New Study Shows Renewable Energy Preferable to Natural Gas for Meeting Climate Targets in Clean Power Plan

Jan. 27, 2016 -- PSE Healthy Energy and UC Berkeley released a study today that analyzes the ability for the U.S. to meet the greenhouse gas emissions reductions in the Clean Power Plan under different energy scenarios and upstream methane leakage rates. The study finds that increased deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiency is the best way to meet or even exceed the Plan's 2030 targets. Recent scientific measurements of methane leakage from the natural gas sector have shown higher rates of leakage than those utilized in official inventories. Due to the strong climate warming effect of methane, states that plan to switch from coal to natural gas rather than renewables in order to reduce emissions from electric generation risk failure to achieve real and meaningful emissions reductions. Click here to access the study.
