Find out how to:
The concept of creating a 100 percent clean electricity system only recently went from being fringe to mainstream. Now, the state of Illinois wants to up the ante.
California passed legislation to achieve 100 percent clean electricity by 2045, and New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed an executive order calling for 100 percent clean energy by 2050.
Since it separated from the United Kingdom in 1921, the Republic of Ireland has remained closely tied to its neighbor. The connections have run the gamut, from culture to economy to energy.
As tech companies and other large energy consumers are increasingly focusing on shifting toward a cleaner power supply, they face a choice to work with utilities or directly with developers.
Microsoft announced a deal with developer Invenergy for a new 74 MW solar project in North Carolina. The company has been aggressively investing in renewable energy to power 60% of its data centers with renewable energy by early 2020.
EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler claimed Monday that U.S. fossil fuels were "cleaner" than those from other countries, encouraging foreign customers to buy American oil, coal and natural gas.
He said domestic environmental laws on energy production were tougher than other countries, attempting to marry increasing awareness around climate change with the Trump administration's ambitions to expand U.S. energy exports.
Just confirmed: FERC Commissioner Cheryl A. LaFleur will be the keynote luncheon speaker at the upcoming EBA Annual Meeting & Conference May 6 and 7 at the Renaissance Hotel in Washington, DC.
