A cleantech revolution is taking place in the USA

infographic february 2013 US electricityI really enjoy infographics as they enable to gather a lot of information in a few moments. The latest I found via Twitter (see left) is on how a cleantech revolution is already taking place in the United States of America.

Indeed, since 2007, energy efficiency, renewables like solar and wind (as well as natural gas) have been gaining significant ground in the local electricity market. This is one reason why the country’s emissions have been decreasing.

Let’s hope that the newly reelected President Barack Obama will jump on the occasion to start new iniatives to further cut the nation’s greenhouse gases emissions.
