Akron-based FirstEnergy Corp. played a major role in the reduction. While it has continued to operate its two nuclear plants that don't emit any meaningful carbon, the company closed several coal-fired power plants in Ohio and boosted its use of renewable energy.
The decline is attributed to the advent of cheap shale gas which has caused new natural gas power plants to come online in Ohio and nearby states that sell their power into Ohio on a shared electric power grid. That's all while companies like FirstEnergy have shuttered coal plants that can't compete economically with natural gas-fired plants.
In 2005, approximately 88 pct of Ohio's electric power was coal generated. Today it is closer to 50 pct, according the the EIA.
Over 60 generation units at about 20 coal-fired plants have been closed down in Ohio since 2010.

Under RGGI, New Hampshire and nine other states take part in a market-based program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, The emissions are capped but companies can purchase allowances at state-run auctions, the proceeds from which can be spent as states see fit. New Hampshire uses 15 to 20 pct of the money to fund energy-efficient and energy efficiency projects as determined by the Public Utilities Commission.
House Bill 592, which would direct all money raised at RGGI auctions directly back to ratepayers and end investments in local and municipal clean energy initiatives, is being opposed by the League of Conservation Voters on the grounds that RGGI is intended to reduce carbon emissions in power plants.
Participating RGGI states include Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont. To date, the RGGI auctions have raised $2.7 billion that is earmarked for clean-energy and energy efficiency programs.

The Fund is unique in that it pays dividends out in carbon credits, not cash. Using the principle of additionality -- where an investment allows a new sustainability effort to exist -- companies can voluntarily offset their greenhouse gas emissions along with their own carbon-reduction efforts while providing resources to vulnerable communities around the world.
The carbon credits are certified by Gold Standard, established by the World Wildlife Foundation in 2003 to guarantee and benchmark the climate impact of a project and its contribution towards improving the daily lives of local communities and their economy.

In addition to Boyle's work, the team will collect data on a large scale to gain insight into genetic elements that control metabolic shifts responsible for lipid accumulation. This information will then be used to develop synthetic biology tools to enable fast and efficient engineering of the algae's cells. Boyle notes there are two main challenges in developing high-yielding algae strains. "First, our understanding of genetic regulation and cellular physiology lags behind other model organisms like E. coli and yeast." "Second, we don't have sophisticated genetic tools to introduce the desired changes."

Although the University of Bristol process is currently able to produce a few hundred grams of butanol from beer, researchers predict the fuel can be used on an industrial scale within 5 years.
According to lead researcher
Professor Duncan Wass, "Alcoholic drinks are an ideal model for industrial ethanol fermentation broths as ethanol for fuel is essentially made using a brewing process. If our technology works with alcoholic drinks -- especially with beer which is the best model -- then it shows it has the potential to be scaled up to make butanol as a petrol replacement on an industrial scale.
However, the point is not for beer to become the main source of transport fuel, but rather for it to offer important lessons learned for the butanol technology to be further developed."
