A nearly daily update of energy-related news:

  • In the country’s latest attempt to stave off its power crisis, Venezuela’s president announced that all public sector workers will work a two-day work week for at least two weeks. The country has already implemented rolling blackouts and given government workers every Friday off to save power, but with water levels at the nation’s largest dam which provides 66 percent of the country’s power at its minimum operating level, additional measures are being taken.
  • Burlington, Vermont, became the first U.S. city to run on 100 percent renewable electricity. The electricity is acquired by biomass, hydroelectric, solar and wind energy with hydroelectric energy as its largest source of renewable power. The city has a population of 42,000.
