Examples of 100% Renewable Energy Goals Examples of 100% Renewable Energy Goals

The Renewables 100 Policy Institute discussed 100 percent renewable energy targets in at least one sector during a conference session at Intersolar North America 2015. 100 percent renewable energy covers the following energy demands: electricity power, heating/cooing, and transportation. Currently, there are 55 cities, 60 regions and 9 utilities across the world that have officially established 100 percent renewable energy goals. Largely driven by government policies, renewable energy developments have been implemented to gain independence from imported fossil fuels, encourage economic growth, and protect the environment. The state of Hawaii heavily depends on imported fossil fuels and recently increased its state Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) to 100 percent by 2045 from 40 percent by 2030.
