As climate change accelerates, U.S. senators pressure New England’s grid operator to do more to quit carbon-based fuelThe impeachment hearings have brought to light the incredibly close relationship between government agencies and business leadership. Even in Vermont, recent news reports have highlighted the close relationship between high-ranking individuals..
Not true! Try looking at the data. Despite odd conspiracy theories and incorrect Boston Globe and Forbes reports to the contrary, the increase in greenhouse gas emissions in Vermont was not due to the shutdown of Vermont Yankee. At least it wasn´t between 1990 and 2015. The increase in total GHG emissions from Vermont was due to increases from the transportation sector. In fact, GHG...
Interesting to see those emissions rise in the transportation sector per your table. Also notable that it was each type of transportation/transport fuel that increased over those 5 years. I assume that means it was simply a function of the volume of travel/transportation increasing over those years? Was that perhaps coinciding with general economic growth? Population boom?
Redefining Energy: Green Datacenters (interviews with Google and Microsoft) - dec19 on Apple PodcastsGerard and Laurent address the critical role of Datacenters in the new Energy landscape. Datacenters, Internet's backbone, have become significant Energy guzzlers in the past decade, with their consumption multiplied by 5.
Victoria - rejecting heat to the oceans is not a free-lunch, in California almost all heat rejection from power generation facilities has been banned due to environmental impact. Google tends to use cooling towers to reject heat from their data centers worldwide but in most cases the makeup water comes from water re-use vs. potable water. Also they build the most efficient data centers,...
This report shows how the GSA, the nation’s largest landlord, could save $50 million in annual cost savings and generate $70 million in value to grid users if it implemented these strategies. Great figures here-- are GEB's already widely available anywhere or is this predominantly a nascent tech?
