Green Channel
Acuity Brands, Ameresco, Johnson Controls, Pareto Energy, and Siemens Building Technologies are the corporate names mentioned in a roundup of what's happening in the nation's schools, colleges & universities on the green & EE fronts.

Also in the Channel — among the topics covered: A campus microgrid; Sierra Club's top green school; MEP work for LEED-certified schools; on-site power.

Eco Power
Waves rush in, waves recede. Just months after the wind folks celebrated the best year on record (2009 — the best year of which anyone ever dreamed — they've had a pretty rotten 2010. Installations reached the lowest 9-month total since 2006.

Also Powerful — a gigantic screw-up in IL; making more power with higher towers; lots of news on offshore wind; and making more energy from what blows.

Energy Efficiency
More than $20 million of your money is being invested (by DoE) in providing tech assistance to commercial buildings to help them reduce energy (so said Sec. Chu). The goal: Accelerating deployment of cost-effective energy-saving measures.

Also Efficient — what DoE's Building Technologies program has been doing; and 10 case studies of how behavior (on wasting/saving energy) was changed.

What should business schools teach about sustainable development? How can those in agriculture make choices more in favor of sustainable agriculture? Can those city landmarks (skyscrapers) actually be "super-green?" Answers await!

Also of Sustenance — new C2C guidance, in the form of an e-book; consumers don't like complicated messages on green; what ISO 26000 means (for hotels).

Green Data Points
With the help of a consulting firm, the Rocky Mountain Institute's "Project Get Ready" has assembled information on what 50 metro areas are doing to . . . get ready! . . . for the dawn of the electric vehicle. Plus: A look at "range anxiety."

Also Pointed — an LA Times writer drives the Chevy Volt and falls in love; a writer from a "freedom-loving" site strongly dislikes the thing. And: Leaf frustration.
