Long-planned Alaska LNG Project Wouldn’t Increase Greenhouse Gas Emissions, DOE Says

Long-planned Alaska LNG Project Wouldn’t Increase Greenhouse Gas Emissions, DOE Says

The Alaska liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal project would not have an impact on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions if constructed, according to the latest analysis from the Department of Energy (DOE). DOE in late June published its draft supplemental environmental impact statement (EIS) for the Alaska LNG project (DOE/EIS-0512-S1). Researchers found that with mitigations already…

Solar Could Power 40% of U.S. Electricity Needs by 2035, DOE Study Finds

Solar Could Power 40% of U.S. Electricity Needs by 2035, DOE Study Finds

A report released last week by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) suggests that by 2035 solar energy has the potential to power 40% of the nation’s electricity, or the equivalent of all the nation’s homes. Getting to a 40% supply share, however, would involve a dramatic increase in the deployment of solar. In 2020,…
