    OHIO FREEZES NEW ENERGY THRU 2017 Ohio renewable energy and efficiency rules frozen for two years as Gov. John Kasich signs legislation

    John Funk, June 13, 2014 (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich on Friday signed Senate Bill 310, a Republican-sponsored and utility backed measure freezing the state’s mandates for renewables and efficiency until 2017. The bill was opposed by consumer, business, and environmental coalitions, as well as Honda and Whirlpool, on the grounds that the efficiency saves more than it costs and the renewables mandate produced over $1 billion in investments. Industrial power users like Timken and Alcoa sided with utilities in support of the legislation on the grounds that utility programs to push electricity usage cuts are redundant to free market drivers and too expensive. The bill also creates a legislative study committee that could recommend the legislature permanently amend or freeze the rules. The American Lung Association, the National Wildlife Federation, the Moms Clean Air Force in Ohio, and the Natural Resources Defense Council stridently objected to the bill. click here for more

    UTILITY TO BE COAL-FREE BY 2016 W/NAT GAS, BIG SOLAR Texas utility chooses solar, claims it will be ‘coal free’ by 2016

    Andy Colthorpe, 16 June 2014 (PV-Tech)

    El Paso Electric (EPE) has announced it is ready to meet the new EPA emissions regulations and, through the use of new natural gas and utility scale solar generation like its 50 megawatt Macho Springs and 10 megawatt Newman Solar PV plants, expects to be 100% coal free by 2016…It expects to get 6% of its total generation from solar by the end of 2014…CEO Tom Shockley said the 300 days of sun in the west Texas and southern New Mexico region EPE serves is ideal for drawing on solar energy to generate electricity for its 395,000 customers… click here for more

    THE BLDG AIR QUALITY BIZ TO BOOM Indoor Air Quality Monitoring and Management; Sensors, Energy Recovery Ventilation, Displacement Ventilation, Demand-Controlled Ventilation, Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems, and Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation for Improving Indoor Air Quality

    2Q 2014 (Navigant Research)

    “…[Good indoor air quality (IAQ)] monitoring and management processes involve the application of technologies… including CO2 sensors, demand-controlled ventilation (DCV), energy recovery ventilation (ERV), dedicated outdoor air systems (DOASs), ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI), displacement ventilation (DV), and underfloor air distribution (UFAD). These technologies are being adopted because they typically improve building operations while reducing energy use and improving IAQ. Due to new standards and regulations, as well as a rebound of the global economy, some of these technologies are being accepted for use in more buildings. However, this adoption is still limited by the rate of the global economic recovery…[For growth, architects, engineers, and building owners] must be willing to change the way buildings have been built in the past. Navigant Research forecasts that global revenue for IAQ monitoring and management technologies will increase from $3.1 billion in 2013 to $5.6 billion in 2020…” click here for more
