The new coalition government needs to introduce policies to promote energy efficiency and renewable energy for the UK to meet official emissions targets, says a new report.
The energy we use in our homes is responsible for one quarter of the carbon emissions in the UK - and that's a lot of emissions. Of course, few of us can wipe out our carbon footprint completely, but we can all make our homes more energy efficient. It not only helps save the planet, it can save money, too.
The efficiency of the power supplied by these renewable energy sources can be maximized when paired with an energy storage system. What better way to do than using the high-capacity energy storage system (ESS) solutions to meet the global energy requirement.
I thought that you might be interested in a real-life data center situation that arose recently in China: We’d been approached by a customer who wanted to lower its data center PUE to below 1.5 for a variety of reasons, not least of which included reducing energy costs and carbon emissions.
Google plans to become carbon neutral at the same time promote green energy by entering into a 20-year agreement to buy power from an Iowa wind farm. The farm, part of NextEra Energy Resources in Story and Hardin counties, will sell Google 114 megawatts of renewable power. Google says that the energy it will buy is enough to power several of its data centers.
