“Last year, we saw record numbers of clean energy deployed here in the United States. There was 49% of all new capacity was clean energy, about 30% was natural gas. But at the same time, while we saw record deployments of clean energy what’s been very worrisome is that the policy environment we are seeing around clean energy has been very unstable.”

—Phyllis Cuttino, Director of the Pew Charitable Trusts' Clean Energy Program.
