Groundbreaking new study proposes New York's energy to be produced from 100% sustainable sources
Stanford University Professor Mark Z. Jacobson, who explores and analyzes air quality, global warming and large-scale renewable energy solutions through elegant mathematical models, has already connected the eco-economic dots that Obama omitted. Jacobson, director of Stanford's Atmosphere/Energy Program and a senior fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment and the Precourt Institute for Energy, is motivated by the findings of his recent report, which reveal, he says, "the technical and economic feasibility of repowering an individual state for all purposes primarily with wind, water and sun (WWS)."
Jacobson co-authored the report, entitled, "Examining the Feasibility of Converting New York State's All-Purpose Energy Infrastructure to One Using Wind, Water and Sunlight" with Cornell University Professor of Engineering, Anthony Ingraffea, Cornell Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Robert W. Howarth and University of California at Davis scientist Mark Delucchi, among others. Their findings are published in the Journal Energy Policy.
