Webinar Renewable and Decarbonization Future in the USThe Plan and Status

7 December 2021

in Japanese

Since the Biden administration took office in January this year, the US has been rapidly strengthening its climate policies calling for an emissions-free power sector by 2035. However, the share of electricity from renewable sources is still only 21% today, which is about the same as Japan. How can the US meet its goals and achieve a decarbonized future? Two US energy experts spoke on the latest status of the energy transition in the US and strategies for the future.
