RENEWABLE ENERGY
Renewable energy industries have grown at a rate of 20% or more over the last two decades. Wind, geothermal energy, biomass, and the potential hydrogen economy will continue to grow rapidly for the foreseeable future. Energy Nevada’s vision is to deploy Nevada’s human and natural renewable resources to make Nevada a showcase for the new renewable energy economics.
