Less than 40% of U.S. power generation is currently from carbon-free sources, including renewables, hydroelectric and nuclear power.
According to S&P Global Market Intelligence, natural gas and coal generation combine for nearly 60% of the U.S. power mix in 2021. To achieve carbon-free generation by 2035, it is estimated that 4.8 billion MWh of natural gas, coal and oil generation would theoretically need to be replaced by 2035.
