The Solutions Project shows exactly how world can reach 100% renewable energy


Team of researchers at Stanford developed interactive maps and plans to show how 139 different countries could practically go 100% renewable.
By clicking on one of the nations on the map, presented on the project's website, anyone can see (like on the image above) which future energy mix will theoretically be the best to achieve the zero-emission target for each of these 139 countries, as well as numbers related to newly created employment, resulted from the switch to renewable energy, current and future energy costs, and health benefits resulting from the proposed transition. For the United States, The Solutions Project even created a plan for each separate state, showing at an even more detailed level what a transition to clean energy could look like for the country. Read more at http://cleantechnica.com
