The endeavor to use 100% renewable energy for electricity, heating and cooling, and transport is motivated by global warming, pollution and other environmental issues, as well as economic and energy security concerns. Shifting the total global primary energy supply to renewable sources requires a transition of the energy system. In 2013, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is the most important global energy demand. Renewable energy has grown up much faster than even advocates anticipated. In 2014, renewable sources such as wind, geothermal, solar, biomass, and burnt waste provided 19% of the total energy consumed worldwide, with approximately half of that coming from traditional use of biomass. The most important sector is with a share of 22.8%, with a share of 16.6%, followed by wind with 3.1%. According to the REN21 2017 global status report, these figures had increased to 19.3% for energy in 2015 and 24.5% for electricity in 2016. There are many places around the world with renewable energy. At the national level, at least 30 nations have more than 20% of the energy supply. Professors S. Pacala and Robert H. Socolow of Princeton University have developed a series of “climate stabilization wedges” that can be largest number of their “wedges.” Mark Z. Jacobson, Professor of Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University and Director of its Atmosphere and Energy Program, says that it is possible to produce energy and energy. Be replaced by 2050. Barriers to implementing the renewable energy plan. Jacobson says that energy costs today, and that they should be similar to today’s cost-effective strategies. The main obstacle against this scenario is the lack of political will. Jacobson’s conclusions have been disputed by other researchers. Similarly, in the United States,
Using 100% renewable energy was first suggested in a paper published by Danish physicist Bent Sørensen, which was followed by several other proposals. In 1976 energy policy analyst Amory Lovins coined the term “soft energy path” to describe an alternative future where energy efficiency and renewable energy sources steadily replace a centralized energy system based on fossil and nuclear fuels. In 1998 the first detailed analysis of scenarios with very high shares of renewables were published. These were followed by the first detailed 100% scenarios. In 2006 a PhD thesis was published by Czisch in which it was shown that in a 100% renewable energy scenario in Europe and North Africa. In the same year, Danish Energy Professor Henrik Lund published a first paper in which he addresses the optimum combination of renewables, which is followed by several papers on the transition to 100% renewable energy in Denmark. Since then Lund has been publishing several papers on 100% renewable energy. After 2009 publications, we have been working on a 100% scenario for Europe, America, Australia and other parts of the world. Even in the early 21st century it was extraordinary for scientists and decision-makers to consider the concept of 100 percent renewable electricity. However, renewable energy has been so fast that things have recently changed since: Solar photovoltaic modules have dropped to 75 per cent in price. Current scientific and technological advances in the laboratory suggest that they will be so important that the main cost of going solar on residential and commercial buildings will be installed. On-shore wind power is spreading over all continents and is economically competitive with fossil and nuclear power in several regions. Concentrated solar thermal power (CST) has been reduced to 50 per cent. Renewable energy has grown up much faster than even advocates had anticipated. Wind turbines generate 39 percent of Danish electricity, and Denmark has many biogas digesters and waste-to-energy plants as well. Together, wind and biomass provide 44% of the electricity consumed by the country s six million inhabitants. In 2010, Portugal’s 10 million people produced more than half their electricity from indigenous renewable energy resources. Spain’s 40 million inhabitants meet one-third of their electrical needs from renewables. Renewable energy has a history of strong public support. In America, for example, a 2013 Gallup survey showed that two in three Americans want the US to increase domestic energy production using solar power (76%), wind power (71%), and natural gas (65%). Far fewer want more petroleum production (46%) and more nuclear power (37%). Least favored is coal, with about one in three Americans favoring it. REN21 says renewable energy at the national level, at least 30 nations around the world are more energy efficient than 20% of energy supply. National renewable energy markets are projected to continue to grow strongly in the coming decade and beyond, and have some 20% by 2020 target for the European Union. Some countries have much higher up-term policy targets of up to 100% renewables. Outside Europe, a diverse group of 20 or more other countries target renewable energy shares in the 2020-2030 time frame that range from 10% to 50%. Nuclear power involves substantial accident risks (eg, Fukushima Nuclear Disaster, Chernobyl disaster) and the unsolved problem of safe long-term high-level radioactive waste management, and carbon capture and storage. These constraints also include 100% renewable energy. A well established body of academic literature has been written over the past decade. In recent years, more detailed analyzes have emerged from government and industry sources. The incentive to use 100% renewable energy is created by global warming and economic and economic concerns, post peak oil. The first country to propose 100% renewable energy was Iceland, in 1998. Albania, Iceland, and Paraguay 100% renewable energy was Iceland, in 1998. Albania, Iceland, and Paraguay % from hydroelectricity, Iceland 72% hydro and 28% geothermal). Norway 97 percent from hydropower. Iceland proposed using hydrogen for transport and its fishing fleet. Australia proposed biofuel for those elements of transportation. The road map for the United States, commitment by Denmark, and Vision 2050 for Europe 2050 timeline for converting to 100% renewable energy, later reduced to 2040 in 2011. Zero Carbon Britain 2030 proposed eliminating carbon emissions in Britain by 2030 by transitioning to renewable energy. In 2015, Hawaii enacted a law that the Renewable Portfolio Standard will be 100 percent by 2045. This is often confused with renewable energy. If it is produced on the grid is 65 GWh from fossil fuel and 35 GWh from renewable energy and rooftop off grid solar produces 80 GWh of renewable energy then the total renewable energy is 115 GWh and the total electricity on the grid is 100 GWh. Then the RPS is 115 percent. It is estimated that the world will spend an extra $ 8 trillion over the next 25 years to prolong the use of non-renewable resources, a cost that would be eliminated by transitioning instead to 100% renewable energy. Research that has been published in Energy Policy suggests that it is possible and affordable, but requires political support. It would require many more wind turbines and solar power systems but would not use bioenergy.
The Fourth Revolution: Energy is a German documentary film released in 2010. It shows the vision of a global society, which lives in a world where the energy is produced 100% with renewable energies, showing a complete reconstruction of the economy, to reach this Goal. In 2011, Hermann Scheer wrote the book The Energy Imperative: 100 Percent Renewable Now, published by Routledge. Reinventing Fire is a book by Amory Lovins released in October 2011. Lovins says there will be a $ 5 trillion saving and a faster-growing economy. This can be done with the profitable commercialization of existing energy-saving technologies, through market forces, led by business. Bill Clinton says the book is a “wise, detailed and comprehensive blueprint”. The first paragraph of the preface says: Imagine fuel without fear. No climate change. No oil spills, dead coal miners, dirty air, devastated lands, lost wildlife. No energy poverty. No oil-fed wars, tyrannies, or terrorists. Nothing to run out. Nothing to cut off. Nothing to worry about. Just energy abundance, benign and affordable, for all, for ever. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is the most important global energy demand. In a 2011 review of the future of renewable energy growth, the report noted that the majority of renewable energy sources are more than 17% of total energy by 2030, and 27% by 2050; the highest forecast projected 43% supplied by renewables by 2030 and 77% by 2050. In 2011, the International Energy Agency has said that solar energy technologies, in its many forms, can make considerable contributions to solving some of the most urgent problems in the world: The development of affordable, inexhaustible and clean solar energy technologies will have huge longer-term benefits. It will increase countries’ energy security through reliance on an indigenous, inexhaustible and mostly import-independent resource, enhance sustainability, reduce pollution, and lower fossil fuel prices. These advantages are global. Hence the additional costs of the incentives for early deployment should be considered learning investments; they must be widely used. In 2011, Mark Z. Jacobson, a professor of engineering at Stanford University, and research scientist Mark A. Delucchi, about changing our energy supply mix and “Providing all global energy with wind, water, and solar power” “. The articles analyze the feasibility of providing worldwide energy for electric power, transportation, and heating / cooling from wind, water, and sunlight (WWS), which are safe clean options. Inpart I, Jacobson and Delucchi discuss WWS energy system characteristics, WWS resource availability, WWS requirements needed, and material requirements. They estimate that 3,800,000 5 MW wind turbines, 5350 100 MW geothermal power plants, and 270 new 1300 MW hydroelectric power plants will be required. In terms of solar power, an additional 49, 000 300 MW concentrating solar plants, 40,000 300 MW solar photovoltaic power plants, and 1.7 billion 3 kW rooftop photovoltaic systems will also be needed. Such an extensive WWS infrastructure could decrease world power demand by 30%. In Part II, Jacobson and Delucchi address variability of supply, system economics, and energy policy initiatives associated with a WWS system. The authors advocate producing new energy with WWS by 2030 and replacing existing energy supply by 2050. Barriers to implementing the renewable energy plan. Energy costs with a WWS system should be similar to today’s energy costs. In general, Jacobson has said, water and solar technologies can provide 100 per cent of the world’s energy, eliminating all fossil fuels. He advocates a “smart mix” of renewable energy sources to reliably meet electricity demand: Because the wind blows during stormy conditions when the sun does not shine and the sun often shines Where is it possible to provide a steady state of application? A 2012 study by the University of Delaware for a 72 GW system considered 28 trillion of the most cost-effective, for the PJM Interconnection, would use 17 GW of solar, 68 GW offshore wind, and 115 GW of onshore wind, the weather would be provided. 0.1% of the time would require generation from other sources. In March 2012, Denmark 100% of electricity, renewable energy, renewable energy, renewable energy, 100% renewable energy, renewable energy, renewable energy, renewable energy by 2050. IRENEC is an annual conference on 100% renewable energy started in 2011 by Eurosolar Turkey. The 2013 conference was in Istanbul. More recently, Jacobson and his colleagues have prepared detailed statements for switching to 100% renewable energy produced by wind, water and sunlight, for New York, California and Washington states, by 2050. As of 2014, a more expansive new plan for the 50 states has been drawn up, which includes an online interactive map showing the renewable resource potential of each of the 50 states. The 50-state plan is part of the Project Solutions, an independent outreach effort led by Jacobson, actor Mark Ruffalo, and director Josh Fox. As of 2014, many detailed assessments show that the energy needs of a world can be economically geothermal energy. Debate on detailed plans remains, but transformations in global energy services based on renewable energy are in principle technically feasible, economically feasible, socially viable, and so realizable. This prospect underpins the ambitious commitment by Germany, one of the world’s most successful industrial economies, to undertake a major energy transition, Energiewende. In 2015 a study was published in Energy and Environmental Science that describes a pathway to 100% renewable energy in the United States by 2050 without using biomass. It would save $ 600 Billion Dollars and save $ 3.3 Trillion global warming costs. This would cost $ 8300 per head for business compared to a business as usual pathway. According to that study, barriers that could hamper implementation are neither technical nor economic but social and political, as most people do not know that benefits from such a transformation far exceeded the costs. In June 2017, Jacobson’s earlier article in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America rejecting Jacobs’s earlier article, accusing him of modeling errors and using invalid modeling tools. They further increase their reliability by increasing their energy consumption by 43% to 7 weeks, increasing hydrogen production by 100,000%, and increasing hydropower by the equivalent of 600 Hoover Dams. Article authors David G. Victor called Jacobson’s work “dangerous” and Ken Caldeira pointed out that increasing hydropower output by 1,300 gigawatts, a 25% increase, is the equivalent flow of 100 Mississippi Rivers. Jacobson published a response in the same issue of the PNAS and also authored a blog post where he asserted the researchers were advocates of the fossil fuel industry. Another study published in 2017, the results of the study are more likely to be variable.
In 2015, Jacobson and Delucchi, together with Mary Cameron and Bethany Frew, reviewed with computer simulation (LOADMATCH), in more detail how a wind-water-solar (WWS) system can track the energy demand from minute to minute. This article is available in the United States for 5 years. In 2017, Jacobson and Delucchi with Mary Cameron and Brian Mathiesen published the results for 20 regions in which the world is divided. According to this research, a WWS system can follow the demand in all regions. The program LOADMATCH receives 2050-2055, the WWS system is assumed to connect the electric network
The following places meet 90% or more of their average annual electricity demand with renewable energy: Some other places for high percentages, for example the electricity sector in Denmark, as of 2014, is 40% wind power, with plans in place to reach 85 %. The electricity sector in Canada and the electricity sector in New Zealand have even higher percentages, 65% and 75% respectively, and Austria is approaching 70%. As of 2015, the electricity sector in Germany is almost 100% of the electricity demand with PV and wind power, and renewable electricity is over 25%. Albania has 94.8% of installed capacity as hydroelectric, 5.2% diesel generator; but Albania imports 39% of its electricity. In 2016, Portugal achieves 100% renewable electricity for four days between May 7 and May 11, because of reduced energy demand. France and Sweden have low carbon intensity, since they predominately use a mixture of nuclear power and hydroelectricity. Although electricity is currently a big fraction of primary energy; it is to be expected that with renewable energy energy will increase, it will be increased, but it will also increase. For example, electric cars achieve much better mileage than fossil fuel cars, and another example is renewable heat such as in Denmark which is proposing to move towards greater heat supply for kilowatts of heat per kilowatt of electricity. since they predominately use a mixture of nuclear power and hydroelectricity.

The most significant barriers to the widespread implementation of large-scale renewable energy and low carbon energy strategies, According to the 2013 Post Carbon Pathways Report, which reviewed many international studies, the key roadblocks are: In 1999 American Academic Dr. Gregory Unruh published a dissertation identifying the systemic barriers to adoption and dissemination of renewable energy technologies. This is a carbon-lock structure that has been called Carbon Lock-in and pointed to the creation of self-reinforcing feedbacks that arise through the co-evolution of large-scale systems, like electricity and transportation networks, with the social and political institutions that support and benefit from system growth . Once established, These techno-institutional complexes become “locked-in” and resist efforts to transform them towards more environmentally sustainable systems based on renewable sources. Lester R. Brown, founder and president of the Earth Policy Institute, a nonprofit research organization based in Washington, DC, says a rapid transition to 100% renewable energy is possible and necessary. Brown compares with the US entry into World War II and the subsequent rapid mobilization and transformation of the US industry and economy. A quick transition to 100% renewable energy and saving of our civilization is proposed by Brown to follow an approach with similar urgency. The International Energy Agency says that there is too much attention on the issue of the variability of renewable electricity production. The issue of intermittent supply of solar photovoltaics, and its significance depends on a range of factors which include the market of the renewables, the balance of plant and the wider connectivity of the system, as well as the demand side flexibility. Variability will rarely be a barrier to increased solar energy deployment when such dispersal is as hydroelectricity or solar thermal storage is also available. The goal is to improve the level of the market and the management of the system. Renewable electricity supply in the 20-50 +% penetration range has been implemented in several European systems: In 2011, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the world’s leading climate researchers selected by the United Nations, said “as infrastructure and energy systems”, in spite of the complexities, there are few, if any, of renewable energy technologies to meet a majority share of total energy demand. IPCC scenarios “generally indicate that growth in renewable energy will be widespread around the world”. The IPCC said that they were supportive, and the full complement of renewable energy technologies were deployed, renewable energy supply accounts for almost 80% of the world’s energy use within forty years. Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the IPCC, said the necessary investment in renewables would be only 1% of global GDP annually. This approach could contain as much as 450 parts per million, which is becoming catastrophic and irreversible. In November 2014 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change came out with their fifth report, saying that in the absence of any one technology (such as bioenergy, carbon dioxide capture and storage, nuclear, wind and solar), climate change mitigation can increase substantially depending on which technology is absent. For example, it may cost 40% more to reduce carbon emissions without carbon dioxide capture. (Table 3.2) Google spent $ 30 million on their project to develop renewable energy and stave off catastrophic climate change.
