Proposed pipeline project slated for Elmira

"...A low-carbon renewable energy pipeline could soon be coming to Elmira. The proposed plan would connect the natural gas system to existing infrastructure. This project could generate approximately 11 million cubic meters of renewable natural gas annually, reducing 22,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions, which is equivalent to taking approximately 5,000 passenger cars off the road each year, said Murray Costello, the director of southeast region operations for Enbridge Gas..."

When renewable energy projects clash with environmental values

"...One example is the Aira solar project near the town of Bow Island in southern Alberta. The project would provide 450 megawatts of carbon-free electricity to the provincial grid, but opponents fear its location would damage native grasslands and block herds of antelope as they migrate north from the U. S..."

California is forging ahead with food waste recycling. But is it too much, too fast?

"...Over time, food scraps and other organic materials like yard waste emit methane, a gas more potent and damaging in the short-term than carbon emissions from fossil fuels. California's goal is to keep that waste from piling up in landfills, instead turning it into compost or biogas..."

Enbridge, Divert break ground on renewable fuel facility in Washington Globalnews.ca

"...Enbridge, which bought a 10 per cent stake in Divert earlier this year for US$80 million, is one of a number of traditional fossil fuel companies that have been investing in RNG as concerns about climate change intensify. According to the World Biogas Association, organic waste from food production, food waste, farming, landfill and wastewater treatment are responsible for about 25 per cent of human-caused global emissions of methane, a harmful greenhouse gas..."

Dont let wastewater opportunities flow down the drain

"...In its new report, Wastewater: Turning problem to solution, UNEP warned that only 11 per cent of treated wastewater is reused while around half of the worlds untreated wastewater still enters rivers, lakes and seas. Furthermore, CO2 emissions from wastewater are substantial, hovering slightly below those from the global aviation industry. With the right policies in place, wastewater could provide alternative energy to half a billion people, supply over 10 times the water obtained through desalination processes and reduce the demand for synthetic fertilizers..."

Ontarios clean power plan thats not really a plan

"...After the Bruce Power announcement, the Saugeen Ojibway Nation, composed of the Saugeen First Nation and the Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation, said they will not support any new projects on their territory until there is a solution to storing Canada’s nuclear waste. The nuclear plant, which would be the province’s largest nuclear power project in more than 30 years, needs environmental approval from the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada, meaning even if it is approved, it won’t be opening any time soon. The Ontario government said large-scale nuclear power projects typically have a lead time "of a decade or more," which Brooks stresses is too far in the future to address the current climate crisis and the immediate need to reduce emissions..."

Ontario to seek new wind, solar power to help ease coming electricity supply crunch

"...The last round of procurements Smith announced for electricity generation involved both natural gas and battery storage projects. The new planned procurement of green power, including wind, solar, hydroelectric and biogas, will pair well with recent energy storage procurements, Smith said, so that power generated by solar panels, for example, can be stored and injected into the system when needed..."
