Green Energy Policy
Renewable energy is electricity generated by fuel sources that restore themselves over a short period of time, which does not diminish. Renewables are considered to be preferable to the environment in comparison to conventional sources and in the replacement of fossil fuels have a significant potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. State governments identify renewable technologies separately for the functions of meeting state objectives and targets. Most include: solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, biogas, and low-impact hydroelectricity. The Center supports Green Energy initiatives including generating renewable energy, purchasing green power, and purchasing renewable energy. These initiatives benefit the climate, our health, and our economic security.
