Better Plants 2021 Progress Update

October 27, 2021

energy intensity reduction goals
As of October 2021, more than 250 companies have partnered with DOE in the Better Plants Program and Challenge. The Better Plants 2021 Progress Update reports that, to date, partners have saved more than $9 billion dollars and 1.9 quadrillion Btus of energy. Over 60 partners have met their initial energy reduction goals, and many have gone on to set new goals with the U.S Department of Energy. In 2021, twenty new companies joined the program, seven Better Plants partners achieved their energy intensity reduction goals and three partners that previously achieved their energy-intensity reduction goals repledged with new goals.

PLANNING MOZAMBIQUE’S OPTIMAL POWER SYSTEM EXPANSION

whitePaper | November 1, 2022

Mozambique has the largest power generation potential in the entire Southern African region thanks to its vast and largely untapped gas, hydro, wind and solar resources. Despite this huge generation potential only 38.6%1) of its population had access to electricity in 2021. The total installed power capacity in Mozambique stood at around 2,800 MW in the year 2021 whereas the peak demand reported by the state-owned energy utility Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM) was at 1,035 MW. Over 50% of the total electricity demand is originating from the capital area Maputo and the surrounding southern part of the country, while only around 20%2) of the population.

Achieving Sustainable Data Center Growth

whitePaper | October 23, 2022

Data centers today are estimated to constitute nearly 2% of global energy consumption. The decade-old fear of runaway growth in data center energy consumption hasn’t occurred. Hyperscale cloud service providers (CSPs) have largely managed that concern, with the help of industry vendors, through IT virtualization and higher utilization of power and thermal management infrastructure. At the same time, enterprises, usually less efficient than CSPs at managing data centers, have transitioned many of their workloads and applications to the cloud.
