In a story Dec. 7 about Duke Energy weighing compensation for neighbors living near coal ash pits, The Associated Press reported erroneously that the compensation costs will be passed along to power consumers. Costs will be borne by shareholders. A headline reported erroneously that Duke Energy was negotiating compensation. The company is internally considering compensation offers.

Coronavirus Pandemic Impacting Solar, Storage and other Energy Sectors

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted just about every sector of the economy, and that now includes the energy sector, according to analysts and media reports. Beyond just constricting demand, the virus had begun to undermine energy-related supply chains; the solar, utility storage and electric vehicle industries may be particularly hard hit, according to experts. The pandemic likewise threatens to divert regulatory attention from ordinarily pressing energy matters to other more urgent issues. Energy regulators in Texas and elsewhere, for instance, have ordered or encouraged utilities to suspend nonpayment disconnections because of the crisis.

To maintain the goals of the Paris Agreement and save the Earth from ecological breakdown, one of the most important things experts agree we need to do is transition to a renewable energy economy. While most of us may associate renewable energy with wind energy and solar energy, there are several other sources of clean energy that are growing in popularity. One such source is geothermal energy.

OPTIMIZING COGENERATION POWER PLANTS TO MANAGE RENEWABLE ENERGY EFFICIENTLY AND ECONOMICALLY

Article | March 17, 2020

A cogeneration, or Combined Heat and Power (CHP), plant uses a heat engine or power station to produce electric and thermal energy simultaneously from a single fuel source. A primary benefit of using a cogeneration system is that it can capture thermal energy for heating that is otherwise wasted in a conventional power plant. Utility companies today face the challenge of transitioning to the utilization of renewable energy for both electricity production and district heating systems.

How heat can be used to store renewable energy

Article | March 17, 2020

The effect that fossil fuels are having on the climate emergency is driving an international push to use low-carbon sources of energy. At the moment, the best options for producing low-carbon energy on a large scale are wind and solar power. But despite improvements over the last few years to both their performance and cost, a significant problem remains: the wind doesn’t always blow, and the sun doesn’t always shine. A power grid that relies on these fluctuating sources struggles to constantly match supply and demand, and so renewable energy sometimes goes to waste because it’s not produced when needed.
