The Solutions Project: 100% Clean Energy Vision

What would 100% renewable energy look like where you live? This interactive world map encourages readers to explore the possibilities of a green energy transition by laying out a projected renewable energy mix for the year 2050, including residential and commercial solar, wind, water, and geothermal energy. There are a number of ways to interact with the map. Readers can use the bar at the top of the map to toggle between "Countries," "Cities," and "U.S. states," then click on regions on the map for details. Alternatively, users can click "List" on the left side to scroll through different visions, from San Jose (26% solar plants) to Montreal (36% offshore wind). Each vision estimates the number of jobs that would be created, health and energy cost savings, lives saved by reducing air pollution, and other encouraging metrics. Even better, they can be downloaded as colorful PDFs, making it easy to teach and share. The Solutions Project also shares energy-related stories on its Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages (@100isnow on all platforms). Its YouTube channel hosts an eight-part series, "Climate Curious," exploring how climate issues intersect with antiracism, food and nutrition, student activism, policy, and more. The Solutions Project is funded by private, corporate, and institutional donors that are listed in the "Who We Are" section under "Our Funders."
