Local utility companies will play a critical role in enabling the future of cleaner transit
What will mass transit look like in the future? Earlier this year, California announced an ambitious plan to reduce emissions by 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030, setting the state on a path to achieving 80-percent reduction by 2050. Although satisfying these goals will require contributions from all sectors of the economy, the transition to zero- and near-zero emission vehicles will play an outsized role — particularly when it comes to mass transit.
$20 Million Facility to be Located at Innovative Circuit West District
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., March 15, 2018 /3BL Media/ – Consumers Energy’s investment in West Michigan continues with plans announced today for a new $20 million headquarters in the city of Grand Rapids to serve the fastest-growing region of its company.
The building will house up to 275 employees who support the design and delivery of energy service in the Grand Rapids area, the company’s largest electric service area in Michigan.
New projects will create a safer and more reliable system while reducing greenhouse gases to meet California’s clean energy goals
It seems like a simple enough idea — Why can’t the power company identify the place on an electrical circuit that caused an outage so fewer customers are affected and it takes less time to fix?
Until recently, Southern California Edison found the origin of an outage just like it has done for more than 100 years — dispatch a troubleman to patrol the entire circuit until the cause could be identified.
New Hampshire faces both challenges and opportunities in the transition to a reliable and affordable clean energy future. From infrastructure investments to workforce development, rising energy costs, and more, there is much to consider as the Granite State looks to increase our competitiveness and expand our energy options.
Duke Energy CEO Lynn Good shares company’s grid modernization plans
Roads, railways and broadband might come to mind when you hear the word “infrastructure,” but at Duke Energy, the first thing that comes to mind is the energy grid – the largest machine ever built. It’s the infrastructure that powers nearly every part of society, enabling communities to grow, businesses to thrive and families to live comfortably.
As an important part of our transition to clean energy sources, and commitment to build a sustainable future for our company, the people of Michigan and the environment we share, we retired our seven oldest coal-fired generating plants on April 15, 2016.
As the demand for computing power grows exponentially, there has been a push from both outside of, and within the IT sector to reduce the carbon emissions and energy consumption associated with the world’s rapidly expanding IT infrastructure, which consists largely of data center facilities. The reality is that efficiency improvements won’t be enough to meet the exploding demand for data, and the compute power necessary to provide it.
