To meet its climate goals and bring emissions down to net-zero by 2050, the US needs to shift to carbon-free power as fast as possible. While federal efforts to clean up the grid have stalled, Third Way analysis shows that states, major cities, and utilities have literally doubled-down on policies and targets to get the job done. We took the data and created an interactive dashboard to help spot important trends that could be expanded across the country. Two essential themes stood out to us:

  1. Clean energy commitments are rapidly gaining popularity. Our research identified a total of 121 portfolio standards and other commitments to clean energy since 1983. But a whopping 58% of them were adopted just since 2016.
  2. Climate leaders want more technology options to choose from. Prior to 2016, 90% of commitments were exclusive to renewable energy. That trend has almost completely reversed since then, with 65% of states, utilities, and major cities now embracing “technology-inclusive” commitments like clean energy standards that take advantage of nuclear power, carbon capture, and other carbon-free options.

It makes sense that these trends are catching on. Communities across America are increasingly feeling the impacts of climate change and demanding rapid action. At the same time, governments and utilities are becoming keenly aware of the challenges of getting to zero emissions in a few short decades using only renewable power. Incorporating additional tools like nuclear and carbon capture brings us closer to full decarbonization and significantly reduces the cost of getting there.

Play around with the dashboard below and see what other patterns jump out at you. If you’ve got a hot take, we’ve also included shareable versions of each graphic below the dashboard that you can send to your social media networks.

Clean Energy Targets are Trending

Methodology:

This interactive dashboard displays decarbonization and clean or renewable energy targets, announcements, and policies enacted by states, cities, and utilities.

  • States: We included all state renewable portfolio standards and clean energy standards and renewable and clean energy targets. We only included updates to existing policies if they increased the overall stringency of the policy. We did not include zero emission credit policies for existing nuclear, credits or subsidies for other clean energy technologies, or carbon pricing policies.
  • Cities: We included all cities that are among the 50 most populous and that have city-wide decarbonization or clean or renewable energy goals. We excluded cities that only had goals to decarbonize city-owned buildings. We only included the most recent goal for each city.
  • Utilities: We included all utilities that have official statements or commitments to decarbonize or increase their share of clean or renewable energy. We only included updates to existing policies if they increased the overall stringency of the policy.

The types of commitments have been divided into technology-inclusive or renewables-only categories. Technology-inclusive means that the commitment is open to all clean energy or zero carbon technologies. Renewables-only means that the commitment is only open to the select renewable resources defined by each state, city, or utility.

The types of commitments have also been divided into non-binding targets or binding commitments. Non-binding targets are aspirational goals, targets, pledges, or executive orders. Binding commitments are policies signed into law.

When unable to find the exact day that a commitment was made, we entered the first of that month.

For both maps, the color of a state is determined by its most ambitious and recent state level commitment - yellow for renewable-only and teal for technology-inclusive. To create the second map, we used the utility shapefiles from the Homeland Infrastructure Foundation-Level Data: Electric Retail Service Territories. The color of the utilities does not specify whether a utility is technology-inclusive or not.

Our initial research began with Clean Air Task Force’s state and utility targets fact sheet, National Resources Defense Council’s blog on utilities, Sierra Club’s Ready for 100 Commitments, Center For Climate and Energy Solutions’ U.S. State Electricity Portfolio Standards Map, National Conference of State Legislatures’ State Renewable Portfolio Standards and Goals, and North Carolina State University’s Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency.

The sources for each commitment can be found below:
