Policy: Clean Energy Friendly Ohio
Ohio policymakers and citizens alike want a set of renewable energy and efficiency policies that maximize financial benefits to the state and also lead us down a path of sustainability.
An analysis by the Greenlink Group finds that we can have both.
They produced several scenarios demonstrating how Ohio can meet potential federal carbon reduction regulations while providing financial benefits to the state. Each of the scenarios is based on clear trends and achievable targets.
Three approaches were outlined: Accelerated Efficiency, Intermediate Pathway and Expanded Renewables.
The analysis found that the Accelerated Efficiency scenario offers the most economic and environmental benefits of the three options, while Expanded Renewables offers the greatest economic development opportunities.
