Solar Futures Study Databook

The Solar Futures Study explores pathways for solar energy to drive deep decarbonization of the U.S. electric grid and considers how further electrification could decarbonize the broader energy system.

This workbook contains data behind most figures in the U.S. Department of Energy's Solar Futures Study. Data are not provided for figures with data labels and certain figures generated with larger data sets. These data will be made available upon request.
