Speeding up the transition to clean, renewable energy is one of the best ways to curb the dangerous carbon pollution that causes climate change.
NRDC works to dramatically scale up renewable power around the world. We help states and nations pass clean energy standards and implement other policies that expand the market for wind and solar power, and we help utilities effectively bring renewable power onto the electric grid. To ensure that new renewable projects don’t harm sensitive ecosystems, we help energy companies and government agencies steer clear of important landscapes and wildlife. And we work to minimize the environmental harm and security risks that come with using nuclear energy to supply emissions-free power.
