Industrial emissions have been steadily on the rise and could soon exceed emissions in the power sector as it continues its successful decarbonization efforts. As demand for industrial commodities grows in developing nations, it matters where these goods are produced. In the U.S., manufactured products are 40% more carbon efficient than the world average. Therefore, […]

Energy storage is considered the “holy grail” of energy because it allows for stockpiling unused power for when consumers need it the most. Currently, the U.S. electricity grid only has enough cumulative storage capacity to provide power for around 20 minutes – or a mere 10 seconds if only battery storage is considered. The development […]

Sustainable energy comes in many forms. In fact, sometimes energy can be found in a place you would least expect: trash! By burning municipal solid waste (MSW), waste-to-energy (WTE) facilities turn our garbage into energy, which is then harnessed to create electricity. The Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) and its Applied Research Foundation […]
