Richard Ottinger, Karl Rabago, John Bowie and a greater team contributed to the recently completed the UN Environemtnal Guide for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy laws.
This month, at a forum for Energy Storage and Microgrids, Gary Wetzel stated, “[t]he energy industry is set to follow in the footsteps of the digital industry.” What he means by this is that the energy industry is set to become decentralized. Just as we once relied on mainframe computers that took up entire rooms, and now have use smart phones with substantially more computing power - energy production is set to become more decentralized.
Summer is rapidly approaching with it high temperatures that spur energy demand, which, in turn, exacerbates climate change through the emission of more GHGs from our electricity generating stations. Throughout the nation, peak demand, that is the traditional hallmark of lazy summer afternoons that get hotter as our planet warms, lead to brownouts because of the lack of nationwide incentives for conservation.
