Universities around the world are realizing the importance of sustainable practices and are working towards shrinking their carbon footprint by focusing on renewable energy resources, clean technology, and carbon offsets. This guide will provide complimentary information on carbon credits along with case studies where universities have incorporated them into their sustainability strategy. Also included: tips for identifying high-quality credits and avoiding low-quality credits that do not reduce carbon emissions. Read this guide to learn more about what carbon credits are and how to navigate the process of measuring, assessing, and obtaining carbon credits.
In 2017, Europe produced more Of its electricity from solar, wind and biomass resources than from coal.
Today's market is more volatile, with greater variability in energy sources due in large part to the desire to reduce environmental damage. The European Union (EU) is on track to achieve its 2020 goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 20% compared to 1990 levels l by reducing its reliance on carbon-based power.
This paper examines the five most critical variables that investors, developers, and others must recognise in the due diligence process before investing in a new power generation project in Europe.
By simplifying the ability of companies to securely extract, orchestrate and act on data from when it is generated by energy assets to when it is transmitted to the cloud, Octave simplifies the development and commercialization of Energy IoT applications. With Octave, energy companies are empowered to realize the Energy IoT’s tremendous potential, with new demand response, energy efficiency optimization, predictive maintenance and other applications that maximize the value created by energy assets and minimize their environmental impact. In doing so, these Energy IoT applications can reduce energy costs, improve customer engagement, lower greenhouse gas emissions and increase energy reliability.
Start with Sierra to learn more about how our Octave D2C data orchestration solution can help you bring to market Energy IoT applications that reimagine the future of energy.
Cities need to rethink public transport systems to meet consumer demand for flexible, on-demand services. By doing this, they can also unclog congested roads, improve safety and reduce carbon emissions.
Read this insight to discover:
• how patterns of mobility are changing in major cities
• what customers want – and the key challenges to meeting their expectations
• whether microtransit solutions can be an effective complement to traditional public services
• three key levers to pull to develop responsive, demand-driven services.
When energy use is reviewed at a national or international level
we realize that about 35% of the western world’s total energy
and carbon dioxide (CO2) footprint is linked to transport and
a large fraction of that with freight movement.
Collectively, cars and trucks account for nearly one-fifth of all
U.S. emissions, emitting around 24 pounds of CO2 and other
global-warming gases for every gallon of gas1.
So, if we are to reduce energy usage and abate CO2 emissions
and deliver cost savings, it is essential that a lot of attention is
paid to commercial transport.
Priorities for Increasing Fuel Economy explores these challenges
and provides the essential information you need to help you achieve
competitive advantage across your commercial fleet operations.
With the reelection of President Obama, we can expect air issues to take center stage on EPA’s agenda.
President Obama will continue efforts to reduce carbon pollution. He sees climate change as a real threat, especially in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, which may have given a boost to the President, who is perceived as showing strong leadership. The mega-storm also highlighted the differences between the Republicans and Democrats on the role of government. Cap and trade legislation and regulation for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions will be revived in Obama’s second term. Affected industry sectors can expect an up tempo on regulation as the issue is fought out in a still divided Congress.
