Should governments push for 100% renewable energy?
We have not currently made all the technological advances necessary to rely solely on renewable energy.
100% RE would include the transport sector where innovation has not led to substantial changes yet.
Ever growing demand for energy means that we will ultimately require a further breakthrough in order to supply everyone with energy from renewable sources.
Doing it as fast as possible will stress the economy by obligating the incorporation of economically inviable technologies and will stress the population that is not prepared for the fast-paced transition.
Significant development will be needed into the storage of the electricity, as renewable energy cannot be simply increased to meet consumers immediate demands.
Part of pushing for completely renewable energy as fast as possible will be funding further research into these technologies, while using those we already have to provide as much energy as it can.
