Renewables Made Up Half of New Power Installed in U.S. Last Year

A new study by the tramadol online pharmacy apo address Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century (REN21), a UN-backed organization, found that in 2009, half of new power generation capacity built in the U.S. was in the form of buy levitra canada renewable energy.

And we're not alone.  In Europe, renewables accounted for 60 percent of new power generation capacity in 2009, and globally, renewables now comprise 25 percent of power capacity and delivered 18 percent of the world's electricity in 2009.

China has made the greatest strides by adding 37 GW of renewable energy and leads the world in the manufacturing of both solar panels and wind turbines.

Though these numbers are exciting, renewables still only account for a small fraction of total electricity produced in the U.S.  We have a long way to go, but at least we're heading in the right direction.

@Prabhat Roy: Thank you for posting, and I know English is not your first language, so you are courageous to post.

I think renewables+nuclear are the viagra headaches way to go for the future to rid us of coal power in the long run.

New atomic power plants are Soooo much safer, and even Mother Earth Jones magazine had a great article on how nuclear really can be part of our solution.

Hey Doc, pull your finger out of your ring! Nukes are mined (releasing CO2), transported (releasing CO2), refined (releasing CO2), used in expensive hard to protect against corruption and terrorism facilities (releasing CO2), and leave nuclear waste which last longer than religion (releasing CO2 to transport and store for ever). So nukes aren't green and rx cod tramadol also are dual use (can be used to make the worlds most powerful weapons.
Green electricity is the future and this is great news and it doesn't include nukes which are unwanted, unnecessary and never safe.
Go solar, wind, wave and tidal!
