Alliant Energy released its Corporate Sustainability Report (CSR), and announced its goal to cut carbon emissions 80% and eliminate all existing coal from its energy mix by 2050.
Alliant Energy plans to spend more than US$2 billion on new renewables, doubling its number of wind sites from six to 12.
These actions will enable Alliant Energy to exceed carbon reduction goals pledged originally by the US under the voluntary United Nations Paris Accord.
While the Accord calls for reducing carbon 32% below 2005 levels by 2030, Alliant Energy's plans enable a 40% reduction by that time.
