In the pursuit of total energy dominance, the United States claims to take whatever it takes to achieve the goal of energy dominance. But is it capable of doing so?
The United States is a huge economy with huge power consumption demands and most of the nation’s energy needs are met by fossil fuel energy production means as much as 80 percent to be precise. And this was in 2018 not even 3 or 4 years ago. With the officials claiming to do whatever it takes to go 100 percent renewable and still dominate the energy market, we expected the nation to make huge changes to its energy policies following the Paris Climate Agreement which urged the nations to rethink their energy consumption as well as the ways of generating it. Although the United States claims to be making renewable energy plants there isn’t any substantial move from the government that would make us believe that the nation has taken a huge step in the direction of going clean with the energy sector. Although there have been solar projects that are turning into fully operational plants this year and many biogas projects in the developmental stage, we cannot say that the government is doing this. Most of these projects are private sector projects with little to no government funding’s.
With the huge claims of the nation, the steps taken towards going 100 renewables and clean seem very very small, so small that it can sometimes even be seen as no effort from their side. If the United States really wants to dominate the energy market it needs to show that crave it more than anyone else.
