Renewable energy in the United States currently accounts for 13% of domestically produced electricity. The growth of our domestic renewable market is set to explode, due to declining costs and improving financing options. Clean energy investment broke new records in 2015 and is now seeing twice as much global funding as fossil fuels. Recently, solar has become a cheaper power generation source than coal in numerous markets, which is why the majority of new power generation capacity is renewable. Join the New American Energy Revolution and finally end our dependence on unstable foreign oil producers. If the private and public sectors collectively embrace solar energy, the United States can achieve full energy independence relatively quickly and win the fight against climate change.

Combined heat and power (CHP) systems, also known as cogeneration, generate electricity and useful thermal CHP is not a technology, but an approach to applying technologies. Heat that is normally wasted in conventional power generation is recovered as useful energy, which avoids the losses that would otherwise be incurred from separate generation of heat and power.
A fuel cell combines hydrogen and oxygen to produce electricity, heat, and water. Fuel cells are often compared to batteries. Both convert the energy produced by a chemical reaction into usable electric power. However, the fuel cell will produce electricity as long as fuel (hydrogen) is supplied, never losing its charge.
