Renewable Energy's 'Footprint' Myth

Amory B. Lovins

The Electricity Journal, 2011, vol. 24, issue 6, 40-47

Abstract: Many nuclear advocates argue that renewable electricity has far too big a land 'footprint' to be environmentally acceptable, while nuclear power is preferable because it uses orders of magnitude less land. If we assume that land-use is an important metric, a closer look reveals the opposite is true.
