Achieving 80 Percent GHG Reduction in New England by 2050

If New England wants to make good on their greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals, they will need to keep their foot on the clean electricity development accelerator over the next critical decades to 2050. The current pace of adding more solar PV, onshore and offshore wind, battery storage, etc., is simply insufficient. However, if New England keeps growing these new industries at roughly the current rate, the region may have a chance to achieve the commitments made to decarbonize our economies by 2050 and do its part to reduce the risks of catastrophic climate change. And, in the process, it will create a substantial and sustainable new green economy.
