An AEE and AWEA funded survey conducted by the Analysis Group comes in advance of a DOE study that is anticipated to blame renewable energy for the decline in coal industry success. AEE CEO Graham Richard is quoted. From the story:
The report, commissioned by the nonprofit Advanced Energy Economy and the American Wind Energy Association, comes in advance of a new Energy Department review of what Secretary Rick Perry has termed "critical issues" facing the U.S. electric power sector.
“Advanced Energy Economy CEO Graham Richard said in a statement that far from eroding baseload power, energy innovation, combined with smart government policies, has created "a more diverse fuel mix, a more reliable grid, and lower electricity costs" for consumers across the nation.”
