Correction for ‘Geophysical constraints on the reliability of solar and wind power in the United States’ by Matthew R. Shaner et al., Energy Environ. Sci., 2018, DOI: 10.1039/c7ee03029k.


The following errors were present in the original article:

In references 10, 12, 20, 27, 28 and 39, the journal title should be Renewable Energy instead of Science.

Reference 16 should read: G. Giebel, On the benefits of distributed generation of wind energy in Europe, PhD thesis, Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg, 2001.

Reference 24, should read: “X. Lu, M. B. McElroy and J. Kiviluoma, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U. S. A., 2008, 106, 10933–10938”.

References 32 and 38 should be removed from the reference section. On page 2, column 2, lines 4 and 20, the citations to reference 32 should be replaced by citations to reference 23. On page 10, column 1, line 19, the citation to reference 38 should be replaced by a citation to reference 12.

The Royal Society of Chemistry apologises for these errors and any consequent inconvenience to authors and readers.
