Renewable energy is increasingly affordable, good for the environment and here to stay. The problem is that the nation's electrical grid isn't ready for it. The grid was not built for the kind of fluctuating supply that comes from distributed energy generation. In addition to the increased volatility associated with distributed energy resources, utilities are confronted with increased demands on the grid from electrification and digitization of the economy. Customer expectations for consumer-grade digital experiences and increased emphasis on safety and reliability are only increasing.
Universities around the world are realizing the importance of sustainable practices and are working towards shrinking their carbon footprint by focusing on renewable energy resources, clean technology, and carbon offsets. This guide will provide complimentary information on carbon credits along with case studies where universities have incorporated them into their sustainability strategy. Also included: tips for identifying high-quality credits and avoiding low-quality credits that do not reduce carbon emissions. Read this guide to learn more about what carbon credits are and how to navigate the process of measuring, assessing, and obtaining carbon credits.

Energy companies are being challenged on multiple fronts. Core expectations require the delivery of safe, reliable, affordable and sustainable energy. Business models are being challenged by alternatives such as renewables and consumers demanding more sophisticated interactions through social and mobile.
Energy companies need to:
Disruptively innovate business processes through analytics driven operational excellence to increase agility and responsiveness, reduce operational costs and improve asset reliability
Assume the role of energy integrator to optimally balance supply and demand points
Deliver a 360-degree customer-of-one experience to increase customer satisfaction and loyalty, reduce costs, and improve management of energy demand
The energy landscape has become increasingly complex. Globally, we’re relying less on centralized, steady power sources – such as gas-fired and coal-fired power stations – and more on mixed, locally-distributed renewable energy supplies including solar, wind, tidal and battery. While this is positive for the environment and carbon emissions, it makes balancing power grids a much more complex task. Power quality and reliability becomes more variable in output, while demand for power continues to increase steadily. But when it comes to energy resilience, many organizations simply don’t know where to start. What solutions are available? Which are the best ones for their specific situation and physical premises? What will be their return on investment? Is it simply the cost of doing business, or is there actually a business case? The guide will give you the tools and data to build your understanding and quantify the benefit for your organization.
It's demanding times for businesses. Facing risks as diverse as extreme weather and cyber-attacks, ?rms are focusing more intently on business continuity plans. At the same time, the digital revolution is changing lifestyles, disrupting business models and acting as a catalyst for change. Energy itself is undergoing a transformation, as generation moves towards renewables and decentralization, while technological advances present new opportunities. Energy now has the potential to deliver competitive advantage, to enhance sustainability and resilience, and to power innovative business models. But equally, the range of new options available is making the management of energy more complex. Read this thought leadership paper to find out how energy can drive your business strategy.
Many in the United States’ power generation
industry no doubt long for the relative market
tranquility of the late 20th century. The generation
plants built and operated then were carbon-fueled
or nuclear-powered, with a few hydro-electric
plants sprinkled in. The economics were largely
stable and predictable, often thanks to regulation
that shielded utilities from market fluctuations.
But even in those simpler times, when the
market was far less volatile, there was still
much due diligence required when investors
and developers were considering multi-milliondollar commitments in new generation projects.
Today’s market is more volatile, due in large part
to the disruptive effect of low-cost natural gas
and the subsequent, rapid growth of affordable
As more uneconomical and inefficient generation
plants go offline, there is, for the most part,
sufficient carbon-free or carbon-reduced
generation to meet the growing demand for
electric energy. There are pockets of growth
How we fuel our vehicles, heat our homes, and power our industries is undergoing fundamental change. Well-deployed but inefficient technologies, such as internal combustion engine cars and oil/gas boilers are being replaced with electrified and higher-efficiency alternatives. And renewables such as sunlight, wind, thermal, and others, supported by next generation battery storage, are fueling an evergreater share of energy demand.

Majority of companies surveyed will bolster investment in sustainable solutions.
Our recent survey of more than 400 technology decision makers across 13 industries indicates that early adoption of disruptive technology, including in the areas of Energy Storage and Renewable Energy, is seen as less risky than waiting to invest.
Cascade Grain Products, a new $113.4 million gallon ethanol plant in Clatskanie, Oregon, was in need of an IT infrastructure that matched its green business mission. The IT management team chose to equip the new plant with an expandable and energy-efficient server and storage infrastructure consisting of an all-in-one blade server and storage solution. Read this case study to learn how Cascade Grain Products achieved a planet- and bottom line-friendly six-figure cost avoidance on power, cooling and construction costs and $50,000 annual saving in onsite administration costs.
