THE ENERGY BOMB

September 2, 2022

THE ENERGY BOMB
Cryptocurrency mining is an extremely energy-intensive process that threatens the ability of governments across the globe to reduce our dependence on climate-warming fossil fuels. If we do not take action to limit this growing industry now, we will not meet the goals set forth by the Paris Agreement and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to limit warning to 2 degrees Celsius. And cryptocurrency mining operations harm local communities now, including by increasing local pollution and impacting electricity rates and delivery. In our paper, we discuss several such examples where fossil-fueled cryptocurrency mining has increased local air, water, and noise pollution, increased costs on others, and increased climate pollution
at a time when we should be doing everything in our power to move in the opposite direction to mitigate the worst impacts of the climate crisis.

Scaling up the American wind industry

whitePaper | January 23, 2023

Since its inception in the 1980s, the wind industry has established itself as a critical source of clean, renewable energy – a role it must maintain into the future. Going forward, the continued growth of the global wind industry will prove ever more important, with DNV estimating that 5.6 terawatts of onshore wind energy and nearly three terawatts of offshore wind must be generated to achieve a “pathway to net zero” scenario by 2050

How Microgrids Contribute to the Energy Transition

whitePaper | January 20, 2023

Executive summary In the early 20th century, the centralization of electricity production made huge pro- gress, enabling significant economies of scale and improved power plant efficiency. Today, decentralization could help tackle the energy challenges of the 21st century by creating an optimized way to access reliable, green, and resilient energy. Microgrids are the emerging energy eco- system that provides practical answers through a local, interconnected energy system within clearly defined electrical boundaries, which incorporate loads, de- centralized energy resources, battery stor- age, and control capabilities

Better Plants 2021 Progress Update

whitePaper | October 27, 2021

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.
