The Challenge of Scope 1 Emissions

By Sheshawn Foltzer In recent posts, we’ve discussed the concept of Science-Based Targets (SBT) which offer organizations a pathway and series of metrics for setting carbon reduction goals. Last week, we outlined some of the challenges and implications related to the just-released Securities Exchange Commission ruling requiring publicly-traded companies to disclose climate-related risks. And we…

Scientists achieve record efficiency for ultra-thin solar panels

A team has successfully increased the levels of energy absorbed by wafer-thin photovoltaic panels by 25%. Their solar panels, just one micrometer thick, convert light into electricity more efficiently than others as thin and pave the way to make it easier to general more clean, green energy.

Fuel from waste wood

According to the latest assessment report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a considerable reduction in CO2 emissions is required to limit the consequences of climate change. Producing fuel from renewable sources such as waste wood and straw or renewable electricity would be one way to reduce carbon emissions from the area of transportation….

640 MWh of energy storage now online in SCE territory

By Kelly Pickerel Southern Power has completed the energy storage additions to two solar projects in California. “These co-located solar and storage projects are a first of their kind for Southern Power,” said Southern Power President Bill Grantham. “We expect these new battery-based energy storage projects to enhance California’s grid reliability. The combination of our…

Consulting to maximize results
