100% Renewable Energy Goal Is What Cities Need

0

Now that the other two big California cities, San Diego and San Francisco, seem poised to implement official 100% renewable energy goals, the City of Los Angeles will have even encouragement to think about taking the leap. The fact that many major non-profits have also recently jumped on board to call for 100% renewable energy, and that a rapidly growing number of major businesses, cities, and even states like Hawaii are setting 100% renewable electricity targets, will add to the push. Remember that just a short time ago, the idea of 100% renewable energy was way outside any mainstream thinking…

One of the key factors is that there are no emissions in the cities and its region. You have to remember that given the world is round, whatever happens in one city is going through the atmosphere or the water to other parts of the world.

Some of the key observations of the report are: Los Angels ranks third out of four U.S. major cities for public transport use. Only 20% use public transport while 74% rely on private transport. Residents of L.A. consume less electricity per person than in the other U.S. cities and wealthier global cities. Electricity in L.A. is some of the greenest in the world. Air quality in L.A. is the worst amongst U.S. cities, but better than in international megacities.

eHighway Promises Emission Reduced Cargo Movement

0

The goal of this eHighway project is to demonstrate the technology, that it works, and that there are tangible benefits, such as savings on fuel and other operating costs as well as reducing green-house gas emissions and improving the air quality. We feel strongly that air quality improvement, would be a major benefit to those who live and work around the port. In the U.S. and in California, specifically, there is a real focus on improving air quality, especially around areas of heavy emissions. eHighway speaks directly to that issue.

Electric Vehicles Aren’t The Sole Solution

0

I think the electric vehicles make sense but there is no reason why they can’t coexist. And indeed if you lo at the California Air Resources Board planned for California and carbon reduction, they identify those electric vehicles hybrid electric vehicles and fuel cell as necessary steps to meet our goals. One alone will not be sufficient. You’ve got to pursue multiple paths. Fuel cells right now basically have a range of typically 100 to 150 miles, except the Tesla, and while that is satisfactory for most people commuting and local driving, some people feel like they want to be…
