanford University study that analyzes grid stability under multiple scenarios in which wind, water and solar en
