The United States Can Transition to 100% Renewable Energy by 2050

This [Stanford] study develops consistent roadmaps for each of the 50 United States to convert their energy infrastructures for all purposes into clean and sustainable ones powered by wind, water, and sunlight (WWS) producing electricity and electrolytic hydrogen… The [proposed] timeline for conversion: 80–85% to be WWS by 2030 and 100% by 2050.
