Study Assesses Potential of Renewable Energy in Power Sector
The author shows that renewable energies are best used in replacing fossil fuels in the power sector where it has the most effect in reducing CO2 emissions.
The author of the complete paper, for the purposes of this study, characterizes energies as brown, blue, or green. Brown energies are carbon dioxide (CO2)-emitting fossil fuels, such as gas, oil, or coal. Blue energies use carbon capture and storage (CCUS) technologies to remove the emitted CO2 from brown energies. Green energies are zero- or low-CO2-emitting renewable energies.
