Heat Pump champion - NRDC
Jessica Russo, NRDC
H2 View -The state of California has one of the world’s largest networks of hydrogen fueling stations, and is home to about 7,500 hydrogen fuel cell cars, as well as a number of hydrogen transit buses. The Commission recently announced the release of over $45m to help fund the next round of stations.
ACEEE - The Department of Energy (DOE) made major changes to its Process Rule that will add new steps to the already lengthy standard-setting process. It will significantly increase the energy savings threshold needed to trigger the process and allow manufacturers to largely design the testing that decides if the products meet standards.
Yahoo Finance - SoCalGas today announced that four additional Central Valley dairies have started sending methane produced from cow manure to Calgren's biogas operation in Pixley, where it is processed into high-quality, renewable natural gas (RNG) and injected into SoCalGas' system.
NRDC - In a groundbreaking vote, California has allocated nearly $45 million toward boosting highly efficient electric heat pump technology that can help avoid burning fossil fuels to heat our water, as well as store California’s abundant pollution-free solar energy to give us piping-hot showers when the sun isn’t shining.
