Report: US Climate Alliance on track to meet Paris accord goals
New York, California and Washington state and the other 11 states in the United States Climate Alliance are on track to meet their share of the goals outlined in the Paris climate accord due, in part, to local renewable energy targets and electric vehicles, according to a report from research firm Rhodium Group. Vibrant Clean Energy CEO Christopher Clack said, however, that a national grid would be the best option for decarbonization because a states-only approach could lead to a system unable to support large wind and solar capacities.
