Minnesota takes the lead with reforms advocates say will bolster the case for combined heat and power plants.
One of the most progressive measures in a bill to modernize Virginia’s grid relies on some of the oldest electrical technology around – harkening back to Thomas Edison’s very first power plant.
Acknowledging that a new fossil-fuel powered plant may have little environmental upside, Duke University officials say they are not committed to the $55 million project they announced in May, even if state regulators give it the green light.
Although Illinois-based Commonwealth Edison began offering incentives for combined heat and power systems two years ago, almost none of its customers have pursued it — an outcome that one proponent of the highly efficient technology attributes to lackluster marketing.
A new collaboration of clean energy groups says Michigan has vast potential to generate electricity by taking advantage of wasted energy at industrial and other facilities.
