Six Rockland County Communities Launch Innovative Renewable Energy and Cost Cutting Initiative

Six Rockland | October 06, 2020

Six Rockland County municipalities announced that they are launching a cost-cutting energy program to provide their residents and small businesses with more affordable, locally-sourced renewable energy. The initiative will be offered through Rockland Community Power (RCP), a collaborative program that enables residents and small businesses to purchase renewable energy at a fixed cost that is lower than they have paid historically for standard (non-renewable) electricity supply. The six participating communities—the Town of Clarkstown, Village of Haverstraw, Village of Nyack, Town of Orangetown, Village of South Nyack, and Village of Upper Nyack—are working in partnership with Joule Community Power (Joule) to offer the program that is scheduled to launch on November 1, 2020. Joule will serve as the Program Administrator.

As a member, Veritone will add its strong AI leadership and deep machine learning expertise to help utility decision-makers solve complex challenges resulting from the rise of renewable energy sources, new legislation, climate change, and the global push towards decarbonization. Like many other industries, utilities’ decision-makers and organizations like SEPA and UAI recognize the game-changing capabilities of AI, machine learning, automation, and analytics. Particularly with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) Order No. 2222 fostering competition in the wholesale energy market taking effect February 2022, there is no better time than now for Veritone to join these forward-thinking organizations. With our AI-driven energy solutions, together, we can fast-track our collective mission to make power delivery greener, cheaper, and more reliable as the nation transitions to a decarbonized future. Sean McEvoy, SVP, Energy Solutions, Veritone. Globally, we are going through an energy transition, shifting from fossil-based energy production and consumption systems to renewable energy sources. Unreliable green energy sources, new forms of energy storage and energy supply, and demand imbalances, however, may impact customer satisfaction and company profitability.

Diode Ventures Launches Large-Scale Renewable Energy, Data Infrastructure Partnership in South Korea

Diode Ventures | January 13, 2022

The Republic of Korea runs on several energy-intensive industries, but a lack of sufficient natural resources means that Asia's fourth-largest economy is forced to import nearly all its energy even as it works toward aggressive net-zero goals. To answer the country’s need for sustainable infrastructure, Diode Ventures (Diode), a wholly owned subsidiary of Black & Veatch, has entered into a joint venture agreement with Energy Innovation Partners (EIP), subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions, to develop, finance, build and operate renewable energy and data infrastructure projects in the Republic of Korea. The Republic of Korea imports nearly 96 percent of its energy, which presents a particularly tough challenge for a country that is working toward a 20-percent reduction in carbon emissions by 2030 and a net-zero economy by 2050. To get there, the country will need to significantly expand its renewable energy generation portfolio. Working together as The Green Korea Inc., the joint venture will offer the full life cycle of project development for solar, wind, battery energy storage, data centers and more, helping to advance the country’s sustainability initiatives. We believe the growing Korean market offers substantive opportunities to add value for our clients and support the evolution of greener, more sustainable energy infrastructure. The EIP team is a trusted partner for Diode, and we are excited to work with them under the banner of The Green Korea Inc. to perform development, engineering, procurement and construction services that will bring these critical projects to life.” Brad Hardin, president of Diode Ventures With its Green Growth National Strategy and Korean New Deal 2.0 – which invests 220 trillion won (USD$185 billion) across the economy, including billions in green infrastructure and renewable energy – the Republic of Korea is at the forefront of green economic growth planning. The Green Korea Inc. partnership is a direct answer to the country’s needs as it embarks on these large-scale projects to reduce carbon emissions and increase sustainability across its economy. “EIP is very confident in our ability to grow a sustainable and lasting infrastructure footprint in Korea in partnership with Diode,” said Heejun Park, president of EIP Asset Management. “This agreement marks an important milestone in our long-term relationship with Diode and Black & Veatch.” About Diode Ventures Diode Ventures is a developer of energy and data infrastructure, serving the commercial, industrial and technology sectors. With our partners, we offer our clients development services including site selection, capital assembly, project financing, EPC and O&M.
