The report commissioned by New Jersey Conservation Foundation outlines the fact that while New Jersey is making strides toward clean energy, many in the state continue to burn natural gas and other fossil fuels directly in their homes, producing greenhouse gas emissions and harmful indoor air pollution. New Jersey is falling behind in achieving its building decarbonization goals compared to neighboring states, as the transition to clean, electric buildings are underway throughout the U.S. and globally.
A new study finds that development of natural gas pipelines and associated infrastructure is resulting in significant costs to the environment and communities in the Delaware River Basin (DRB). The costs that can be quantified could be as much as $2.4 billion for two pipelines alone — in addition to costs that can’t yet be quantified. Among the key findings:
A new report from Oil Change International debunks the myth that natural gas can be a bridge to a clean, affordable energy future. In New Jersey, it is clear that the state cannot reach its goal of 100% clean energy without reducing — and then eliminating — gas by 2050.
The proposed PennEast pipeline is a solution in search of a problem, and data and analysis shows the pipeline isn’t needed to satisfy need, to reduce natural gas prices, or to ensure reliability or a low-cost transition to a clean energy future.
PennEast is not needed to meet peak winter gas demands, not even for a single day, even during extreme weather events.
A groundbreaking study details how New Jersey can cut harmful carbon emissions from generating electric power in half by 2030.
A proposed gas pipeline through the Pinelands is an over-priced, oversized, ineffective answer to a problem that does not exist, a new report finds.

Now in its fifth year, the annual poll surveyed registered voters in New Jersey and results show overwhelming support for renewable energy, and specifically, the state’s initiative to achieve 100% clean energy by 2050.
New Jerseyans of both political parties overwhelmingly support renewable energy, and want the state to achieve 100% of its energy come from sources like wind and solar.
New Jerseyans of both political parties overwhelmingly support renewable energy like wind and solar, and agree the state should adopt a goal of having 80% of the state’s energy come from such sources.
