U.S. Energy Efficiency Plans Underway for 2018

U.S. Energy Efficiency Plans Underway for 2018

| Maxwell Technologies

States across the U.S. are gearing up their energy efficiency plans for 2018 and beyond. Here are a few recent movements.

New York States plan to catch sea wind

New York State’s plan to catch sea wind

By 2030, New York will power up to 1.2 million homes with 2,400 megawatts of offshore wind energy. Governor Andrew M. Cuomo released the New York State Offshore Wind Master Plan which details the large-scale adoption of offshore wind power to combat climate change, improve public health, environmental quality, and to create clean energy job opportunities for New Yorkers.
New Jersey to harness offshore wind

New Jersey to harness offshore wind, too

New York’s neighbor isn’t going to be left behind in wind energy.­ New Jersey has set in motion its goal to produce 3,500 megawatts of offshore wind energy by 2030 under the Offshore Wind Economic Development Act.

Pumped hydro getting spotlight in California

Over on the left coast of the United States, California is revving up a new plan for pumped hydro in San Diego to help support wind and solar power on the grid. The project calls for a 500 megawatt energy storage facility that will provide enough stored energy to support about 325,000 homes per year. To learn how pumped hydro works, click here.
Arizona balancing renewables, nuclear and energy storage

Arizona balancing renewables, nuclear and energy storage

Arizona’s Energy Modernization Plan includes a 2050 target for utilities: by that future date, 80% of the state’s electricity must come from renewables and nuclear; by 2030 utilities must deploy 3 gigawatts of energy storage. Increasing peak demand in Arizona is driving the adoption of energy storage methods to capture low-priced energy during the day and deliver that energy back into the grid when demand is highest.
