Modernizing the compressor room can be a profitable investment, since compressors are responsible for a big share of the energy bill in most industries. Here are three beer companies that have done it.
Compressed air is one of industry’s most important resources. It is also one of the largest consumers of energy, so any savings made in compressed air systems can have a significant impact on costs and on the environment.
Sempra Energy, PG&E, Edison International, Xcel Energy Rank High for Renewable Energy while FPL, American Electric Power, ConEdison and PPL Corp Rank Low
A new analysis released today by Ceres shows that many of the nation’s largest electric utilities and their local subsidiaries are moving toward lower carbon fuel sources and that ambitious state policies and strong corporate demand for renewable energy are key drivers of this trend.
The Ray Will Become a Proving Ground for Safer, Smarter Highway Mobility
The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) State Transportation Board yesterday passed a resolution endorsing a project of The Ray C. Anderson Foundation, The Ray, to re-imagine our highway system into one that is safer and more sustainable.
The Ray, officially known as the Ray C. Anderson Memorial Highway, is an 18-mile corridor on Interstate 85 that connects exits 1 and 18 – from West Point, Ga., to LaGrange Ga.

AT&T has been in the Internet of Things (IoT) business for more than 8 years. We’re already connecting automobiles, homes and “things.” Now, we’re putting it all together in the places where 60-80% of global greenhouse gases will be generated, and where 66% of world’s population will live by 2050: Cities.
Enter the Smart City. A Smart City optimizes how we use valuable resources, like energy and water, to help improve quality of life, positively impact our planet and open new economic opportunities.
Every two years or so for the past 50 years, our technology has gotten smarter, smaller and more powerful. This, in a nutshell, is Moore's Law. But this improvement isn't inevitable. Our devices have gotten too small to get any smaller. To address this problem, researchers at Hewlett Packard Enterprise are re-envisioning Moore’s Law to create a solution for our society on a global scale. Insert: The Machine.
Right now, on this day, at this point in time, connections are being made like never before. From people to cities to farms to everything in between, technology weaves through our connected world to bring us closer together, make us smarter… and help us solve some of the earth’s biggest environmental challenges.
This Earth Day we’re taking a moment to think about how all of this technology can create a better tomorrow for our planet.
A new whitepaper, Accountability for Climate Action: How Corporations Are Tackling Climate Change, shows that businesses are a powerful force in addressing climate change, with a large majority making commitments to increase energy efficiency, reduce CO2 emissions or increase the use of renewables. Findings show more than 50 percent of large companies offer products differentiated by low carbon footprint or impact on emissions reductions.
Many companies offer products that can be differentiated by carbon footprint or impact on emissions reduction. Industries leading the way include utilities, industrial goods manufacturers and those supplying basic materials.
