With USA’s claim to dominate the energy market in the coming future as the market is changing substantially and the leaders in energy are sure to be left behind, it can only be lagging its progress by such claims.
The United States has been a leader in energy consumption as well as production in the past years and now with major changes and transitions going on in the energy sector, it is baffling the States government which is resulting in sloppy remarks and poor execution of the plans. The United States while lagging in the renewable energy has ambitious goals to lead in the same, but the progress of these is being hindered as the plans are being executed hastily in order to keep the world domination of energy. However, the nation has made some good progress in the field over the last year as more and more renewable plants established, and some were even up and running in record times. Also, residential energy storage from renewable energy grew substantially in the second quarter of the year 2019. The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has issued a statement within which regulators have identified “the potential for electricity system resource adequacy shortages beginning in 2021.” Which is just a technical way of stating that there are going to be energy shortages in 2021.
This is a major concern for the nation as the nation will be making its shift towards clean energy which relies more on the electricity and US has not yet developed a fully sufficient infrastructure or grid to support this kind of energy system and demands.
