Department of Energy - DOE Awards Sixteen Contracts for up to $80 Billion in Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy, and Water Energy Projects at Federal Facilities - 0 views

  •  
    Today the Department of Energy (DOE) announced the award of 16 new Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPCs) that could result in up to $80 billion in Energy efficiency, renewable Energy, and water Energy projects at federally-owned buildings and facilities. ESPCs help to meet the federal government's Energy efficiency, water Energy, and renewable Energy goals. The federal government is the largest single user of Energy in the United States and these awards demonstrate a commitment to sound government stewardship by recognizing efforts to save Energy, reduce federal Energy costs, cut greenhouse gas emissions, bring more cutting-edge technologies to use, strengthen national security, and create a stronger economy.

Greenpeace energy report projects cheap, clean power -- and more jobs | Greenspace | Los Angeles Times - 0 views

  •  
    An environmentalist-sponsored report claims that by 2050, the United States could sever ties with coal and nuclear power, draw nearly all its electricity from renewable sources and cut its greenhouse gas emissions by more than 80% -- all with existing technology and with a net gain of 14 million jobs to the domestic economy. The report, commissioned by Greenpeace and the European Renewable Energy Council and conducted by Germany's equivalent of NASA, was released this morning at a press briefing in Washington. It is heavy on charts and supporting data and transparent on some key assumptions. And its sponsors call its findings "conservative." At its core, the report envisions a steep drop in the United States' Energy use, both in absolute terms and compared with International Energy Agency predictions -- driven by strict efficiency standards. It also projects dramatic changes in the nation's electricity mix, with wind and solar power mushrooming to replace coal, oil and nuclear sources that would gradually go offline.

Newsvine - Going Green Off The Grid - 0 views

  •  
    What better way to save the world than to start in your own back yard? That's what Doug Rempel is doing - one SIP at a time. Doug is currently building an entirely energy efficient home next to Lillooet Lake, in Pemberton, B.C. The home is "off the grid" which means everything, from the solar insulation panels (SIPS) to the architecture of the home - with window levels and patio ledges based on sun path charts - is created to heat and cool in the most natural way possible. There is no hydro power or natural gas. "energy-efficiency is a career as well as a passion of mine," says Doug.
