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.

Organic Photovoltaics – Truly Green Energy: “Ultra-Low Carbon Footprint”

whitePaper | March 30, 2020

The global warming effect is unequivocal, and solar energy will play a major role in the most important battle of the 21st century: enabling increased energy consumption while minimizing the impact on our environment. In order to achieve the climate protection targets as soon as possible, the environmental impacts must be quantified and should be effectively integrated into the competitive process. TÜV Rheinland (Germany) has certified the environmental impact of the solar film HeliaSol® to be below 16 kg CO2e/m² through a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). The result is an ultra-low carbon footprint ranging from 15 up to 3 g CO2e/kWh depending on the solar irradiation of a location.

Energy Company Obligations: Examples of delivering energy efficiency in Buildings and future trends

whitePaper | November 15, 2019

Today more than ever, there is an urgent need to scale up progress with energy efficiency. Energy efficiency is one of the pillars of a climate mitigation strategy1. It is also a critical element to meeting the global Sustainable Development Goals and to ensuring a cost-effective transition to a reliable, low-emitting energy system. At the same time, both states have increased their ambition to transition to low-emissions sources of energy, including increased ambition on renewable energy generation and energy efficiency. As a result, the programmes in New York and California have evolved to value the wider system benefits of energy efficiency, as described below.
