Reality Check

Misconceptions about renewable energy, electric vehicles, batteries, the electricity grid, and the clean energy transition abound. From the merely misinformed to the outright misleading, dubious information can fuel doubts about the economic, health, and climate benefits of clean energy solutions, and worse, can slow action on climate change.

Debunking these myths is critical to accelerating the clean energy transition. That is why RMI is developing a growing catalog of “Reality Check” articles that distinguish fact from fiction and set the record straight on some of the misconceptions hindering climate action.
