Gas, renewables flatten global CO2 emissions

Gas, renewables flatten global CO2 emissions Gas and renewable energy resources have been turning the planet into a better place to live in, with them dominantly flattening overall carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions globally for the third straight year despite brisk economic growths in some countries which manifestly require larger scale energy consumption. That has been … Continue reading Gas, renewables flatten global CO2 emissions

US EIA: Natural Gas CO2 Emissions are Exceeding Coal Emissions

US EIA: Natural Gas CO2 Emissions are Exceeding Coal Emissions For the first time since 1972, energy-associated carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from coal are dropping below natural gas CO2 emissions. The US Energy Information Agency’s latest Short-Term Energy Outlook reports that energy-related CO2 emissions from natural gas are expected to be 10 percent higher than … Continue reading US EIA: Natural Gas CO2 Emissions are Exceeding Coal Emissions

EIA: Energy-related CO2 emissions from natural gas will surpass coal in 2016

EIA: Energy-related CO2 emissions from natural gas will surpass coal in 2016 Natural gas is less carbon-intensive than coal, but as environmental advocates have been pointing out for years, the fuel still has significant emissions related to its use. And now, for the first time in about 45 years, those emissions from gas are set … Continue reading EIA: Energy-related CO2 emissions from natural gas will surpass coal in 2016

Durham’s NET Power breaks ground on zero-emissions plant

Durham’s NET Power breaks ground on zero-emissions plant NET Power broke ground last month on an experimental power plant near Houston, Texas, and expects to start generating electricity there in March 2017. Some are predicting that if NET Power’s experiment works and produces power without polluting, scores of these futuristic energy projects would sprout in … Continue reading Durham’s NET Power breaks ground on zero-emissions plant
