Geothermal energy currently provides less than half of a percent of the nation’s power, but experts believe that it could produce as much as 5 percent of the electricity supply using existing technology.
Pilot projects using bidirectional charging equipment are turning electric vehicles into battery storage units, feeding energy back onto the grid when needed. Fleet vehicles are seen as prime opportunity for the tech.
Residents have received warnings in recent days to conserve energy usage to prevent outages as a record-setting heat wave engulfs the state. EV charging only accounts for about 0.4 percent of the overall energy load.
Eight all-electric school buses in the Cajon Valley Union School District will use advanced “vehicle-to-grid” technology to discharge emissions-free energy back to the grid after use.
Though a large share of the country’s clean electricity comes from nuclear power plants, states have made plans to retire them. But as they set steeper emission targets, many are reconsidering the role of nuclear energy.
The site called the Capitolist, positioned as an independent source of news and which aimed its content directly at statehouse decision makers, was bankrolled and controlled by executives of Florida Power and Light.
The enormous energy demands of Bitcoin mining are prompting some U.S. municipalities to impose moratoriums or outright bans on cryptocurrency facilities. Bitcoin mining activity, critics warn, is leading to electricity price hikes and a revival of dirtier sources of power.
