How renewable energy is generated

Renewable energy sources are naturally replenishing resources that produce no- or low-carbon emissions. They can be generated from a number of different sources, some more familiar than others. As the technologies that help us harvest this clean energy advance, they will likely become more affordable and visible.

What can I do today?

Explore a variety of ways to support the growth of renewable energy sources while saving energy right now.

What Duke Energy is doing

As we journey down the road to net-zero emissions, Duke Energy is demonstrating our commitment to renewable energy in many ways and many places. Today, we operate more than 11,900 MW of renewable generation capacity that is planned to reach 30,000 MW by 2035. By our net-zero target of 2050, we estimate that renewables will be our largest generation source.

Over the next decade, Duke Energy will make targeted investments in solar power plants, battery storage technology, community solar programs, wind energy and a modernized power grid to integrate renewables – all to help meet customers’ needs for cleaner, diverse, reliable energy solutions.
