As concerns about climate change stoke pressures on companies to make their fleets cleaner and greener, ground shipping giant UPS believes it has delivered. The company has more than 1,000 electric and hybrid electric vehicles – 50 of them electric-powered delivery trucks brought on just last year in the U.S. More are on the way.
Plan expands access to community solar, reduces energy costs for customers
SYRACUSE, N.Y., October 7, 2019/3BL Media/ – National Grid has submitted a first-of-its-kind proposal to enhance its upstate New York Community Distributed Generation Program that, if approved by state regulators, would expand access to clean energy to more low and moderate income customers.
October brings cooler weather and marks Energy Awareness Month—a time to focus on conservation and saving energy. We think it’s the perfect opportunity for a power-down-to-play-outside challenge. We’ve put together a list of ideas to help.
As more U.S. states offer incentives for renewable energy investment and costs for solar photovoltaic (PV) panels continue to decrease, it seems utility-scale battery energy storage is positioned to take charge of the next renewables revolution.
Electricity: the more our population grows, the more of it we need. And the more electricity we consume, the stronger the case for using renewable, non-polluting power sources in place of fossil fuels. Going forward, further innovation in solar and wind power technology is needed if we are to meet our future power supply goals.

Despite warnings that we have a limited window in which to make drastic cuts in global climate emissions, the world is on pace to fall far short of what it takes to secure our future.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has warned that we must limit global warming to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2030. To do that, we would need to achieve drastic worldwide reductions in emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.
The Global Footprint Network reports that humanity is currently consuming natural resources 1.7 times faster than our planet’s ecosystems can regenerate. The global infrastructure already locks in 95% of our carbon budget.
