Energy [R]evolution: A Sustainable Energy Outlook for the USA

We need to stop investing in a broken energy economy and kickstart a clean energy revolution. A report prepared by Greenpeace and the Global Wind Energy Council, Energy [R]evolution: A Sustainable USA Energy Outlook, is a comprehensive blueprint for building the clean energy economy of the future while leaving behind the dirty energy sources of the past.

The Greenpeace report, Energy [R]evolution: A Sustainable U.S.A. Energy Outlook, details how the United States can cut greenhouse gas emissions to the levels we must reach in order to prevent the worst effects of global warming and simultaneously build a sustainable economy.

Key principles of the Energy [R]evolution

The threat of climate change demands nothing short of an Energy Revolution - a transformation that has already started, as renewable energy markets exhibit huge and steady growth. At the core of this revolution will be a change in the way that energy is produced, distributed and consumed.

The five key principles behind this shift will be to:

  • Implement renewable solutions, especially through decentralized energy systems
  • Respect the natural limits of the environment
  • Phase out dirty, unsustainable energy sources
  • Create greater equity in the use of resources
  • Decouple economic growth from the consumption of fossil fuels
