    (July 6, 2021) - As we continue to build out our data and analytics offerings, we are pleased to launch our latest product on Biodiesel.  Biofuel is an expanding market within the energy sector in Europe, as many countries are now looking for ways to reduce their carbon emissions within the transport sector.

    Biofuel is seen as a ‘green’ alternative to heavy fuel oils, such as gasoil (a market which we already cover). This report outlines some of the main supply and demand factors within the market and is a further expansion of our Environmental Markets Research.

    (June 24, 2021) - PSEG today accelerates its net-zero ambitions by launching a three-pronged 2030 climate vision that extends across its business. The PSEG climate vision marks one of the first and most aggressive net-zero 2030 visions set by a large utility and power generator and comprises three pillars: 

    1. Net-zero emissions for PSEG operations, including PSE&G’s utility operations (scopes 1 and 2);
    2. 100% greenhouse gas- (GHG), carbon-free power generation; and 
    3. Significant contributions to regional economy-wide decarbonization.

    (June 23, 2021) - The shift toward “net zero” is on. Reaching aspirational goals to stave off the worst of global warming requires a multifaceted approach that includes one critical pathway that is sometimes mentioned but often underestimated- carbon offsets.

    The good news is the design and use of offsets has been proven over the past nearly 20 years, providing a host of benefits that complement, not substitute for a company’s efforts to cut emissions internally. Actions such as stopping deforestation and restoring agricultural soils are not optional but a requirement to stabilize the climate.

    (June 23, 2021) - Earlier this month, Enbridge Inc.’s Texas Eastern Transmission unit (TETCO) announced that its natural gas pipeline from Pennsylvania to Mississippi could be operating at reduced pressure until late third quarter, reducing flow to nearly 1 bcf per day, down from 1.9 bcf per day in May.

    This news came along with increasing temperatures for the 5-day forecast with increased cooling demand expected, especially in the West and Texas. Traders have been focused on the logistical concerns to meet increasing demand and prices have reached their highest level in more than 7 months.

    (June 17, 2021) - As part of a long-term goal to reduce energy expenses, the Monroe County Water Authority (MCWA) today announced plans to install a five megawatt (MW) solar energy array on its existing property at the corner of Penfield Rd. and Watson Hulbert Rd. in the Town of Penfield.

    Construction started this week and is expected to be completed by the end of the year. The array will benefit MCWA customers by using clean, sustainable energy to offset its power bills and also help New York State achieve its clean energy targets including generating 70 percent of its electricity through renewable resources by 2030.

    (June 15, 2021) - Cities and utilities across the country are progressively adopting or increasing stormwater fees as a means to generate funding for capital projects related to mitigating surface runoff, treating runoff, or separating stormwater drains from the sanitary sewer system.

    Oftentimes, stormwater fees are assessed based on the area (square feet) of impervious surface and come in a variety of names such as rain tax, drainage fee, stormwater fee, or impervious tax.

    Regardless of the label, impervious areas create runoff, deplete groundwater recharge, spread pollutants, and have other negative effects on the environment which is why cities require funding to mitigate the impact.
