Recent events highlight the pressing need to overhaul U.S. water policies, usage and pricing, veteran water journalist and author Cynthia Barnett writes in an article for Ensia.
Achieving 100 percent renewable energy using today’s technologies is not only possible, it’s affordable. Using eight case studies of increasingly larger geopolitical scope and scale, a World Future Council-E3 Analytics’ policy handbook lays out just how.
Solar power is poised to take on a major role in meeting electricity needs across the LAC region. NPD Solarbuzz forecasts that some 9 gigawatts of clean, renewable PV generation capacity will be installed across the LAC over the next five years.
Solar PV capacity has soared among U.S. schools, yielding cost savings as well as improving environmental health and quality. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, according to the first nationwide assessment of solar energy installations at U.S. schools.
Confluence of grid modernization, renewable energy integration and government policy is driving development of a real market for utility-scale energy storage, as well as customer demand for intelligent energy storage solutions from innovative companies including Emeryville, California’s Greensmith.
Events are unfolding quickly in the nascent market for intelligent energy storage systems, especially in California, where a state mandate is fueling demand. Early market leader Stem on Sept. 30 announced it has finalized an agreement to install its energy intelligence platforms across 68 Extended Stay America hotels in the Golden State.
