Extending Energy Policies Would Reduce CO2 Emissions

The U.S. Energy Information Administration released a report stating that extending current energy policies could reduce annual carbon dioxide emissions in the U.S.

“Policies that would need to be extended to achieve the reduction include the production tax credit for wind, biomass, geothermal, and other renewable resources and the investment tax credit for solar generation technologies.”

If the policies were extended, EIA projects that the cumulative amount of energy use between 2013 and 2040 would be about 55 quadrillion Btu lower.
