Waste-to-Energy; National Community Solar Summit; NRC final rule


POV: Power Breakfast
A nearly daily update of energy-related news:
  • There are conflicting opinions when it comes to waste-to-energy efforts.  Two thought leaders – Nickolas J. Themelis and Jeffrey Morris – present their views on what is to be done with the 1.4 billion tons of municipal solid waste produced each year – a number that is forecasted to double in the next 10 years.
  • The National Community Solar Summit is meeting today at the White House where the Obama Administration is announcing 68 cities, states and business that are partnering to promote community solar.  There will be an emphasis on increasing solar energy for low and moderate income households. Currently, there are at least three Texas based companies, organizations and universities that have joined this effort.
  • The NRC has issued a final rule that amends how they add or edit rules, called the petition for rulemaking (PRM) process. The NRC has updated their website to better explain how to submit a petition.
