Description

The Worldwatch Institute is working on the concept of Sustainable Energy Roadmaps. This roadmap methodology examines the physical, technical, socioeconomic, political and market potential for renewable energy development. The process can help governments, energy specialists, and the public map paths away from the import of carbon-based fuel sources. Using the roadmaps, countries may shift toward local energy resources that can provide jobs and boost economic development, while reducing pollution and climate change. The success of the roadmaps depends on the will of communities and governments around the world to commit to a clean energy future.
