A nearly daily update of energy-related news:

  • Former EPA administrators, Christine Whitman and William Reilly, discussed nuclear energy’s role in achieving the country’s goal of reducing carbon emissions at the Stanford School of Public Policy. Part of their discussion included the economic and political factors of closing nuclear facilities and its impact on air quality and quality of life. Whitman praised nuclear energy’s role in reducing carbon emissions and stated that nuclear energy currently represents 63 percent of the country’s clean energy and about 19 percent of the overall energy produced.
  • According to the U.S. Energy Storage Monitor, there was a 126 percent increase in total energy storage deployed in Q2 over Q1 with 41.2 megawatts of energy storage deployed. Executive Director of the Energy Storage Association, Matt Roberts, believes that the energy storage industry is set to grow another 30 percent in 2016 helping to add flexibility and efficiency to the country’s power grid.
