A 1.2 megawatt (MW) solar energy project across 40 New York City Housing Authority rooftops was announced as the national winner of a U.S. Department of Energy program to make solar power affordable to renters in public housing.
The project was developed by Solar One in collaboration with WE ACT for Environmental Justice, the Brooklyn Movement Center, and Con Edison. It was one of 10 finalists in the DOE’s Sunny Awards for Equitable Community Solar, presented yesterday at the National Community Solar Partnership (NCSP) Annual Summit in San Diego.
This year’s summit theme, “Community Solar’s Time to Shine,” reflects how recent renewable energy innovations and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) passage have unlocked new potential for community solar in the U.S.
Every year, thousands of peer-reviewed journal articles about climate and energy are published, and of those thousands, there are those which capture the attention of journalists and bloggers, and get shared across the internet. In 2022, despite heavy competition from war, death and economics, climate change and energy still commanded quite a bit of attention.
Here are the top ten most referenced and shared climate studies of 2022, as determined by Altmetric, an organization that scores academic papers according to their online mentions.
The United Nations held its annual Climate Conference in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt over the past few weeks, and while it wasn’t easy, in the end 200 countries signed on to a breakthrough agreement that addressed one of the most persistent sticking points: the disparity between the nations responsible for most of the pollution that is driving climate change, and those that have contributed the least emissions but are suffering some of the most extreme effects.
The new 12-page agreement established a compensation fund to address losses and damages for countries with the lowest carbon footprints, including smaller island nations like Vanuatu and less industrialized nations in Africa.
