  1. Idaho tops list of Western U.S. states in terms of renewable power generation

    Idaho tops a ranking of Western U.S. states in terms of renewable power generation, according to a ranking released by the Geothermal Energy Association. “When you consider both baseload and intermittent renewable power, Idaho is a leader,” says Karl Gawell, executive director of the association. This ranking is being distributed in support of the first Baseload Renewable Energy Summit, being held in Reno, Nev., June 7-8. The event is hosted by GEA, the National Hydropower Association and Biomass Power Association to explore the role of baseload renewable technologies in a low-carbon future. “As the Western states move toward a low-carbon future, the role and outlook for all renewable power technologies needs to be examined,” Gawell stated. “Finding the right mix of technologies is an important question for decision-makers to explore if the Western states are going to find the least-cost, minimum impact path to a low carbon future.”   Below is the ranking: Western States Renewable Power Ranking Ranking State                       % all renewables* % baseload renewables** #1       Idaho                               82%                           64% #2       Washington                       76%                          70% #3       Oregon                             74%                           61% #4       Montana                           45%                           38% #5       California                           30%                           18% #6       Alaska                               29%                           26% #7       Nevada                             19%                           15% #8       Colorado                            17%                            3% #9       Hawaii                               12%                           6% #10     Wyoming                            11%                          2% #11     New Mexico                         9%                            0% #12     Arizona                                8%                            5% #13     Utah                                   4%                            2% *2014 generation wind, solar, geothermal, biomass and hydropower as percentage of total **2014 generation geothermal, biomass and hydropower as percentage of total Source: GEA, 2016, based upon data from EIA September 2015.
