    QUICK NEWS, June 10: THE NEW ENERGIES ON EPA’S EMISSIONS RULE; NEW SOLAR BUILD FOR AIR FORCE; SMALL BLDG ENERGY MANAGEMENT BIZ TO QUINTUPLE TO $1.3BIL

    THE NEW ENERGIES ON EPA’S EMISSIONS RULE Industry groups, utilities react to proposed EPA power plant emissions rule

    Editors, June 2, 2014 (Utility Products)

    Reactions came from every corner of the energy industry to the proposed Obama administration emissions regulations that would cut U.S. CO2 to 30% below 2005 levels by 2030 but leave each state free to choose between means such as increased use of natural gas, renewables, or energy efficiency or a free-market-based cap-and-trade system for emissions credits…

    Business Council for Sustainable Energy President Lisa Jacobson: "…94 percent of all new electric power capacity built in the US since 1997 has come from natural gas or renewable energy…[T]he US can meet the new regulations affordably and reliably, while creating new jobs."

    American Wind Energy Association CEO Tom Kiernan: "Reducing carbon pollution through the deployment of wind energy can be done in a manner that keeps electricity affordable and reliable, creates jobs, and supports local economic development…"

    American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity CEO/President Mike Duncan: “If these rules are allowed to go into effect, the administration for all intents and purposes is creating America’s next energy crisis…These guidelines represent a complete disregard for our country’s most vital fuel sources…[T]he rule threatens the energy reliability and economic promise we enjoy today…”

    Alliance to Save Energy President Kateri Callahan: "Energy efficiency is our country's cheapest, cleanest, most abundant and most readily available energy resource…By allowing and encouraging energy efficiency as a compliance mechanism, this rule has the potential to greatly advance the nation's energy productivity…"

    Solar Energy Industries Association President/CEO Rhone Resch: "For state regulators looking to meet the new EPA standards, solar can be a game-changer…" click here for more

    NEW SOLAR BUILD FOR AIR FORCE Company announces plan for 2nd solar plant at Nellis AFB

    Eli Segall, June 4, 2014 (VegasInc)

    NV Energy selected SunPower to build a 19 megawatt addition to the solar installation at Nellis Air Force Base…Pending approval by the Nevada Public Utility Commission, NV Energy, a subsidiary of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Energy group, will pay up to $54.5 million for the new solar capacity addition to the 14 megawatt solar installation built at Nellis by SunPower in 2007...NV Energy is moving ahead with the mandated closure of three units of the 800 megawatt coal-fired Reid Gardner Generating Station by the end of this year and the fourth by the end of 2017...

    It will meet Nevada’s 25% renewables by 2025 mandate by adding nearly 500 megawatts of natural gas, 200 megawatts of utility-scale solar, issuing three 100 megawatt RFPs for solar, geothermal, and wind, and building a new high voltage line connecting the state’s northern and southern service areas that will sustain the utility’s resource diversity, capacity, and flexibility as it moves away from coal. Its participation in an emerging western region Energy Imbalance Market, along with PacifiCorps, another utility member of the Berkshire Hathaway Energy unit, will add further reliability. click here for more

    SMALL BLDG ENERGY MANAGEMENT BIZ TO QUINTUPLE TO $1.3BIL Energy Management for Small and Medium Buildings; Building Energy Management System Software, Services, and Hardware: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

    2Q 2014 (Navigant Research)

    “The small and medium commercial building (SMCB) market is as diverse as it is large, consisting of buildings of all ages, sectors, and management regimes. Building energy management systems (BEMSs) represent a technology offering that can enable buildings to improve performance, save energy, and comply with regional codes and laws…BEMSs are poised to be a tool that enables cost and carbon savings in small and medium buildings. These systems have traditionally focused on two key functions – energy visualization and energy analytics. Today, the market is expanding into adjacent functions, such as demand response (DR) and property management…and engaging a broader set of players in the global buildings market. Navigant Research forecasts that the global SMCB BEMS market will grow from $231.3 million in 2013 to $1.3 billion in 2022…” click here for more
