That is a question that should be answered with another question, to which extent we want to save or at least reduce the dramatic impact that fossil energy has in the environment!? However, I do believe if the goal is to save the planet renewable energies such as Wind and Solar can replace a huge part of the production of the energy. Finally, you can read many articles and papers that speak in an optimistic way about renewable energy, but it is great to have a full view with also negative points (you can read this book: https://www.withouthotair.com/), this latter points the doubt about the renewable and even if I do not agree with him, he highlighted important issues!
