GLRPPR Sector Resource: Energy Self-Reliant States: Homegrown Renewable Power

Title:
Energy Self-Reliant States: Homegrown Renewable Power

Abstract:
How much energy could be generated by states tapping into internal renewable resources? To date, no study has addressed this question comprehensively. This report is a first attempt to do so. The data in this report, while preliminary, suggest that at least half of the fifty states could meet all their internal energy needs from renewable energy generated inside their borders, and the vast majority could meet a significant percentage.
