Energy Points, a provider of energy analytics for resource management, and SustainEdge, a consultancy, have launched the Higher Edge Energy Points Solution, a comprehensive solution to increase sustainability and reduce energy consumption at academic campuses. Using Energy Points Analytics, SustainEdge will provide a complete analysis of all resource streams managed in a campus setting, including electricity, water, waste, travel and more. The solution allows a direct comparison of resource usage, regardless of  the domain or metric.

Norway will double the carbon tax on its North Sea oil industry to create a $1.6 billion fund to combat the impacts of climate change. The Oslo government will target the fund’s spending on renewable energy and conversion to low-carbon energy sources, and food security and projects to address deforestation in developing countries.

A 30 year-old hydroelectric plant in Whitefish, Montana has been retrofitted and is back online. The facility will enable the city to generate and deliver 6.6 million kilowatt-hours of energy to the power grid. Funds for the rebuilding came from Flathead Electric, the cooperative utility which is buying the energy, and from an American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grant through the Montana Department of Environmental Quality.
