The IRA provides money for building clean energy generation, but the permitting process could slow progress. We look at several interesting proposals that show a path to an energy transition that is both rapid and just.
The reading list:
- Revkin on permitting challenges
- RMI on Brightfields
- WaPo on agrivoltaics
- LA Times on protecting sensitive land
- Nature Conservancy study
- NREL on Agrivoltaics
- WBUR on an off-shore "backbone" for wind energy
Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon to safeguard our collective future.
Thanks for listening.
