Here, we detail 2022’s top states for renewable energy projects like battery storage, hydropower, waste-to-energy plants, and solar and wind farms. We even offer GEM project reports for some of the top five states’ most notable projects.
Embracing renewable energy sources and moving away from fossil fuels are and will continue to be crucial to limiting the dangerous effects of climate change. Sources of renewable energy like battery storage, hydropower, waste-to-energy plants, and solar and wind farms are not only highly efficient, but they are also massively cost-effective. Renewables are already cheaper than fossil fuels, and their prices seem only to fall.
In addition to mining, oil, and gas, BCI’s Global Energy & Mining product (GEM) tracks wind and solar farm projects. In order to forecast some of the hottest markets for renewable energy projects in 2022 and beyond, we dug through GEM to see which U.S. states are busy planning and developing renewable energy projects.
Using GEM, we filtered our project search for U.S.-based renewable energy projects either in the concept, design and documentation, pre-construction, or construction stages with updates at or after 11/1/21. These states are listed in order according to the total dollar value of battery storage, hydropower, waste-to-energy, solar power, and wind power projects that are in one of the aforementioned planning or construction stages, per GEM as of 11/17/21.
