Roadmap 2050: A pathway to decarbonize the United States power grid / AMO

As we told you a few months ago, AMO (the think-tank inside OMA) played an important role on Roadmap 2050, an initiative by the European Climate Foundation which looks to chart a policy roadmap for the next 5-10 years based on the European leaders’ commitment to an 80-95% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2050.

Based on this plan, AMO presents “Roadmap 2050: A pathway to decarbonize the United States power grid”. While ranked GDP, the US is ranked energy performance. As we see on the above video, an inefficient energy grid undermines any efforts to improve this, and local production of energy could be the answer.

This initiative is presented at the GE Ecoimagination Challenge, a $200 million call to action for businesses, entrepreneurs, innovators, and students to share their best ideas and come together to take on one of the world’s toughest challenges – building the next-generation power grid to meet the needs of the 21st century.

You can vote for this idea (and even discuss it with AMO on the comments), see others or even submit your own.
