Sterling Planet has announced that in the coming year it will supply Staples with renewable energy that makes up 50 percent of Staples’ total U.S. electricity use, more than double that company’s previous annual level. The electricity will be used across Staples’ facilities, including retail stores, delivery distribution centers, customer service call centers, and sales offices. Staples is ranked 4th by the EPA among all retailers, 6th among Fortune 500 companies, and 8th in the U.S. for its green power purchasing. Sterling Planet sources renewable energy from wind energy projects nationwide.

HP has launched the HP Digital Learning Suite, new technological tools for teachers and students to improve educational achievement. The technology encourages interactive learning and student collaboration. The new solutions were showcased at the Texas Computer Education Association meeting in Austin last week. Texas is the country’s largest market for educational products and services.
