Pearson is one of just 35 global companies to achieve a maximum score of 100 on the Corporate Renewable Energy Index produced by Bloomberg New Energy Finance. Bloomberg approached 1,775 global companies for consideration for the Index, of which 400 had sufficient information to be included in the rankings. Pearson is one of only three U.K.-headquartered companies to achieve the maximum score. The company became climate neutral in 2009.

ISO New England has launched a mobile app to provide information about the region’s power system and wholesale markets. “ISO to Go” offers an overview of New England’s grid, charts showing types of fuels currently being used, real-time data about pricing, and updates on grid conditions. Video for the app was created by Video4Good.

The European Union has reached 100 gigawatts of installed wind-energy capacity, equal to the output of 62 coal-fired power stations. The 27-nation bloc took two decades to reach 10 gigagwatts, but just 13 more years to add 90 gigawatts. The EU is expanding clean energy projects to replace aging coal plants and reduce reliance on fossil-fuel imports.
