Comments Off on Postcards from an energy-inclusive future

Getting to 100 percent renewable energy in Hawaii by 20245 means granting energy access to “everyone, everywhere,” said Holmes Hummel, director of Clean Energy Works and former senior policy advisor in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Policy and International Affairs. “It gives me hope that 30 years after 2045, we may be able to celebrate an energy sector that is fossil-free worldwide,” she said. To do that, the International Energy Agency said that $1 trillion of energy investment capital must be deployed every year for over the next decade.

Comments Off on Burlington, Vermont Now Runs on 100% Renewable Energy

Burlington, Vermont, a city of 42,000 people, is now powered by 100 percent renewable energy sources – most of the time, at least. The city set itself this target around a decade ago, and recently completed the transition to renewables when the Burlington Electric Department bought a 7.4-megawatt hydroelectric system on the Winooski River near the city’s border. The hydro scheme joined the city’s existing wind-powered systems  and a biomass facility, which processes leftover woodchips from the local logging industry.
