IEA: Reaching Climate Goals Requires Drastic Increase in Clean Energy Tech

A major effort to develop and deploy clean energy technologies worldwide is urgently needed to meet international energy and climate goals, particularly in order to reduce carbon emissions from areas beyond the power sector such as transport, buildings and industry, according to a new IEA report.With global carbon emissions at unacceptably high levels, structural changes to the energy system are required to achieve the rapid and lasting decline in emissions called for by the world’s shared climate targets. The IEA’s Energy Technology Perspectives 2020 (ETP 2020) analyzes more than 800 different technology options to assess what would need to happen to reach net-zero emissions by 2070 while ensuring a resilient and secure energy system.The report finds that transitioning just the power sec

Security for 2020 and Beyond with Solar, Battery & Lumin

Even in the midst of a pandemic, 2020 was the year to go solar for Alan and Kathy Clapp of Mashpee, MA. The right combination of technology and financial incentives brought them savings and peace of mind, with rooftop solar, battery backup, and intelligent energy load management. When Alan and Kathy built their home new 10 years ago, it was with the goal of creating a home that would be as sustainable and efficient as possible. Equally as important as good insulation and the actual construction of the house was deciding where they would source their energy. For heating and cooling they chose geothermal, knowing that it would transfer the burden of heating costs to their electric but save them money overall in fuel costs. Having worked in the solar industry for years in the development of...
