Lots of the best minds in energy are in hyperdrive these days thinking about what a low-carbon grid looks like and how to get there. In a timely contribution to the field, E3 is out today with a major study of that question, as seen through the lens of PJM, one of the largest electricity markets in North America.
UPS is listed as one of GreenBiz's top 25 most sustainable fleets.
For several years UPS has been operating its "rolling laboratory" approach to piloting and deploying low-carbon and electric vehicles. Of its fleet of 125,000 package vans, trucks, motorcycles and tractors, UPS has 11,000 alternative-fuels vehicles, and it's done a substantial project in London with smart grid tech and EVs.

Since the mid-twentieth century, sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) has been widely used as a replacement for oil as an insulator in electrical equipment, with one of its largest uses today being in electrical switchgear. SF6)has proven to be reliable and highly effective in applications where arcing can be expected and its use has enabled smaller, cleaner designs and greater equipment durability over time.
By almost all accounts, SF6 has been a strong performer in electrical equipment.
