For the United States, said Pew’s Cuttino, the trend is a major business opportunity to sell large amounts of renewable energy technology around the world — provided, that is, that we remain a world leader in the sector.

“This ought to be a priority for the world for climate reasons, but it also ought to be a priority for the United States for export reasons,” she said.
