According to estimates, only in 2023, the use of solar and wind energy prevented 380 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions. By the end of 2023, the United States had a total of over 110 gigawatts of clean energy projects in operation.
Speaking specifically of the USA, from 2011 to 2022, wind and solar energy increased nearly fourfold. Nevertheless, there is still a long way to go by 2050 to achieve the goal of zero emissions.
This month, Fast Company published the Top 10 most innovative energy companies that are helping to accelerate the transition to sustainable energy.
Here is the list:
Twelve - For transforming CO2 into petrochemicals, minus the fossil fuels
BlocPower - For unlocking efficiency retrofits in low-income neighborhoods
