Emissions trading, or cap and trade, is a permit-based approach to controlling pollution that offers companies economic incentives for reducing emissions. The permitting process limits the amount of total allowable emissions while enabling companies to purchase additional permits from those producing fewer emissions.

Wastewater treatment plants are impacted by the same infrastructure issues as highways, bridges, and municipal water systems. As population increases and permitting requirements are strengthened, there is little room to upgrade and expand. Costs are also prohibitive. New technologies like membrane bioreactors (MBR), however, can fit in the footprint of

Powering Ports

Ports are high-traffic, energy-intensive transportation hubs and critical national entry points. In an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and augment energy resiliency, the Port of San Diego is planning to install a solar-powered microgrid—a project that could serve as a landmark for other harbors.

The Port of San Diego is

CHP and Microgrids—A Profitable Pair

CHP and Microgrids—A Profitable Pair

Often, two technologies emerge more or less simultaneously, and then reinforce each other as mutually compatible technologies. In doing so, they can create a kind of synergy together and make one another more efficient, more cost-effective, more profitable, and more useful—like a pair of horses working together to pull a
