Renewables’ growth is too slow to meet the Administration’s carbon goals, according to the American Clean Power Association

Growth of renewable energy sources is too slow to meet the Biden Administration’s climate goals. That is according to a market report by the American Clean Power Association.

Last year, the overall rate of renewable power did not change from 2020, and as it stands, the current amount of installations can power about 6.6 million homes. That is just about a third of what is needed to reach a carbon-free grid by 2035.

Price hikes, shipping issues, and labor abuse allegations in China are all contributing to the slow progress.

As Biden considers tariffs on solar panels from Southeast Asia, a group of bipartisan governors asked him for economic analysis of how this could hurt our businesses, workers, and families.
