We need to front load the process with subsidies for renewable energy and funding for transmission infrastructure and energy storage capacity and related research projects. Several technologies are mature enough for initial deployment including fuel cells combined with hydrogen generation from renewable energy, pumped hydro, thermal solar electrical battery storage and some flow battery configurations.
The goal should be to get to 100% renewable energy and then some ASAP, so we will have the capacity to convert polluting manufacturing and refining processes to renewable energy ASAP.
The fossil fuel industry is ripe for disruption and it is hard to compete with energy sources that require no fuel. Do that and avoid disruptions during the transition. Five years should be adequate to transition to renewable energy generation. Ten years to transition most of the transportation infrastructure.
