"In an effort to reduce CO2 emissions, globally, Honda intends for two-thirds of its automobile sales to be electrified by 2030 and is making substantial investments for the production of electrified vehicles in America, including the recently-refreshed Accord Hybrid, CR-V Hybrid, Insight and the Acura NSX hybrid supercar."
"The clean energy transition is here, and it can’t be done without nuclear. As the largest source of carbon-free, reliable power, we are committed to building on the skills and infrastructure of the past and leading the nation toward a revitalized grid and carbon-free energy future."
"Investors and entrepreneurs are waking up to the potential of geothermal energy, an overlooked and undercapitalized clean energy source. New geothermal technologies could enable the earth's heat to provide as much as 16 percent of U.S. electricity by 2050, according to the U.S. Department of Energy's 2019 study GeoVision: Harnessing the Heat Beneath Our Feet."
"Weather data can improve supply chain efficiencies while reducing emissions and fuel usage. For example, historically, routing decisions in the aviation sector have been made using worst-case weather scenarios which are more operationally restrictive. Advanced forecasting capabilities offer more accurate, detailed, and specific data for flight management."
"If the world is serious about developing a massive clean hydrogen economy, hydrogen from nuclear power has to be given serious consideration. It is the only low-carbon option that is deployable at large scale, and that operates with a high capacity factor."
"MethaneSat will be able to capture leaks as low as 5 kilograms per hour per square kilometer — and 'if there’s an oil and gas producing area that’s leaking less than that, you’re doing really, really well' in preventing typical emissions, he said."
"Rented at a per-acre cost, the geo-fenced robots drive along planted rows, capturing images of crops that get uploaded and run through a model trained to classify each image. Weeds get the chop. Vegetables remain. The more time a robot spends at a given farm, the better the AI gets, and so does the weeding. To date, FarmWise’s robots have imaged about 200 million individual crops and partnered with about a dozen of the largest vegetable farms in the U.S."
"Disney World recently announced a major upgrade to its resort that will enable the park to obtain nearly half of its energy from solar power. This news is just one element of a major push from the company to decrease its carbon footprint around the world."
"So what exactly do you get for $60,000? In short, a surprisingly sleek looking five-seat crossover with an expected range of more than 300 miles. If that range seems a bit low compared to the 360 miles of a Model X, it should be noted that GM is usually conservative on these estimates and the Bolt can easily outperform its 259-mile rating. Conversely, Tesla’s tend to fall short of their official ratings."
