    QUICK NEWS, February 24: GE ADDS $10BIL COMMITMENT TO ECOIMAGINATION; MANY WILL ACT TO STOP CLIMATE CHANGE; WHERE THE MONEY FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY IS

    GE ADDS $10BIL COMMITMENT TO ECOIMAGINATION GE to invest a further $10B on 'ecoimagination' energy R&D

    Ernest Scheyder with Terry Wade and Leslie Adler, February 24, 2014 (Reuters)

    “General Electric Co plans to intensify research focusing on complex energy projects such as waterless fracking and gas turbine efficiency by earmarking an additional $10 billion through 2020 for its ‘ecoimagination’ budget…The research budget shows how reliant GE has become on the energy industry, its fastest growth area, as it works to become a dominant supplier of equipment and services to oil, natural gas and alternative power companies…[Ecoimagination has brought in $160 billion in revenue by creating new products and saved $300 million on water and emissions costs. The] new commitment gives investors a clue as to what the company's priorities will be into the next decade…[Ecoimagination] was formed in 2005…and has cost nearly $15 billion…While the overall goals of the project will remain, a larger percentage of the funds will go to energy-related projects…[This] is part of GE's larger research and development budget, worth roughly $5 billion to $6 billion per year…” click here for more

    WHERE THE MONEY FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY IS New Lessons on Driving Demand for Energy Efficiency Financing

    Casey Bell, February 20, 2014 (American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy)

    “Recent months have seen some exciting developments in energy efficiency finance. Investment funds, capitalized at about $200 million, are set to break into the potentially extensive market for energy efficient projects in the buildings sector…[T]he critical next step is to drive demand for energy efficiency improvements and connect this demand with available capital…[A] lack of customers actively seeking financing for energy efficiency improvements is the number one barrier to participation in the market for small to mid-size lenders…[L]enders also identified uncertainty around best practice methods for validating and underwriting energy savings as substantive key barriers…Developing [the customer base] will require a better understanding of how to serve those customers better…” click here for more
