Trump-proof power Research Brief

Nov 22, 2016 - 4:34pm

Research Brief explores why the switch to cleaner energy will continue in the face of a future Trump presidency.

Key points:

  1. US coal generation will continue to contract, due to economics and technology, regardless of changes to federal policy.
  2. Renewable energy generation will continue to grow in the US and globally, due to declining costs, improving technology, and policies to deliver benefits like pollution reduction and energy security.
  3. The US is unable to reverse global megatrends driving these shifts.
