According to studies by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, renewable energy will be able to satisfy the demand of the United States in just a few decades.
This conclusion is based on a report that states that with an increasingly flexible electric grid, the renewable electric generation already in use today could supply 80% of all electric needs by 2050. According to the studies conducted by the NREL, the variety of renewable energy sources can support a diverse assortment of technologies, greatly reducing the green house emissions, as well as cutting back on water consumption. This is direct contradiction of claims from the fossil fuel industry that renewable energy can never meet the demands for energy from the American public.
The NREL makes no mention of LENR technology. However, if you figure in the low cost and tremendous conversion rate of the 600C E-Cat, the date for the transfer of power seems to be much closer than 2050. With 3 E-Cats in the works, a full spectrum of power can be available for just about every application. Since the domestic model and the 1MW units should be on the market within the next year, it could very well be that the conversion can be completed on an individual level and with corporate uses much sooner than 30+ years in the future.
What we get from this report is that the NREL is EXPECTING the U.S. to switch to renewable fuels in the next thirty-something years, which, in itself, is encouraging.
