Plummeting costs for batteries and renewable energy sources make 90 percent renewable energy viable for the U.S. by 2035, according to a report, dubbed the 2035 Report. Based on the projections and data, cheap renewable energy and storage would keep costs consistent during the transition without building new fossil fuel plants. The transition to renewable energy does require policy reform to support potential job creation and reduced emissions. The MacArthur-supported report comes from a collaboration between grantee GridLab, Goldman School of Public Policy at University of California Berkeley, and Energy Innovation.
