Experts believe green energy could surpass fossil fuels in next decades

As most renewable energy options continue to be supported on the grassroots and national levels, more industry experts are expecting renewable electricity choice to outpace fossil fuel counterparts by 2030.
A recent report from the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration stated that solar and wind offerings could provide the 48 contiguous states with upward of 70 percent of their electricity needs within 20 years. Models for fossil fuels will continue to fall, with only 15 percent of needs met by their once-dominating presence in the energy field.
The projections came from the results of NOAA's Earth System Research Laboratory's Renewable Energy study. Because the study looked at the use of smart gridding, the ESRL estimates are based on states' ability to better utilize the excess power of some regions.
For example, according to the Vancouver Sun, while most of the Midwest needs electricity during the evening hours, this is typically when the energy captured by wind turbines is falling. With bigger grids, however, the more effective these technologies can be at allocating the energy for when and where it's most needed.
