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.

Peak Energy: Energy 101: Where Does Our Power Come From ? - 0 views

  •  
    Inhabitat is doing a "Energy 101" series to explain why smart grids are necessary - Energy 101: Where Does Our Power Come From ?. Today we're excited to announce the launch of our new Energy 101 series,. in which we'll be exploring the future-forward technologies that stand to upgrade our grids, reduce our Energy footprint, and slow the speed of global warming. Unless you have been living in a cave for the past few years, you've probably heard terms like "Energy Energy", "off-grid Energy", and "smart grid" tossed around. But before getting into the nitty-gritty of transitioning to renewable Energy, we should stop and examine where exactly our power comes from now. Unless you derive all your power from on-site renewable Energy sources like solar panels or wind turbines, chances are that you're connected to the power grid, a vast network that delivers electricity from suppliers to consumers. Right now, most Energy on the grid comes from generating plants. These plants still usually get power from traditional sources like coal, nuclear, and hydroelectric dams. But as concerns over carbon emissions, safety, and long term sustainability of these sources grow, electrical utilities have begun to switch over to renewable Energy sources.

NRDC: Renewable Energy for America - 0 views

  •  
    Certain lands (such as parks, critical wildlife habitats, and wilderness quality lands) and ecologically sensitive areas in the oceans are not appropriate for energy development. In some of these areas, energy development is prohibited or limited by law or policy, in others it would be highly controversial. NRDC does not endorse locating energy facilities or transmission lines in such areas. And in all cases, siting decisions must be made extremely carefully, impacts must be mitigated and operations conducted in an environmentally responsible manner. For more information on the intersection between clean energy development and wildland and wildlife energy in the American West, including locations of parks, wildlife refuges and other energy areas, see this Google Earth-based feature.

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.

Energy Reliant States - 0 views

  •  
    How much energy could be generated by states tapping into internal renewable resources? To date, no study has addressed this question comprehensively. This report is a first attempt to do so. The data in this report, while preliminary, suggest that at least half of the fifty states could meet all their internal energy needs from renewable energy generated inside their borders, and the vast majority could meet a significant percentage. And these estimates may well be conservative.

The Nature Conservancy in Montana - Making Wind Energy Safe for Wildlife - 0 views

  •  
    Scientists at The Nature Conservancy in Montana have completed the first analysis of where wind generation facilities can be located with minimal risk to the state's wildlife and the environment. Wind provides great promise for a clean and renewable source of energy, but each year wind generation facilities kill tens of thousands of birds and important pollinators such as bats. . And yet, wind energy development has moved forward with very little science-based analysis that might help prevent this kind of environmental harm. The impacts of wind generation are greater than just the immediate airspace. Most turbines take up 40-100 acres of land, so large-scale wind farms can span thousands of acres. Each facility also requires roads and transmission corridors.

Peak Energy: Efficient And Smart Ways To Fix The Economy - 0 views

  •  
    CNN reports that Obama is planning an economic stimulus package based on energy efficient buildings and improved internet access - Obama outlines initiative to create 2.5 million jobs. President-elect Barack Obama on Saturday outlined some of his plan to create 2.5 million jobs by 2011, and said he will push for immediate action by Congress when he takes office in January. Obama wants to make public buildings more energy-efficient, repair roads and bridges, modernize schools, increase broadband access and ensure that health care professionals have access to the latest technology. "Our government now pays the highest energy bill in the world," he said in the weekly Democratic radio address.

T. Boone Pickens finds new allies in fuel plan | Freep.com | Detroit Free Press - 0 views

  •  
    T. Boone Pickens, a conservative billionaire who made his money in oil, is creating strange bedfellows with his aggressive plan for renewable energy such as wind power and natural gas. Last month, he held two conference calls with more than 27,000 members of the Sierra Club to talk up the plan. The environmental group, with some reservations, is on board. Last week, he met with Al Gore. Today, he is scheduled to be on the University of Michigan campus, selling his ideas to students. He said he expects a packed house.

Review: 'Plan C' by Pat Murphy and 'Small is Possible' by Lyle Estill | Energy Bulletin - 0 views

  •  
    Plan C is a luminous book. Whereas so many other books on curtailing energy usage simply describe ways to cut consumption, Plan C goes way beyond mere description to take a truly penetrating look at how our individual choices make a difference. Author Pat Murphy's sharp analysis, which draws on hard numbers from the Department of energy and other sources, allows us to truly quantify the impact of our everyday habits, and to realize that we're capable of making far more of a difference than many believe.

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.
