"After 50 years in power, it’s clear that NEPA and its current regulatory process is outdated and needs to be retired. Ambitious decarbonization plans look good on paper, but without clearing the regulatory roadblocks that hinder renewable development, consumers will be left in the dark."
"If the administration wants to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in an economically sustainable way, then his plan needs to focus on energy innovation like we have seen with wind, solar, and, especially, natural gas in recent years."
"In an ideal world replete with surplus renewable energy, maybe hydrogen has a future because then its inefficiency is negated by its convenience. But we aren’t in that situation right now, won’t be for decades, and might never be...But if our end goal is combating climate change and global warming, the best place for hydrogen is not cars."
"While RNG only makes a small percentage of our energy make-up today, the opportunities are tremendous and should be a part of the clean energy future New Jersey is pursuing. The more solutions we have to meet both our energy needs and environmental goals the better."
We cannot ignore the current and future impact of climate change on wildfires and other extreme weather events. But focusing solely on climate change misses the forest for the trees. If we ignore forest management and restoration, we’ll have far fewer of them.
"The Climeworks plant is composed of eight so-called air collection containers, which are stacked two high and arranged like a bracket around a central processing building. The containers have fans on one side, intake vents on the other and carbon-capturing filters in between. They are connected to the building by a series of steel pipes."
"This week is about celebrating the diverse energy resources we are so fortunate to have access to, from reliable baseload resources like hydroelectricity and innovative nuclear power technologies to solar, wind, and bioenergy sources that supplement energy portfolios in states across the nation."
