A consortium including Exxon Mobil, Conoco Phillips, and BP plans to export natural gas from Alaska’s North Slope in a project that is estimated to cost $65 billion. The effort is expected to impact U.S. construction and manufacturing companies that would supply steel and other materials for an 800-mile pipeline and the plant that would convert the gas into liquid for export on tankers.

AT&T is planning to install 9.6 megawatts of fuel cell power from Bloom Energy, a clean energy provider. Bloom Boxes contained stacked fuel cells that convert air and natural gas into electricity through a clean electrochemical process. With the latest addition, AT& T will have 17.1 megawatts of Bloom Energy Servers that power 28 sites in California and Connecticut.

Boulder, Colorado’s hydroelectric plant has received a $5 million upgrade. Originally built in 1910, the Boulder Canyon facility installed a new turbine and generator. The project was funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and city water utility funds.
