February 5, 2018 /3BL Media/ - A new climate report released by ExxonMobil, which explores the risks the company would face in a low-carbon transition, represents “a significant step forward for institutional investors who have long engaged with the company on climate change but falls short on key details,” Andrew Logan, director oil and gas at Ceres, said today in a statement.
The report, 2018 Energy & Carbon Summary, “adopted a whole new climate-related frame,” Logan added, “providing the clearest accounting yet of how Exxon is—and is not—planning for a low-carbon future.”

The federal government has long shaped U.S. energy policy, but today, we see states and corporations taking up the mantle
The federal government has long played a central role in shaping U.S. energy independence and security. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA). Over the last decade, federal programs have significantly influenced the energy sector, particularly in the development of smart grids and renewable energy.
The electricity industry is undergoing a major transition, as changes are reshaping the traditional utility model. Climate change, for one, has prompted the gradual decarbonisation of generation facilities around the world. Technology advancements are driving down the costs of wind turbines, solar panels, energy storage devices and distributed energy, making renewables an increasingly viable part of people's daily lives.
