L.A. Uses Big Data to Map Energy Block by Block

L.A. Uses Big Data to Map Energy Block by Block | Sustainable Energy | Scoop.it

Most buildings waste energy but how inefficient one building is compared to others is difficult to know. At a city level, choosing which buildings are ripe for efficiency upgrades is even harder.

The University of California at Los Angeles today published a map that brings some clarity to how the city uses electricity, block by block.

Global Climate at Risk as Nearly 1,200 New Coal Plants Proposed

Global Climate at Risk as Nearly 1,200 New Coal Plants Proposed | Sustainable Energy | Scoop.it

The World Resources Institute (WRI) released a report, Global Coal Risk Assessment, that analyzes information about proposed new coal-fired plants and other market trends in order to assess potential future risks to the global climate.

The report finds that there are 1,199 new coal power plants in the works, totaling more than 1.4 million megawatts of capacity worldwide. That’s four times the capacity of all the coal-fired power plants in the U.S. Seventy-six percent of the coal plants are proposed for India and China, with the U.S. seventh in the world for coal power plants in development.
According to the WRI, if all of these projects are built, it would add new coal power capacity that is almost four times the current capacity of all coal-fired plants in the U.S.
