An Impartial Review of Mark Jacobson's Latest Book

Thursday, April 29, 2021 (Listed under Environment)

When you've followed the evolving research of a leading clean energy expert and become a supporter of his vision for a global clean energy transition, it should come as no surprise that I was eager to crack open Mark Jacobson's 2021 book release, 100% Clean, Renewable Energy and Storage for Everything.

I've known Mark for over ten years, even before I learned of his audacious roadmap for powering New York state with 1% renewable energy. Little did I know then that my home state would be the first of 50 U.S. states to be mapped for renewable energy by Mark and his team of students at Stanford University (see Mark's abbreviated bio, below).

50 states led to 143 countries—all in the course of a decade. The plans, available at The Solutions Project's “Clean Energy” link, reveal the unique mix of wind, water and sun technologies capable of powering states, countries and even select U.S. cities. Wind, Water and Sun (aka WWS) include wind power; waterpower from tides, rivers, and subsurface water (geothermal water); and solar power.

So just how did Jacobson, an athletic, brainy competitive tennis player growing up in 1970s California decide to change the way that energy is made and distributed worldwide?

To find out, check out my review of Mark's book is posted here, on Renewable Energy World.
