80%+ renewables by 2050 is possible

Robert Bryce wrote an op-ed article in the New York Times arguing that renewable energy requires too vast an amount of land in order to generate the amount of electricity we need. RMI's Jay Tankersley's response is to first decrease electric demand and load by implementing efficiency measures, then use existing infrastructure (such as building roofs) to install renewable energy sources. This will make it possible to achieve 80% renewables or more in the U.S. energy portfolio by 2050.
