- How clean energy is transforming the world, in 5 charts
By Maria Gallucci - Wednesday Jun 14, 2017
Take it straight from a major fossil fuel supplier: The world's energy mix is changing, and it's shifting toward lower-carbon fuels.
BP, the British oil and gas giant, said global efforts to slash greenhouse gas emissions and boost efficiency are having a tangible effect on global energy markets, with two main narratives playing out: the decline of coal, and the rapid rise of wind and solar power.
This week, BP released its Statistical Review of World Energy on 2016 data. For 66 years, this annual report has served as an energy industry statistical bible of sorts, painting the broad picture of global energy development.

- Fit City: Taking Night-Life Cue, Gyms Lower the Lights

Cycling, boxing and running studios, as well as some full-service gyms, are using sophisticated lighting systems to heighten the exercise experience.
- Can the U.S. run only on wind, water, and solar power? Scientists disagree.
By Maria Gallucci - Wednesday Jun 21, 2017
Scientists widely agree that human activity is the main driver of global warming, and that we have to radically reduce greenhouse gas emissions to avoid its worst impacts. But when it comes to how we can best slash emissions, some scientists are fiercely at odds.
A scholarly brawl broke out this week after energy experts ripped apart a widely cited 2015 study that found the U.S. economy could affordably run on 100-percent renewable energy by midcentury.
Nearly two dozen physicists, engineers, climate scientists, and scholars poked gaping holes in the previous analysis — which asserts that wind, solar, and hydropower alone could power not only the entire U.S. electric grid but also the transportation system, all heating needs, and the entire industrial sector by 2055.

- 11 States Sue Trump Administration For Second Time Over Appliance Energy Efficiency Delays
By Chris Morran - Tuesday Jun 13, 2017
For the second time in two months, a coalition of state attorneys general has sued the Department of Energy, once again claiming the Trump administration has violated federal law by refusing to implement a number of new energy efficiency standards for multiple types of appliances.At issue are new efficiency standards for five categories of appliances and industrial equipment: …

- The U.S. Just Picked Intel, IBM, Nvidia And Others To Help Make Supercomputers 50 Times Faster
By Sean Captain - Thursday Jun 15, 2017
The U.S. aims to take back the title for fastest computer that it lost to China in 2013.
In 2013, the United States ceded the supercomputing crown to China, whose Sunway TaihuLight machine is over five times as powerful as the U.S. government’s fastest system, called Titan. But the Department of Energy is working on a new generation of supercomputers that are 50 times faster than Titan—a performance boost described as “exascale.” Today, DoE awarded $258 million in contracts to six U.S. companies—AMD, Cray (maker of Titan), Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM, Intel, and Nvidia—to build an exascale system by 2021. The companies themselves are expected to add at least $172 million of their own funding to the project, since they will also benefit from the new technologies developed.
- The Make the Future Live festival brought people from London and beyond together to discover the energy solutions of the future
By Shell - Wednesday Jun 21, 2017
Creating a future powered by more sustainable, cleaner energy is at the heart of the Shell #makethefuture initiative. A programme that fosters collaboration between start-ups, entrepreneurs and communities around the world, it looks to put innovative energy ideas into action and help pave the way towards a future powered by cleaner energy.
The #makethefuture initiative from Shell is brought to life in many ways. May 25 to 28 saw the second annual Make the Future Live festival set up shop again at London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The event brings ideas and innovations to life, showcasing how bright young minds can work together to create a sustainable future for all, driving conversations around today’s big energy questions.
