Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    Designing A Fight Against Climate Change How architects can take action on climate change

    Victor Olgyay, May 1, 2017 (GreenBiz)

    “…[O]ur homes, offices, schools or shopping centers — and the architects who design them — either can exacerbate our climate problem or be a foundational part of the solution…While many leading architects have gained a competitive advantage in the market by practicing environmentally responsible design, the profession as a whole traditionally has not been seen as a leader in addressing climate change. The American Institute of Architects (AIA) wants to change that…[It called on members to] engage in energy modeling and engage in policy-making…be on top of incentives and financing options and understand the technology…[and design] beautiful buildings with enviable energy and financial performance…” click here for more

    New Energy Leaders Call For Real Grid Study Industry Groups Ask Secretary Perry for Study of Electricity Markets and Reliability to be ‘Open and Transparent’ Process; AEE, AWEA, SEIA note that low natural gas prices and slow demand growth are responsible for coal and nuclear plant retirements, not renewable energy growth

    May 1, 2017 (American Wind Energy Association, Solar Energy Industries Association, Advanced Energy Economy)

    “…[Leaders of] the wind, solar, and broad advanced energy industries have called on U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry to ‘initiate a public process’ to gather input to inform the 60-day study he has ordered on electricity markets and reliability…In a letter to Secretary Perry, [they] welcomed the Department of Energy’s examination of today’s electric power system, but stressed that the growth of wind and solar power neither accounts for the challenges now facing coal-fired and nuclear power plants in the nation’s electricity markets nor represents any threat to reliable electric power…[They insisted that numerous] studies have conclusively demonstrated that low natural gas prices and stagnant load growth are the principal factors behind the retirements in coal and nuclear plants…The industry groups also asked that the DOE study ‘follow standard practice and be conducted in an open and transparent manner,’ noting that it is ‘customary’ for agencies developing reports that provide policy recommendations to allow public comment on a draft, prior to the report being finalized…” click here for more

    How To Grow Cars With Plugs Electric Vehicles Are on the Rise: Here’s How to Sustain Their Growth

    Peter Rejcek, April 30, 2017 (SingularityHub)

    “The struggle for electric vehicles to gain legitimacy in a world dominated by supersized SUVs and overbearing big rigs is something of a David and Goliath story…[but Tesla just] became the most valuable automaker in the US, passing General Motors in total market value…It would seem to be no coincidence that at a time when electric vehicles appear poised for widespread adoption, solar and renewable energy have become cheaper than coal…There are only about 540,000 EVs on US roads today…[but] the Model 3 alone promises to nearly double the number of electric vehicles (including hybrids)…[However, there were more than 260 million vehicles in the US as of 2014…[so] EVs will still account for less than one percent of all vehicles…[For EVs to reach a market share of 30 percent or greater by 2030, there needs to be ] radical shifts in environmental and regulatory policy…There are very few places where such policies exist…” click here for more
