Transitioning All Energy in 74 Metropolitan Areas, Including 30 Megacities, to 100% Clean and Renewable Wind, Water, and Sunlight (WWS)
To date, roadmaps and policies for transitioning from fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy have been developed for nations, provinces, states, cities, and towns in order to address air pollution,
Decarbonisation scenarios of the U.S. electricity system and their costs
Decarbonising electricity is crucial for climate change mitigation, while understanding its economic implications has been a challenge. Previous analyses primarily rely on levelised cost or
Sector coupling via hydrogen to lower the cost of energy system decarbonization
TLDR
A generalized modelling framework for co-optimizing energy infrastructure investment and operation across power and transportation sectors and the supply chains of electricity and H2, while accounting for spatio-temporal variations in energy demand and supply is developed.

Future cost-competitive electricity systems and their impact on US CO2 emissions
Carbon dioxide emissions from electricity generation are a major cause of anthropogenic climate change. The deployment of wind and solar power reduces these emissions, but is subject to the
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.
