Currently, 7 pct of Duke Energy's company-owned electrical output comes from wind, solar and hydroelectric plants. That figure is projected to grow to 23 pct by 2030. The company is also undertaking its aggressive renewable energy build-outs with wind and solar projects currently under construction in Florida, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Texas. Over the next three years, Duke will also add 280 mw of pumped storage hydro capacity at its Bad Creek facility in South Carolina.
The company is also overseeing the largest coal retirement in the industry and since 2010 has retired 51 coal-fired units and is aiming to cut carbon emissions 50 pct by 2030 to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. To that end, the company is on track to operate or purchase 16,000 mw of renewable energy capacity by 2025 and is investing in major electric grid upgrades, expanded battery storage, and exploring zero-emitting power generation technologies such as hydrogen and advanced nuclear, according to the release.
Duke Energy also announced Duke Energy Sustainable Solutions, a new comprehensive brand for its non-regulated commercial renewables business. The brand unifies products and services offered by several Duke Energy subsidiaries, including Duke Energy Renewables, REC Solar and Duke Energy One.
