Funding These funds, […]
While energy efficiency is extremely important, today’s energy landscape requires us to look at the bigger picture.
40 years ago, in response to energy crises, energy efficiency (EE) measures were introduced to mitigate petroleum production shortages and associated skyrocketing fuel costs. When the crises ended, the perceived value of EE declined. Fast-forward to the 21st century where climate change and resource depletion can no longer be ignored. Consequently, the magnitude and scale […]
California is at a turning point. We are no longer in position to turn a blind eye and prolong finding solutions to our water, energy, and infrastructure problems. And California is not the only state facing these major issues. Take a look at Texas, Oregon, Florida, Pennsylvania, and others. Once every four years the American […]
According to behavioral finances, we often make decisions based on approximate rules of thumb and not strict logic, we rely on emotional filters to understand and respond to events, and that creates market inefficiencies. That’s why monetizing the risks and risk management tools can be very effective. Regardless of the solution, the first reaction is […]
Sustainability has such a broad meaning that anyone can have their own definition and they all will be true. Sustainability, as related to the environment and energy became a term commonly used and “trendy”, and thus it creates a risk of “greenwashing”. The energy strategy or policy typically defines high-level goals and requirements, and include […]
Climate change and energy efficiency has emerged as one of the most important energy and economic policy issues of the 21st century. Climate changes are happening affecting people and economies, and further associated impacts which vary in different parts of the globe, we can expect to see throughout this century, as also confirmed in the […]
Climate change and energy efficiency has emerged as one of the most important energy and economic policy issues of the 21st century. Energy efficiency has been commonly accepted as an attractive approach to reducing GHG emissions and as response to the resources depletion. Although energy efficiency had been recognized and energy efficiency measures applied in […]
