(KCPW News) A two-year study commissioned by the Healthy Environment Alliance of Utah has a much more optimistic outlook for Utah’s renewable energy resources than we’ve seen in the past. If the right resources are developed, it says the state could get nearly 100 percent of its electricity from renewable sources like wind, solar, and geothermal by the year 2050. The report, eUtah: A Renewable Energy Roadmap, was authored by Dr. Arjun Makhijani, President of the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research in Maryland. KCPW’s Jeff Robinson asked him how he gathered the data for the study.
Dr. Makhijani will present his research at HEAL Utah’s Fall Fundraiser, tonight at 6:30 at the I.J. and Jeanne Wagner Jewish Community Center in Salt Lake City.
