The Evolution of Energy Solutions: The Current Energy Outlook

Posted by Dalkia Aegis on May 17

The global energy sector is constantly changing as hydro, nuclear, wind and solar options continue to grow in popularity and fossil fuels are slowly phased out. As we look to the future, more and more governing bodies are passing rules and standards surrounding emissions, and we can expect the current trends to continue. In this blog, we’re examining two recent reports about the current energy outlook from the International Energy Agency. We’ll also explain how our Combined Heat & Power (CHP) and on-site energy solutions can help you adapt to these trends while reducing your carbon footprint and saving you money.

Save Money and the Environment: Exploring the Benefits of Renewable Energy

Posted by Dalkia Aegis on Mar 24

For decades, coal, a fossil fuel that contributes heavily to climate change, was the dominant source of energy for electricity generation in the United States across all sectors. Within the past decade, this fuel has been knocked out of its top position as the use of renewable energy sources and natural gas has risen.

At Dalkia Aegis, we’re known for our energy-efficient, on-site energy generation solutions, such as our combined heat and power (CHP) systems, which run on natural gas. But we also work to connect our customers with solutions that generate energy from renewable resources, such as solar.

In this blog, we’re going to dive into the benefits of renewable energy and explain how the solar and storage capabilities of our partner, Dalkia Energy Solutions, can help your facility reduce its carbon footprint.

A Solar Future: Exploring the Goals of SunShot 2030

Posted by Dalkia Aegis on Mar 10

By its very nature, sunlight is one of the most abundant sources of renewable energy available. In fact, according to the United States Department of Energy (DOE), about 173,000 terawatts of solar energy constantly hit the Earth—enough to supply the planet’s entire total energy use more than 10,000 times over. In recent years, many countries have embraced the power of the sun for energy and moved away from the fossil fuels that are contributing to climate change. Through the SunShot 2030 initiative, the U.S. has set important benchmarks for solar energy accessibility in the country. In this blog, we are going to take a deeper look at the goals of SunShot 2030, how the initiative is impacting the growth of the solar energy industry and how businesses can take advantage today.

Don’t Switch to Coal: How to Use Natural Gas More Efficiently

Posted by Dalkia Aegis on Feb 24

It’s no secret that natural gas prices are sky high—anyone who heats their facility with this resource is aware that the cost has increased by more than 75% over the last calendar year. Not only is this detrimental for the economy in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, but it’s also damaging to the goal of a green energy future. These surging gas prices have led to an increase in the use of coal, one of the highest polluting energy sources on the planet. But switching to coal isn’t the only way to save on your facility’s energy bills—you can use natural gas more efficiently, and we can help.

CHP and Its Role in the Green Energy of Tomorrow

Posted by Dalkia Aegis on Feb 11

Let’s face it—the Earth is warming, the climate is changing, and much of the blame can be put on human activity. Industrialization in the 1800s kickstarted an upward trend of carbon emissions into the atmosphere that has yet to see a significant decline. But just as humans started down this destructive path, people and businesses can also choose to embrace more sustainable energy solutions for the future. In this blog, we will uncover what the green energy of tomorrow looks like and how energy-efficient combined heat and power (CHP) systems will continue to play an important role in reducing carbon emissions.

A Perception of Climate Change Study From EDF Group

Posted by Dalkia Aegis on Jan 26

Climate change is an urgent concern that can affect human life in various ways including rising sea levels, hotter temperatures and destructive, severe weather. While the number of extreme climate events continues to rise, skepticism over the issue is also growing. Our parent company, EDF Group, recently published a climate change study based upon opinion responses from people in 30 different countries across five continents. In this blog, we’re reviewing this surprising new data and explaining how our Combined Heat and Power (CHP) and microgrid solutions can help lower your carbon footprint while saving you money.

Cleaning Up the Dirty Grid with CHP

Posted by Dalkia Aegis on Jan 10

If you’re conscious of energy efficiency and conservation measures, you likely know that certain sources are much “cleaner” than others. For example, burning oil does a lot more harm to the environment than harnessing wind or nuclear energy. You may also assume that the electricity you get from the traditional grid is always generated the same way, which couldn’t be further from the truth. In this blog, we’ll explain the process of “peaking” and the ways you can use combined heat and power (CHP) to reduce your reliance on the dirty grid while you improve your bottom line.

Countering Power Plant Energy Loss with CHP

Posted by Dalkia Aegis on Dec 20

Flipping on a light switch takes less than a second—but have you ever thought about what it took for that energy to make its way to you? Electricity is something many of us take for granted, but when that energy is created by a traditional central power plant and sent over a network, some of that power is lost before it can reach its destination. In this blog, we will uncover the facts behind the energy loss that occurs when power plants transmit and distribute electricity, and why an onsite combined heat and power (CHP) system is more energy efficient.

Combat Increased Energy Prices with CHP

Posted by Dalkia Aegis on Dec 2

Over the past few months, the price of energy sources such as natural gas, coal and oil has skyrocketed, taking electricity costs along for the ride. Your facility may already be feeling the effects—but as the cold winter approaches, the added costs could become even worse. Luckily, implementing a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system can help you reduce some of the impact of increased energy prices through improved operational efficiency.

Don’t Lose Sight of New York City’s Local Law 97

Posted by Dalkia Aegis on Nov 17

Improve Your NY Facility by 2024 or Face Fines: We Can Help

A lot has happened in the two years since Local Law 97 (LL97) was enacted in the city of New York, so it stands to reason that some may have lost sight of the looming law set to take place in 2024 that will limit emissions from the city’s largest buildings in an effort to reach carbon neutrality by 2050. Not to fear. If you’re a building owner that has not yet made facility improvements, you still have time to act—and we can help. In addition to ensuring you gain compliance with LL97, we can also lower your energy costs with our array of on-site energy solutions. Let’s dive into New York City’s Local Law 97 and the ways we can help you go (and save) green.
