A new report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration on the nation’s power generation market shows the market is on track to reach a peak of nearly 9 million megawatts of capacity in the 2030s. This represents the most reliable energy supply and means the U.S. could double its current share of global production of clean energy sources.
The growth rate of the U.S. market for energy generation capacity was at 13 percent in 2008, and is expected to reach about 18 percent in 2030.
