When the Super Bowl kicks off in February at University of Phoenix Stadium, there's one thing the NFL won't have to worry about: an extended black-out. Ephesus Lighting of Syracuse, N.Y., has just completed installation of LED lighting at the venue, site of the 2015 Super Bowl. The first game played under the new lights recently, when the Cardinals hosted the San Francisco 49ers. So far, so good.

Hydro reports increase in net income, but don't expect lower rates
680 CJOB
Manitoba Hydro says the last fiscal year was a good one — but an expert says that won't keep any cash in your wallet when you pay your bills. Hydro says a five-year high in export electricity helped the Crown owned utility nearly double its net income in 2013-2014. Byron Williams of the Public Interest Law Centre says increased revenue from the export market won't offset costs for bipole III and the Keeyask generating station.

How clean technology can save Canadian manufacturing
B.C. Business
Canada's burgeoning clean technology sector was the focus of a panel recently hosted by the David Suzuki Foundation in Vancouver. The country's clean technology industry — which includes companies in transportation, power generation, recycling, and even oil and gas waste management — employed 41,000 in 2012 and contributed $11.3 billion to Canada's GDP. Moreover, the industry, which is dominated by small companies, draws more than half its revenue from exports, which could grow to $32 billion in a decade.

Manitoba Hydro's Bipole III cost shoots up by more than $1 billion
CBC News
The price tag for a Manitoba Hydro megaproject jumped again recently — a move that will likely lead to more questions about the province's energy plans. The Crown utility announced a new estimate of $4.6 billion for the Bipole III transmission line, up from $3.3 billion in 2011 and an original figure of $2.2 billion in 2007. The utility said converter technology is the main reason. The corporation assumed businesses that submitted bids would use new, less expensive types of converters that are coming on-stream in other jurisdictions, but they aren't.

Philips to split off light bulb unit in historic move
The Globe and Mail
Philips, the Dutch conglomerate that started life making light bulbs 123 years ago, is splitting off its lighting business in a bold step to expand its higher-margin health care and consumer divisions. Putting the lighting business in a separate company is part of a wider strategy that began with Philips' move out of less profitable consumer electronics and into fast-growing health care markets, largely in emerging Asian markets.

CBC News
Construction workers were still putting the finishing touches on two new lounges at the MTS Centre, just hours before the Winnipeg Jets were set to take the ice in the first pre-season game of 2014. True North Sports and Entertainment has spent $6 million on upgrading the 300 level for fans.

Canada risks being left behind as green energy takes off
BNN
The shift to clean energy is producing huge economic gains, but Canada risks being left behind if the federal government doesn't get on board, a new report warns. That's the message from energy and climate think tank Clean Energy Canada, which paints a picture of a world increasingly embracing — and investing in – green energy alternatives. Clean energy is now "business as usual, it is not boutique any more," said Merran Smith, director of Clean Energy Canada. "This is where the puck is going... The world has changed and there is no going back."
