Not really. Wind is pretty well developed in locations, and
further potential is limited. Thin-film photovoltaics yes, but
it can't grow fast enough to meet the demand gap, and by itself
it does little to address lack of fossil gases, liquids and

What needs to be done would be a long and pretty mixed list.
The specifics would also differ for locations. I'm not sure
what sense it would make to post here, as it's not a technical
list nor will it have any impact on policy people.
