ABSTRACT
The article discusses renewable energy sources in the U.S. According to the author, any effort to move the U.S. away from its current fossil-fuel energy system will require the promotion of renewable energy. It is stated that the nation's vast resources of solar and wind imply that renewable energy could, over time, replace a large part of the fossil-fuel energy system. The existing energy system includes economic institutions such as banks and capital markets that know how to evaluate an energy firm's financial status and are knowledgeable about prices. It is also stated that policies that seek to change the energy system need to stay focused on policy goals beyond simple market efficiency.
