People at all levels of the green power field are expressing confidence in the future of alternative energy. But they also see a tremendous challenge if New York is going to reach its goal to have 50% of electricity from renewable sources by the year 2030. David Mooney is Director at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Colorado. He says most of the new generation of electricity is green.
“In 4 of the last 5 years, new capacity additions, the majority have been wind and solar. 63% is the wind and solar, 66% here, and going back to 2012 where there’s 53%.”
