      US Poised To Hit 1994-Levels Of CO2 Emissions This Year, Says BNEF

      Power sector emissions across the country are poised to fall to a two-decade low in 2015 as record volumes of coal-fired capacity are shuttered and vast amounts of renewable energy comes online. The analysts estimate that 18 GW of new renewable energy capacity will come online in the U.S. in 2015, of which solar PV capacity will contribute 9.1 GW – a record. Half of that PV capacity will be built in the state of California alone, adds BNEF, while wind power will grow by 8.9 GW, which would represent the third-best year for the sector.
