US Clean Energy and Efficiency Keep Growing

On the clean energy front, a new interactive tracks how fast wind farms are spreading across the US, and Texas sets a new wind power high. Solar companies continue to increase solar cell efficiency and investment.

Other companies are driving the clean transformation in the US power sector, and devising new ways of storing clean renewable energy. As major online media – Apple, Google, And Facebook – go green, focus shifts to Amazon and Twitter, still using dirty energy, says a new report.

Energy efficiency is evolving on many fronts, with policies requiring grid-smart thermostats, price incentives to cut energy loads, and pairing IT with energy efficiency technology.
