How much power can renewable energy generate in the U.S. if the appropriate mix of policies and market-based incentives are implemented? According to a joint report coordinated by the American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE), the answer is 635 gigawatts (GW) by 2025.

"The answer is not that the [EIA statistics] are wrong, they're exactly right. Their conclusion is renewable energy doesn't amount to much if we don't change policy. That's our whole point. That if we don't change policy we cannot expect a substantial difference in the outcome." -- Michael T. Eckhart, American Council On Renewable Energy, president
