Could solar energy power nearly half of the US electric grid by 2050?

We use Lens Power to assess the feasibility of this ambitious target

The US Department of Energy recently released a report showing almost half of the country’s electricity could come from solar by 2050. Using  Wood Mackenzie's Lens Power platform, we assess the feasibility of this ambitious target by:

  • Exploring the US generation mix today
  • Discovering Wood Mackenzie’s current outlook out to 2050
  • Seeing how much capacity will be added each year
  • Examining LCOE over time
