A longitudinal study of informational interventions to save energy in an office building. (1/98)

Informational interventions were employed to promote two behaviors relevant for efficient heating of individual offices in a large office building. In two successive winter seasons, interventions were applied during 4-week periods. Short-term effects were assessed weekly, and long-term effects were assessed 1 year after each of the two intervention periods. Improvements were observed in each intervention period, with partial behavior maintenance 1 year later. The changes observed in the individual offices across conditions are suggestive of the program's capacity to correct relapses in earlier proenvironmental behavior.  (+info)

Healthy communities must also be sustainable communities. (2/98)

The author contends that healthy communities must be both environmentally and socially sustainable, given that health depends on the quality of the built and natural environments, and that global change resulting from the industrial economy is affecting the web of life. He argues that suburban sprawl wastes scarce resources and disproportionately places those resources in the hands of suburban dwellers. Urban areas can be made more environmentally sustainable, especially with respect to energy consumption, which will help reduce air pollution and climate change and contribute in other ways to improved health.  (+info)

Performance of an age series of alnus-cardamom plantations in the Sikkim Himalaya: productivity, energetics and efficiencies. (3/98)

Biomass, net primary productivity, energetics and energy efficiencies were estimated in an age series of Alnus-cardamom plantations in the eastern Himalaya. The impact of stand age (5, 10, 15, 20, 30 and 40 years) on the performance of mixtures of N2-fixing (Alnus nepalensis) and non-N2-fixing (large cardamom) plants was studied. Large cardamom (Amomum subulatum) is the most important perennial cash crop in the region and is cultivated predominantly under Alnus trees. Net primary productivity was lowest (7 t ha(-1) per year) in the 40-year-old stand and was more than three times higher (22 t ha(-1) per year) in the 15-year-old stand. Agronomic yield of large cardamom peaked between 15 and 20 years of age. Cardamom productivity doubled from the 5- to the 15-year-old stand, and then decreased with plantation age to reach a minimum in the 40-year-old stand. Performance of cardamom in association of N2-fixing Alnus remained beneficial until 20 years of age. Annual net energy fixation was highest (444 x 10(6) kJ ha(-1) per year) in the 15-year-old stand, being 1.4 times that of the 5-year-old stand and 2.9-times that of the 40-year-old stand. Inverse relationships of production efficiency, energy conversion efficiency and energy utilized in N2-fixation against stand age, and a positive relationship between production efficiency and energy conversion efficiency suggest that the younger plantations are more productive. The Alnus-cardamom plantation system will be sustainable by adopting a rotational cycle of 15 to 20 years.  (+info)

The public health benefits of insulation retrofits in existing housing in the United States. (4/98)

BACKGROUND: Methodological limitations make it difficult to quantify the public health benefits of energy efficiency programs. To address this issue, we developed a risk-based model to estimate the health benefits associated with marginal energy usage reductions and applied the model to a hypothetical case study of insulation retrofits in single-family homes in the United States. METHODS: We modeled energy savings with a regression model that extrapolated findings from an energy simulation program. Reductions of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) emissions and particle precursors (SO2 and NOx) were quantified using fuel-specific emission factors and marginal electricity analyses. Estimates of population exposure per unit emissions, varying by location and source type, were extrapolated from past dispersion model runs. Concentration-response functions for morbidity and mortality from PM2.5 were derived from the epidemiological literature, and economic values were assigned to health outcomes based on willingness to pay studies. RESULTS: In total, the insulation retrofits would save 800 TBTU (8 x 10(14) British Thermal Units) per year across 46 million homes, resulting in 3,100 fewer tons of PM2.5, 100,000 fewer tons of NOx, and 190,000 fewer tons of SO2 per year. These emission reductions are associated with outcomes including 240 fewer deaths, 6,500 fewer asthma attacks, and 110,000 fewer restricted activity days per year. At a state level, the health benefits per unit energy savings vary by an order of magnitude, illustrating that multiple factors (including population patterns and energy sources) influence health benefit estimates. The health benefits correspond to 1.3 billion dollars per year in externalities averted, compared with 5.9 billion dollars per year in economic savings. CONCLUSION: In spite of significant uncertainties related to the interpretation of PM2.5 health effects and other dimensions of the model, our analysis demonstrates that a risk-based methodology is viable for national-level energy efficiency programs.  (+info)

An enhanced rate-based emission trading program for NOX: the Dutch model. (5/98)

Since 1997 government and industry in The Netherlands have been engaged in intensive policy discussions on how to design an emission trading program that would satisfy the Government's policy objectives within the national and international regulatory framework and accommodate industry's need for a flexible and cost-effective approach. Early on in the discussion the most promising solution was a rate-based approach, which dynamically allocated saleable emission credits based on a performance standard rate and actual energy used by facilities. All industrial facilities above a threshold of 20 MWth would be judged on their ability to meet this performance rate. Those "cleaner" than the standard can sell excess credits to others with an allocation that is less than their actual NOX emission. With some changes in law, such a design could be made to fit well into the national and EU legislative framework while at the same time uniquely meeting industry's requirement of flexibility toward economic growth and facility expansion. (An analysis of the legislative changes required will be given in a separate paper by Chris Dekkers.) However, the environmental outcome of such a system is not as certain as under an absolute emission cap. At the request of the Netherlands Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment (VROM), Automated Credit Exchange (ACE), in close cooperation with the working group of government and industry representatives introduced a number of features into the Dutch NOX program allowing full exploitation of market mechanisms while allowing intermediate adjustments in the performance standard rates. The design is geared toward meeting environmental targets without jeopardizing the trading market the program intends to create. The paper discusses the genesis of the two-tier credit system ACE helped to design, explains the differences between primary (fixed) and secondary (variable) credits, and outlines how the Dutch system is expected to function once implemented in 2004. The paper also discusses the market trading simulation held in early 2001 to assess and test the trading program, and reviews also the current status of the market program development.  (+info)

A structural model that explains the effects of hyperglycemia on collagenolysis. (6/98)

Prior investigations into the effects hyperglycemia on collagen degradation have yielded conflicting results. We present a new formalism for understanding the biochemistry of collagenolysis and the effects of hyperglycemia on collagen degradation. The analysis is based on an understanding of environments that affect the conformational stability of collagen. We suggest that collagen can exist in two distinct conformational states-a native state and a vulnerable state. Vulnerable collagen corresponds to a non-native conformation where partially unfolded regions near collagenase cleavage sites enable collagenases to efficiently degrade collagen. Theoretical calculations on collagen-like model peptides suggest that relatively short periods of hyperglycemia can alter the equilibrium distribution of states to favor vulnerable states of collagen. These data provide new insights into the mechanism of collagenolysis and resolve apparently discrepant experimental data on the effects of hyperglycemia on collagen degradation.  (+info)

Powering the future: how Hamilton Health Sciences put cogeneration to work for healthcare. (7/98)

The absolute necessity of a stable and uninterrupted power supply within hospitals makes many of these facilities uniquely suited to cogeneration plants. Hamilton Health Sciences recently completed the largest hospital cogeneration project ever undertaken in the country. Spanning three acute care hospitals and generating a combined total of 22.75 megawatts of electricity, Hamilton Health Sciences' cogeneration plants address energy supply issues by offering a clean and reliable power source completely within the hospital's control, and provide the organization with the potential to generate its own revenue into the future by selling excess electricity back to the province. The following article highlights Hamilton Health Sciences' approach to the project, including some important lessons learned, and may serve as an example for other publicly funded institutions interested in implementing similar projects.  (+info)

Health, environmental, and economic costs from the use of a stabilized diesel/ethanol mixture in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil. (8/98)

In Greater Metropolitan Sao Paulo, Brazil, fossil fuel combustion in the transportation system is a major cause of outdoor air pollution. Air quality improvement requires additional policies and technological upgrades in fuels and vehicle engines. The current study thus simulated the environmental and social impacts resulting from the use of a stabilized diesel/ethanol mixture in the bus and truck fleet in Greater Metropolitan Sao Paulo. The evaluation showed reductions in air pollutants, mainly PM10, which would help avert a number of disease events and deaths, as estimated through dose-response functions of epidemiological studies on respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. Valuation of the impacts using an environmental cost-benefit analysis considered operational installation, job generation, potential carbon credits, and health costs, with an overall positive balance of US$ 2.851 million. Adding the estimated qualitative benefits to the quantitative ones, the project's benefits far outweigh the measured costs. Greater Metropolitan Sao Paulo would benefit from any form of biodiesel use, producing environmental, health and socioeconomic gains, the three pillars of sustainability.  (+info)

In this regard EIOPA has given some definitions such as infrastructure asset, infrastructure project entity or special purpose entity which help to specify the structural sector risks.. In addition, EIOPA has made express reference to different types of risks linked to the infrastructure investments, such as predictability of cash flows, contractual framework, credit quality, political risk, structural requirements, financial risk, construction risk, operating risk, the design and technology risk and the equity risk calibration.. Thus, after a deep analysis of the sector and its appropriate risk management, EIOPA proposes that it is necessary to stipulate some steps and procedures to be implemented by undertakings to address the risks posed by such investments.. In this regard, EIOPAs advice asserts that undertakings need to have written policies covering all materiel risks to which they are exposed. In particular investment risk management, asset-liability management, liquidity risk ...
Three years after the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) commenced operations, this report analyses the Banks guidelines and past experience in selected countries (China, India, Bangladesh, Russia). We find that the AIIBs policies and strategies show a strong narrative of transformational change and sustainability. It is also the fastest-growing MDB in terms of both membership and capital investments. However, looking at investment criteria, the AIIB is not yet setting new standards in terms of Paris-alignment. The bank does also not yet reach international standards with regard to accountability, information disclosure and complaint handling.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Highway infrastructure investment and county employment growth. T2 - A dynamic panel regression analysis. AU - Jiwattanakulpaisarn, Piyapong. AU - Noland, Robert B..

N2 - This paper uses recent advances in dynamic panel econometrics to examine the impact of highway infrastructure on aggregate county-level employment using data for all 100 North Carolina counties from 1985 through 1997. Results are compared to models that do not take endogeneity of highway investment and dynamics of employment adjustment into account. Fully specified dynamic models are found to give insignificant results compared to these other models. Thus, when these issues are properly modeled, the results show that improvements in highways have no discernible impact on employment..

Despite the difficult economic climate, Portugal has continued to develop and reform its energy policies since the previous International Energy Agency (IEA) in-depth review in 2009. These changes have resulted in greater economic activity in the energy sector, increased renewable energy deployment, further market liberalisation and greater emphasis on energy efficiency in policy making. A new strategy emphasising renewable energy and energy efficiency has focused efforts on meeting national and European energy policy objectives, as Portugal seeks also to lower investment costs and greater national competitiveness. The new strategy includes proposals to reinforce interconnections with transnational European electricity and natural gas networks, and measures to promote economic and environmental sustainability. The strategy should accommodate regular independent reviews and monitoring tools to examine implementation of energy policy to ensure that it remains relevant and cost-effective.

EPI research shows that the U.S. economy would benefit enormously from an ambitious increase in public investment, including infrastructure investment. Such investment would create jobs and finally lock-in genuine full employment in the near-term, and would provide a needed boost to productivity growth (or how much income and output each hour of work generates in the economy) in the medium-term. Further, infrastructure investments would ensure that we do not leave future generations a deficit of underinvestment and deferred maintenance of public assets. Smart public investment should put the needs of the public first and should not undercut workers wages.. ...

Not surprisingly, in the weeks since the historical hurricane made landfall, new attention is being paid to the mounting costs that coastal world megacities may face. Intriguingly, however, this new conversation about climate, energy policy, and Americas reliance on fossil fuels comes after a five-year period in which the U.S. has dramatically lowered its consumption of oil and seen an equally dramatic upturn in the growth of renewable energy. The combination of declining oil use and a greater reliance on the global powergrid is going to shape energy and climate policy. Especially at a time when the concerns of climate change - or, rather, rising seas and the greenhouse dangers of fossil fuel dependency - are being increasingly raised. This will make for a rather muddled and complex array of diverging policy initiatives. Moreover, as new oil supplies emerge from domestic American sources, the dream of resurrecting this cheap oil era will no doubt come back around several more times. But none of these
Land use/land cover change will have a certain impact on the regional ecological environment. This study uses the questionnaire survey method, an opportunity cost method and a logistic model to evaluate the suitability of an ecological compensation standard for a winter- wheat-fallow cropping system in a groundwater funnel area in Hebei. The main factors affecting farmers willingness to fallow fields provide a theoretical basis for scientifically and rationally developing a rotation policy in the groundwater funnel area. The results indicate the following: (1) nearly 87% of the surveyed farmers would accept a winter-wheat-fallow policy, whereas 13% would not; (2) farmer educational level, the total number of participants in the agricultural labor force, dependency rate, farmers attitudes toward a winter wheat-fallow policy in the groundwater funnel area and the farmer level of trust in government policy have significant positive effects farmer intention to fallow, whereas the number of days of

The data collection effort began in July 1974 and continued through April 1976 as an ongoing project of the United States Federal Energy Administration (now the Department of Energy). Every two weeks, independent samples of the population were interviewed by the Opinion Research Corporation of Princeton, New Jersey, up to a total of 42 surveys containing information obtained from 23,426 respondents. The data were subsequently consolidated in a standard format, with an indication of the date of each survey to facilitate time-series analysis. Variables assessed respondents perceptions of the role of the federal government in energy policy, their knowledge and sources of information about energy, opinions of actual or potential government actions, and personal efforts to conserve energy. Questions were asked about driving habits, use of mass transit, ...
One hundred experts from governments, corporations, academia and civil groups around the globe gathered at the International Energy Agency (IEA) on 10 March to advise on energy policies and new technologies that could help reduce air pollution that each year causes millions of premature deaths and costs the global economy trillions of dollars.. The IEA organised the Energy and Air Quality workshop in Paris to generate input for a Special Report of the 2016 edition of the Agency flagship publication World Energy Outlook (WEO). To be released in June, the Special Report will identify actions to reduce the major role that the energy sector currently has in causing dangerous air pollution.. Air pollution leads to 7 million premature deaths each year, and much of it can be traced back to the energy sector, said IEA Executive Director Fatih Birol as he welcomed the participants to the Agencys headquarters in Paris. There is an urgent need to improve the air we breathe, which is why the IEA is to ...

Europes potential to develop a new generation of decarbonised energy technologies, such as off-shore wind, solar technology, or second generation biomass, is enormous. However EU energy research is often under-funded, dispersed and badly coordinated. If the opportunity facing the EU is to be seized, actions to develop new energy technologies, lower their costs and bring them to the market must be better organised and carried out more efficiently. This is why the European Commission is proposing the Strategic Energy Technology Plan, a comprehensive plan to establish a new energy research agenda for Europe. The Commission believes that Europe should lower the costs of clean energy and put EU industry at the forefront of the rapidly growing low carbon technology sector. This Plan is to be accompanied by better use of and increases in resources, both financial and human, to accelerate the development and deployment of low-carbon technologies of the future..

Downloadable (with restrictions)! Data envelopment analysis (DEA) has been widely used for environmental performance measurement at different levels. Most of environmental DEA models take the deterministic form without considering random factors. This paper presents a stochastic environmental DEA model that can measure environmental performance under random conditions. The proposed model has been applied to evaluate the environmental performance of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) economies in 2010. The results indicate that the stochastic pure environmental performance of APEC economies is indeed affected by random factors. Especially, the fluctuation of Republic of Koreas stochastic pure environmental performance is most obvious among all the APEC economies.

Downloadable! Based on the theoretical background of the link between countries transparency and environmental policy our paper provides empirical evidence for a sample of 68 countries for the time period of 2001-2010. By assuming that countries transparency levels shape their environmental policy which reflects upon their environmental performance levels, we develop an empirical model for investigating such a relationship. By modifying a conditional directional distance function model, we incorporate on the measurement of countries environmental performance the effect of their public sector transparency levels. The empirical results indicate that public sector transparency has a statistically significant impact on countries environmental performance with the relation in the case of emerging-developing economies appearing as an inverted W shape, whereas in the case of advanced-developed economies indicating an inverted U shape.

The virtual water trade is the idea that when goods and services are exchanged, so is virtual water. When a country imports one tonne of wheat instead of producing it domestically, it is saving about 1,300 cubic meters of real indigenous water. If this country is water-scarce, the water that is saved can be used towards other ends. If the exporting country is water-scarce, however, it has exported 1,300 cubic meters of virtual water since the real water used to grow the wheat will no longer be available for other purposes. This has obvious strategic implications for countries that are water-constrained such as those found in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) area.[2][3][4] Water-scarce countries like Israel discourage the export of oranges (relatively water intensive crops) precisely to prevent large quantities of water from being exported to different parts of the world. In recent years, the concept of virtual water trade has gained weight both in the scientific as well as in ...

In 2006, Prime Minister Harper remarked: Canadas environmental performance is, by most measures, the worst in the developed world. Weve got big problems.. Having acknowledged this glaring failing, an accountable, responsible government would have taken meaningful action to protect our fragile environment and the health and safety of Canadians, while building a vibrant green economy.. But the environment and sustainable development are not conservative priorities, and recent rankings of environmental performance clearly demonstrate this fact. The 2008 Climate Change Performance Index ranked Canada 56th of 57 countries in terms of tackling emissions. In 2009, the Conference Board of Canada ranked Canada 15th of 17 wealthy industrialized nations on environmental performance. In 2010, Simon Fraser University and the David Suzuki Foundation ranked Canada 24th of 25 OECD nations on environmental performance. And most recently, the Environmental Performance Index ranked Canada 37th of 132 countries ...
The regulation of the energy industry branches in the Far East is part of the general energy policy of Russia. Since 2008, most changes in regulation have been made with regard to the electricity, heat and oil industries.. 5.2.1 Electricity. For almost two decades Russia has been reforming its electrical energy industry. The state regulation of the industry has changed: vertically-integrated companies have been replaced by organizations specializing in separate activities, with the separation of the potentially competitive spheres (production, supply, repair and service) and the natural monopolies (transportation, operative management). A competitive market for wholesale and retail electricity has been created.. There are two levels for the electricity and power market in Russia: wholesale and retail. The wholesale market mostly operates in the regions combined into price zones - first (European Russia and Ural) and second (Siberia) - and non-price zones (Khabarovsk Krai, Primorsky Krai, Amur ...
Improved industrial energy efficiency is a cornerstone in climate change mitigation. Research results suggest that there is still major untapped potential for improved industrial energy efficiency. The major model used to explain the discrepancy between optimal level of energy efficiency and the current level is the barrier model, e.g., different barriers to energy efficiency inhibit adoption of cost-effective measures. The measures outlined in research and policy action plans are almost exclusively technology-oriented, but great potential for energy efficiency improvements is also found in operational measures. Both technology and operational measures are combined in successful energy management practices. Most research in the field of energy management is grounded in engineering science, and theoretical models on how energy management in industry is carried out are scarce. One way to further develop and improve energy management, both theoretically as well as practically, is to explore how a ...

The Lora dogs were presented to first responders during a Dec. 17 ceremony at the Region of Durham headquarters in Whitby. Responders will now distribute the soft Lora dogs when tending to people in traumatic situations to help provide a measure of comfort.. Epilepsy Durham Region community outreach associate Chelsea Kerstens says its crucial for epilepsy agencies to develop strong relationships with local first responders because police, fire and ambulance services are often the bridge that connects people who have epilepsy and require information or services with epilepsy support agencies.. The hope is that with the first responders understanding a little bit more about epilepsy and more about the community agencies that are available to clients, they will be able to connect with us quicker and ultimately learn more about living with epilepsy and all the pieces that come along with community epilepsy agencies, Kerstens tells Voices of Epilepsy.. The Lora dogs were created through Paws for a ...

Nowadays, buildings environmental certifications encourage the implementation of initiatives aiming to increase energy efficiency in buildings. In these certification systems, increased energy efficiency arising from such initiatives must be demonstrated. Thus, a challenge to be faced is how to check the increase in energy efficiency related to each of the employed initiatives without a considerable building retrofit. In this context, this work presents a non-destructive method for electric current sensing to assess implemented initiatives to increase energy efficiency in buildings with environmental certification. This method proposes the use of a sensor that can be installed directly in the low voltage electrical circuit conductors that are powering the initiative under evaluation, without the need for reforms that result in significant costs, repair, and maintenance. The proposed sensor consists of three elements: an air-core transformer current sensor, an amplifying/filtering stage, and a

It is a well-understood phenomenon that the use of diminishing fossil fuels is causing disturbances in atmospheric dynamics. This coupled with global population growth has resulted in increased energy demands, and increased waste loads. In order to tackle both important issues, energy-from-waste (EfW) technologies have been of great interest to the industry sector. Moreover, recently implemented fiscal incentives have significantly reduced investor risk, and incentivised deployment. A novel EfW technology known as plasma-arc can be considered as one of the most effective methods for the thermal treatment of waste. However, due to the exceptionally high operating and maintenance costs, it is being discredited by some for its commercial viability. Microwave-induced plasma, a novel method of producing high temperature plasma, is much more energy efficient and so has the potential to be a commercially viable treatment route for residual wastes. This study investigates the evolution, and heating ...
Four provinces in Canada (Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, and Quebec) have promulgated action plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. These plans have several broad components. There is a carbon pricing component; there are assortments of energy efficiency programs; there is a renewable energy component; and most of the plans have vehicle electrification components (or such programs have been enacted separately from the climate action plans).. For example, Albertas Climate Leadership Plan consists of five key elements: a coal-power phase-out by 2030, a tripling of renewable energy generation to reach 30 percent of generation by 2030, reducing emissions from the oil and gas sector, creating Energy Efficiency Alberta to deliver cost-saving programs, and implementing an economy-wide price on carbon.. Ontarios climate action plan contains similar efforts, including a Green Bank to fund efficiency programs, increasing vehicle electrification, running education programs for homeowners ...
Energy is crucial to the operation of a modern industrial and services economy. Recently, there have been growing concerns about the availability and cost of energy and about environmental impacts of fossil energy use. Those concerns have rekindled interest in energy efficiency, energy conservation, and the development and commercialization of renewable energy technologies.. Many of the existing energy efficiency and renewable energy programs have authorizations tracing back to the 1970s. Many of the programs have been reauthorized and redesigned repeatedly to meet changing economic factors. The programs apply broadly to sectors ranging from industry to academia, and from state and local governments to rural communities. Since 2005, Congress has enacted several major energy laws: the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPACT 2005; P.L. 109-58); the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA; P.L. 110- 140); the Energy Improvement and Extension Act (EIEA), enacted as Division B of the Emergency ...
On 19 January 2007, the Danish government released a policy statement, A Visionary Danish Energy Policy 2025, which contains proposals for the cost effective fulfilment of overall energy policy objectives for security of supply, environmental impact and competitiveness. The initiatives in the proposal combine political regulation and market mechanisms. The proposal is founded on the governments forward-looking vision of Denmark in the long-term being entirely independent of fossil fuels - coal, oil and natural gas. With a view to realising its vision, the government set the following targets prior to 2025: - A minimum 15% reduction in the use of fossil fuels compared with today. - Preventing an overall increase in energy consumption, while sustaining economic growth. With this in mind, the energy saving initiative will be increased to 1.25% annually. - The share of renewable energy must be increased to at least 30% of energy consumption by 2025. - A doubling of publicly funded research and ...

Introduction: The aim of this study was to determine the effect of thermal treatment on the flexural resistance of mechanically pre-fatigued rotary nickel-titanium (NiTi) endodontic instruments. Methods: New and mechanically pre-fatigued rotary NiTi instruments were subjected to thermal treatments at 350˚C, 400˚C and 450˚C for 30 minutes, and then were rotated in a fatigue-testing device until fracture. The time to fracture was recorded and multiplied by the number of rotations per minute to obtain the number of cycles to failure (NCF) for each group. One-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) followed by Tukey Kramer multiple-comparison post hoc test was used for the comparison between the different tested groups. Fractographic examination by scanning electron microscopy was also performed to study the morphological characteristics of the fractured instruments. Results: Statistical analysis showed that the thermal treatment at or below 400˚C of the new files did not improve the resistance to the ...

Nice going, Ken. The trade off…big biceps in the short term, but shrunk down and shriveled out parts in the places it matters most…a perfect metaphor for the renewable energy industry if ever there was one! In the case of Salazars juiced-out New Energy Economy, the photo ops (like Mark McGuires biceps) are big and bold, but the number of jobs and the amount of energy resulting from all this sound and fury is…how to say this…shriveled. Looking at the last numbers produced by the Department of Energy on subsidies and power generation by the solar industry displays the, um, diminished capacity of the roided out renewable energy field. In 2008, with subsidies of almost $25 per megawatt hour the solar industry created a piddling 1 million megawatt hours of electricity. By comparison, the coal industry created 1,946 times as much electricity at a subsidy of only 44 cents per megawatt hour. Even with all those government roids, green job creation has lagged behind the economy by a ...

Environmental performance metrics must support innovation and growth, if industry is fully to benefit from their potential to improve product design and boost the bottom line. Environmental metrics were not much of an issue when I started as a young engineer at General Motors 36 years ago. The metrics we used were the number of cars we produced and how good their quality was. What few environmental metrics we had were mainly driven by regulatory-agency audits. It is not that we were not responsible. I think we were. We were just as concerned then about clean air and clean water as we are today. But we did not have the metrics necessary to optimize our environmental performance or to understand the implications of our decisions on either our business or the environment. The critical measurement was the profit we made. Either we met our program volumes and profits, or we did not. Environmental performance was not a key factor in whether or not we met our business objectives. Over the
These energy efficiency savings are more than the entire current energy use of the state of California, and are larger than the annual energy use of 49 of the 50 states. These savings are more than triple those of 2005 energy legislation and about double those of 2007 energy legislation, and in turn will avoid about 661 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions in 2020, the equivalent of taking 110 million cars off the road for a year. The analysis examines the energy efficiency provisions in the discussion draft of the American Clean Energy and Security Act (ACESA), authored by Representatives Henry Waxman (D-CA) and Ed Markey (D-MA). This bill includes a variety of energy efficiency and renewable energy provisions as well as a cap-and-trade program to reduce emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases.. These energy efficiency savings are very substantial and will go a long way towards paying the cost of the cap-and-trade program in the bill, noted Steven Nadel, ACEEEs Executive ...

978 views. CHINA. The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank pledged to embark on more projects as the sole lender, as it boosts its membership and manages an investment pipeline of up to $7 billion.. The fledgling development bank, now in its second year, has already taken on projects by itself and it will do more going forward, AIIB President Jin Liqun said on Saturday in Jeju, South Korea, following the institutions second annual conference. Still, working together with other lenders is better particularly on large infrastructure deals, he said.. Of the 16 projects approved by the AIIB since it started in January 2016, around three quarters have been co-financed with other development lenders including the World Bank, Asian Development Bank, and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.. The China-led lender is now stepping up efforts to strengthen its credibility as a partner and alternative to the Japan-led ADB and the Washington-based World Bank.

The Brazilian Highlands or Brazilian Plateau (Portuguese: Planalto Brasileiro) are an extensive geographical region, covering most of the eastern, southern and central portions of Brazil, in all approximately half of the country's land area, or some 4,500,000 km2 (1,930,511 sq mi). In addition, the vast majority of Brazil's population (190,755,799; 2010 census) lives in the highlands or on the narrow coastal region immediately adjacent to it. Ancient basaltic lava flows gave birth to much of the region. However, the time of dramatic geophysical activity is long past, as there is now no seismic or volcanic activity. Erosion has also played a large part in shaping the Highlands, forming extensive sedimentary deposits and wearing down the mountains. The Brazilian Highlands are recognized for the great diversity to be found there: within the region there are several different biomes, vastly different climatic conditions, many types of soil, and thousands of animal and plant species. ...
