RENEWABLE ENERGY
ENTERS THE MAINSTREAM

With uncertainties over the ability of traditional methods of electric generation to meet growing needs, the portfolio of renewable energy sources—solar, wind, hydroelectric and biomass—is ideally suited to make a major contribution while minimizing environmental impacts, according to the head of the electricity industry's research consortium.

"Electricity's role has grown steadily in scope and importance over the past century, reshaping people's lives while creating entire new industries and lifting industrial and commercial productivity to new heights," said Kurt Yeager, president and chief executive officer of EPRI (Electric Power Research Institute) in Palo Alto, Calif.
