I have used many of the numbers, graphs and maps from Tackling Climate Change in presentations. From my architectural experience, I also believe that many of the estimates are quite conservative. Energy efficiency promises even larger contributions, in daylighting for example; CSP (Concentrating solar power) can also be implemented on less-flat land; wind power need not be limited to 20% of the grid (given improved storage techniques); and technical advances and cost reductions in PV will broaden its contribution, particularly in building-integrated applications.
Thus, this book's illustration that efficiency and renewables could account for at least 51% of the US electricity grid by 2030 is readily believable. It is an extensively illustrated, well researched collection. Congratulations to the American Solar Energy Society for reaching well beyond solar in this commendable effort.
