Award recipients included four organizations that have invested in green and high-efficiency buildings: the Glenn Group, Harrah's Reno Hotel and Casino, the University of Nevada, and the Veterans Administration Hospital. Reno also recognized two notable ENERGY STAR certified buildings -- JC Penney's Logistics Center and Silver Lake Apartments -- both of which had recorded significantly lower energy consumption than their peers across the nation.
In addition, the City lauded eleven leaders in the city's ReEnergize Reno energy efficiency challenge program. Through the program, launched in October of last year, commercial, industrial, and multifamily buildings have committed to cut their energy consumption 20 pct by 2025.

The programme was designed in collaboration with climate expects from Ricardo Energy and Environment who will work closely with the cities to develop their action plans and support greater vertical integration between the city and national government climate strategies.
The support will include a dedicated City Advisor based in each City, a series of workshop, and access to expert technical advice as needed. Nairobi and Abidjan have also joined the programme and are anticipated to submit their climate action commitments soon.

States like South Australia and Victoria have begun ramping up their renewable energy capacity, and grid managers are beginning to focus on integrating energy storage -- i.e. the mammoth Hornsdale Power Reserve, a 129 MWh Tesla lithium-ion energy storage facility in South Australia, which was turned on for the first time towards the end of 2017.
The new $7 million ($5.23 million US) in funding seeks to further develop new technologies that can provide grid stability and security services as well as support projects such as system strength provision, frequency control ancillary services (FCAS), fast frequency response (FFR), inertia provision and measurement, and other services that may enhance system security.
The Hornsdale Wind Farm in South Australia was a beneficiary of funding from ARENA to trial frequency control ancillary services (FCAS) (as was the 168 MW Musselroe Wind Farm in Tasmania which is still underway) and is now registered for six of eight FCAS markets in Australia. The project will provide valuable insights into the cost-benefit of using pre-curtailment to provide FCAS services from a new technology source.

Veridium, a collaborative initiative of EcoSmart Labs, Brian Kelly Capital Management, IDEAcarbon, Everland and CBL Markets, will leverage IBM's blockchain technology and expertise to transform carbon credits into a new type of digital asset that can be redeemed and traded. IBM will provide the token architecture and token interface with its various industry specific Hyperledger Fabric blockchain platforms.
According to Veridium, integrating the entire process of carbon accounting and offsetting into a digital token on a public, permissioned blockchain network can help make measuring environmental impact, transferring ownership rights, and redeeming the underlying carbon offset more efficient.
The token, called VERDE, will represent carbon accounting and offsetting backed by environmental assets, including Triple Gold REDD+ credits from InfiniteEARTH, which authored the first REDD+ forest carbon accounting methodology, a protocol now embodied in the UN Paris Agreement.

"I'm done playing around. I've supported Pruitt but if he pushes changes to RFS that permanently cut ethanol by billions of gallons he will have broken Trump's promise and should step down and let someone else do the job of implementing Trump's (biofuel) agenda. Trump was elected with an agenda; Pruitt was not elected," Grassley said.
Grassley's position is in response to growing farm-state frustration with the EPA's management of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) compelling refiners to use biofuel such as corn-based ethanol. Iowa is a top producer of both corn and ethanol.

California's Building Energy Efficiency Standards -- Title 24, Part 6 -- guide residential and non-residential building and construction across the state. The standards help to ensure energy efficiency in new construction to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions associated with buildings, as well as to lower energy costs for California customers. As a result, single family homes built to the latest 2016 standards will use approximately 28 pct less energy for lighting, heating, cooling, ventilation and water heating than homes built to the 2013 standards. The state programs offer incentives for building above energy efficiency code requirements based on standard energy design ratings.
Based on PG&E's existing California Advanced Homes Program for new home construction, eligible customers can apply for the new Advanced Energy Rebuild Program to receive up to $17,500 for rebuilding sustainably. Condominiums, apartments and in-law units will be eligible for a portion of the incentives. The program is available through December 31, 2019 or until funds are exhausted.
For business owners, the Savings by Design program currently offers incentives up to $150,000 per building. PG&E will increase the incentives to up to $300,000 per building. Additionally, PG&E will increase its comprehensive design assistance, offer expedited application reviews and engineering and sales support for business customers who lost their property. These changes will be available as they exist today through 2023.

The initiative will provide awards of $2 million to $5 million to partially offset the development costs of projects that implement carbon-reducing clean energy actions in buildings with an aggregate 12-month average demand of 10 mw or more. Projects could include energy efficiency or distributed energy resources that help commercial and industrial customers to achieve carbon emissions reductions.
Proposals for the initiative must identify a three-year carbon emissions reduction target and a plan for achieving that target. Interested parties must submit proposals by July 10. Funding is provided through the State's 10-year, $5.3 billion Clean Energy Fund.
