A new analysis released today by Ceres shows that many of the nation’s largest electric utilities and their local subsidiaries are moving toward lower carbon fuel sources and that ambitious state policies and strong corporate demand for renewable energy are key drivers of this trend.
Some traditional utilities are incorporating more renewable energy into their sourcing and sales portfolios, and re-inventing their business model while they do so. That’s the findings of a new report by Ceres and Clean Edge that ranks U.S. investor-owned electric utilities on their clean energy-related activities. The report, “Benchmarking Utility Clean Energy Deployment,” compiles data from over 10 sources, ranking 32 of the largest holding companies on three clean energy indicators: renewable energy sales, cumulative energy efficiency, and incremental energy efficiency.
