This study presents roadmaps for each of the 50 United States to convert their all-purpose energy systems (for electricity, transportation, heating/cooling, and industry) to ones powered entirely by wind, water, and sunlight (WWS). The plans contemplate 80–85% of existing energy replaced by 2030 and 100% replaced by 2050. Conversion would reduce each state's end-use power demand by a mean of ∼39.3% with ∼82.4% of this due to the efficiency of electrification and the rest due to end-use energy… Expand
100% clean and renewable Wind, Water, and Sunlight (WWS) all-sector energy roadmaps for 53 towns and cities in North America
Abstract Towns and cities worldwide emit significant pollution and are also increasingly affected by pollution’s health and climate impacts. Local decision makers can alleviate these impacts byExpand
100% Clean and Renewable Wind, Water, and Sunlight All-Sector Energy Roadmaps for 139 Countries of the World

Low-cost solution to the grid reliability problem with 100% penetration of intermittent wind, water, and solar for all purposes
TLDR
A new grid integration model is used and low-cost, no-load-loss, nonunique solutions to this problem on electrification of all US energy sectors are found while accounting for wind and solar time series data from a 3D global weather model that simulates extreme events and competition among wind turbines for available kinetic energy.

Evaluation of a proposal for reliable low-cost grid power with 100% wind, water, and solar
TLDR
Policy makers should treat with caution any visions of a rapid, reliable, and low-cost transition to entire energy systems that relies almost exclusively on wind, solar, and hydroelectric power, and find significant shortcomings in the analysis of Jacobson et al. (2015). Expand
20% of US electricity from wind will have limited impacts on system efficiency and regional climate
TLDR
Climate impacts from WT are modest compared to regional changes induced by historical changes in land cover and to the global temperature perturbation induced by use of coal to generate an equivalent amount of electricity. Expand
Advanced Economic Control of Electricity-Based Space Heating Systems in Domestic Coalitions with Shared Intermittent Energy Resources
TLDR
This work proposes an effective heuristic heating schedule planning approach for collective AEC that has a complexity that scales in a linear and parallelizable manner with the coalition size, and enables AdaHeat+ to handle the distinct preferences, in balancing heating cost and thermal discomfort, of the households.
