McMaster to receive $2 million for electric boilers to reduce natural gas usage

"...In March, university spokesperson Michelle Donovan told Global News the institution is committed to addressing climate change and shares the same objectives as the demonstartors, but said the generators were needed as “a stop-gap” along the way to reach emission targets. The $9-million Decarbonization Incentive will also give $2 million to York University for a new energy management information system to help increase energy efficiency on its campus. Western will get the biggest chunk, nearly $5 million to replace an older natural gas-powered boiler with high-voltage electric steam boilers..."

Western University receives $4.75M from Ottawa's carbon pricing system

"...“In all, these federal investments will enable McMaster, Western and York universities to cut over 35,000 tons of carbon pollution in 2030 through these projects,” said Filomena Tassi, Minister responsible for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario. “This significant reduction in carbon pollution aligns with Canada's commitment to the Paris Agreement in its ambitious target to reach net zero emissions by 2050. ”..."

The path to clean electricity must include energy efficiency

"...advagg_mod_2_check();Achieving lower bills and net-zero emissionsThe budget states that each province and territory will need to show how federal funding will be used to “lower bills” and “achieve a net-zero electricity sector by 2035. ” Increasing energy efficiency is a way to meet both of these objectives because cost-effective energy savings reduce total energy system costs and efficiency programs directly lower bills for those who participate. The federal government can encourage electricity systems across the country to make a tangible commitment to achieving net-zero emissions by implementing energy efficiency resource standards, which require that a minimum percentage of energy needs come from savings attributable to programs..."

Microgrids should be the future of electricity. Let's fund them.

"...It is fertile ground for the new technologies of distributed generation, energy management and energy storage. Relatively short product-development cycles, the commodification of services, the “internet-of-energy,” sophisticated data analytics and mass production of distributed energy resources all challenge status quo business models and regulatory frameworks. Activities and technologies “beyond the meter” and out of reach of the traditional utility modus operandi are proliferating..."

Hydrogen hypercar rocks 1,000 horsepower, weighs less than 1,000 kg

"...UK startup Viritech has launched its gorgeous Pininfarina-penned Apricale hypercar at Goodwood, and dropped some impressive specifications to go with it. This hydrogen-powered monster will break both the 1,000-horsepower and 1-hp-per-kg barriers. A weight figure under 1,000 kg (2,205 lb) makes the Apricale one of the lightest cars in the vaunted thousand-pony club, and it's an incredibly impressive demonstration of the company's core technology: lightweight "Graph-Pro" hydrogen storage tanks that are built into the structure of the carbon fiber chassis, as opposed to heavy bolt-on tanks that weigh 20 times more than the hydrogen they carry..."
