    QUICK NEWS, March 7: ‘Hamilton’ Playwright’s Climate Change Playlist; The Trump Attack On Energy Efficiency; How To Prepare The Grid For The Temperature Rise

    ‘Hamilton’ Playwright’s Climate Change Playlist Lin-Manuel Miranda releases climate change-themed playlist

    Rachel DeSantis, March 6, 2017 (Entertainment Weekly)

    “…[Hamilton playwright and lead actor]Lin-Manuel Miranda added environmental activist to his resume by tweeting] a Spotify playlist of songs about climate change, aptly titled, ‘Climb It, Change Is Real,’ in a dig to the members of the Trump administration who have denied the existence of climate change…The playlist consists of 16 different tunes, all of which include some reference to the Earth or weather, particularly extreme temperatures…[The list includes “It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)” by R.E.M. and “Hot in Herre” by Nelly and “This Is Why I’m Hot” by MiMs] and “Temperature,” by Sean Paul, among others…” click here for more

    The Trump Attack On Energy Efficiency White House plans to 'close out' Energy Star, other programs

    Emily Holden, March 6, 2017 (E&E Publishing)

    “A preliminary budget proposal from the White House would eliminate federal leadership of Energy Star, a popular voluntary program for companies to seek labels for energy-efficient consumer products and appliances…[A]chieving that might require changes to authorizing legislation from Congress…[The budget proposes transferring Environment Protection Agency energy efficiency programs to non-governmental entities as part of the Trump administration effort] to cut the agency's $8.2 billion spending by about a quarter to help increase defense spending…Energy efficiency advocates and state regulators say Energy Star is one of the programs that it doesn't make any sense to cut, because it saves people money while benefiting the environment…Energy savings experts say a nongovernmental Energy Star program, perhaps one run by industry, would not be as trusted or effective…” click here for more

    How To Prepare The Grid For The Temperature Rise How climate change will stress the grid and what ISOs are doing about it; Global warming is expected to increase peak demand and extreme weather events, but new grid planning practices can help ensure power reliability

    Herman K. Trabish, March 7, 2017 (Utility Dive)

    “…[W]hile climate change skeptics wring their hands over the theoretical costs of global warming, the nation’s electricity system operators are already feeling it — and planning for its future effects. Average temperatures are rising across the U.S., pushing grid operators to examine whether they have adequate capacity to meet higher power demand and sharper spikes in peak load…[ A new study projects electricity demand to increase 2.8% across the U.S. by the end of the century and 3.5% during the summer in] a business-as-usual scenario. In more extreme cases, peak demand could rise 7.2% to 18%...Meeting that demand could require $120 billion to $180 billion in new natural gas peaker plants. But smart planning could save a lot of that cost…James Hoecker, former chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), said that it is often difficult to get policymakers to respond to such long-term concerns…[but] stakeholders should plan today to prevent the need for costly system investments later…” click here for more
