The main purpose of the study is to assess the prospects for the development of alternative energy in the United States. According to the results of the study, eight main problems of the development of renewable energy sources in the United States were identified: the Unreliability and instability of renewable energy sources; Dependence of the possibility of generating energy from renewable sources on the location of these sources; Opposition to the development of renewable energy by representatives of traditional energy; Insufficient study of the impact of energy production from renewable sources on the environment; the High cost of investment in the creation of renewable energy technologies; Dependence of the development of renewable energy on public policy; the Limited energy that can be extracted from renewable sources; For the first problem, the solution lies in the creation of batteries with energy storage from renewable sources. To solve the second problem completely is not possible, but technological improvement of stations for expansion of the area is possible. The third problem is solved by publishing reports on the activities of lobbyists from traditional energy enterprises in the Federal and state governments. The fourth problem does not seem to be too significant, since the equipment for obtaining energy from alternative sources is sufficiently durable. The fifth problem will be solved in the near future, as the cost and cost of equipment for generating energy from alternative sources have been significantly reduced. The sixth problem can only be remedied by a review of public policy. As part of the seventh problem, 100% replacement of traditional energy sources with alternative ones is not mandatory for the task. To solve the eighth problem, support for investors from the state and international organizations, as well as the provision of Advisory and organizational support is necessary.
