Early in the twentieth century, for-profit companies such as Duke Power and South Carolina Electric and Gas brought electricity to populous cities and towns across South Carolina, while rural areas remained in the dark. It was not until the advent of publicly owned electric cooperatives in the 1930s that the South Carolina countryside was gradually introduced to the conveniences of life with electricity. Today, electric cooperatives serve more than a quarter of South Carolina's citizens and more than seventy percent of the state's land area.In his book, Empowering Communities: How Electric Cooperatives Transformed Rural South Carolina (USC Press, 2022), Dr. Lacy K. Ford and co-author Jared Bailey tell the story of the rise of "public" power – electricity serviced by member-owned cooperatives and sanctioned by federal and state legislation. It is a complicated saga, encompassing politics, law, finance, and rural economic development, of how the cooperatives helped bring fundamental and transformational change to the lives of rural people in South Carolina, from light to broadband.Ford talks with Dr. Edgar about how rural electrification , combined with the paving of roads, and funding of public schools, helped transform bring the Palmetto State into the modern world.

Our next guest's Upstate company exhibited at the recent Electrification 2022 conference in Charlotte which we attended and we were surprised to learn that a traditional mechanical engineering firm like theirs was so interested in the electric vehicle infrastructure market. So we thought you might like to hear that story, as well. Mike Switzer interviews Darren Springer, president of Devita, Inc. in Greenville, SC.
Another space that we love – and whose stocks have been absolutely soaring lately – is the energy storage industry. In fact, if there were one sector to stay bullish on over the next 12 months, regardless of the macroeconomic backdrop, it's energy storage. Population growth, urbanization, and digitization are creating a demand for energy that we don't have the supply to meet. We need more energy.Most think it should come from more oil and gas, more solar and wind, more nuclear, maybe hydrogen. But the thing holding us back, especially on the clean tech side of things, is energy storage. So, this is a space that's due for massive growth in the months and years ahead. And indeed, we're seeing this start to play out in Europe as we speak. Greece, Ireland, Germany, the U.K, and more are all beginning to construct and deploy battery energy storage across the continent. We love innovative tech that works to solve real-world problems. And right now, energy storage systems are putting on their red capes and saving the day. And because of that, investment in the space is starting to grow exponentially. And one of the major catalysts for this expansion is the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act. That includes a first-ever investment tax credit (ITC) for standalone energy storage units. Those ITCs are what allowed solar panel construction to boom in the 2010s – and for solar stocks to rocket during that time. And now ITCs are doing the same thing for energy storage. We really could not be more bullish on this space.

About Charging Ahead A decade ago, no one would have guessed that GM would be one of the companies poised to lead America into the future. In Charging Ahead: General Motors, Mary Barra, and the Reinvention of an American Icon (HarperCollins Leadership – September 20, 2022), Detroit bureau chief for Bloomberg News, David Welch, captures the compelling story of GM's CEO, Mary Barra, who against all odds took the reins at GM in 2014. Since that time, she has attempted to reinvent a century-old company and equip it for the biggest change in transportation since the internal combustion engine replaced the horse. In the process, she has been ripping out GM traditions by the roots—and taking flak from all sides. Her plan is to make GM—the company famed for the gas-burning Corvette, hulking Cadillac Escalade, and carbon-spewing Silverado pickup—purely electric and clean by 2035.

The Future of HVAC is Green The green movement is gaining traction in the sales process for home services. Many companies are investing in sustainable practices, products, and technologies. The definition of green jobs is also evolving. There are now green opportunities in sales, marketing, sustainable building products, real estate, and many other vocations. With new sustainable technologies and easy access to renewable resources, it's becoming more accessible than ever to switch to environmentally friendly practices and choose green alternatives. In the sales process, there are a few key things to keep in mind when selling green home services. First, educate yourself about the different types of sustainable practices and available products. There are many options, so it's important to know what your customers are looking for. You can find information about sustainable practices online, in home improvement stores, or in-home energy audits. Second, explain the benefits of sustainable practices to your customers. Many people are interested in saving money on their energy bills but may not be aware of all the other benefits of sustainability. For example, sustainable practices can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality and water conservation. Finally, show your customers that you're committed to sustainability. This can be done by using green products in your home or office, supporting local green businesses, and becoming involved in environmental organizations. When customers see that you're invested in sustainability, they'll be more likely to trust and do business with you. Selling green home services is a great way to be on the cutting edge of the home services industry. By educating yourself about sustainable practices and products, you'll be able to offer your customers the best possible options for their home. And by showing your commitment to sustainability, you'll build trust and credibility with your customers, leading to more business. As utility rates continue to rise, sustainable technologies like cold climate heat pumps and inverter technology are becoming increasingly valuable investments. If you live in an area that experiences freezing temperatures, you may want to consider installing a cold climate heat pump. These pumps are electric and provide reliable comfort while also being safer for the environment. Inverters also make heat pumps more environmentally friendly by efficiently controlling motor speed and preventing energy waste. After a natural disaster, many homeowners and business owners face the daunting task of rebuilding. While some damage is too extensive to repair, replacement is the best option in many cases. This is especially true when it comes to HVAC systems. New Regulations New regulation changes make it easier for homeowners and businesses to replace their HVAC systems with more environmentally friendly options. In the past, the easiest option was usually to replace damaged building systems with an equal product replacement after a natural disaster. However, this is no longer the best course of action. Now, homeowners and businesses have the opportunity to upgrade their HVAC systems and make a positive impact on the environment. By replacing old, inefficient HVAC systems with new, more efficient ones, homeowners and businesses can save money on their energy bills and help reduce their carbon footprint. Suppose you're considering replacing your HVAC system after a natural disaster; research all your options. There are a variety of environmentally friendly HVAC systems on the market, and the right one for you will depend on your specific needs and budget. With so many options available, there's no reason not to switch to a more sustainable HVAC system. We all can participate in the green movement in various ways, but motivating people and companies can still be challenging. Action is the single biggest hurdle to adopting green trends. Electrification and efficiency upgrades are the types of improvements we should push for in the HVAC sector. This will not only provide carbon reduction but also provide a significant return on investment over time. Although educating a market and taking action takes time, the global energy crisis and the cost of fossil fuels recently hitting an all-time high are accelerating interest in renewable energy sources and technologies. There are many ways that we can reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and make our buildings more efficient. One way is to switch to electric heating and cooling systems. Electric systems are much more efficient than fossil fuel-based systems and produce zero emissions. Another way to improve efficiency is to upgrade insulation and ensure that windows and doors are properly sealed. These simple measures can reduce heat loss by up to 30 percent. In addition to making buildings more efficient, we also need to use less energy overall. One way to do this is to switch to LED lighting, which operates 50-80 percent less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs. We can also use solar power to heat and cool our buildings. Solar energy is free once you have installed the necessary equipment and produce zero emissions. What's Next? The heating and cooling industry also sees increased research and development in green technology. There are opportunities to sell these new advances. Say a building runs on renewable sources and wants to install an updated HVAC system - the owner would be interested in an efficient, eco-friendly design that wouldn't put too much strain on the power grid. This is where HVAC companies can step in and offer their latest and most fantastic products. As we see a shift towards renewable energy, the HVAC industry must keep up with the latest advancements. By doing so, we can help buildings run more efficiently and support the move away from fossil fuels. If you're looking to save money on your energy bill and help the environment, investing in a green HVAC system is a great way to do so. With the Inflation Reduction Act set to provide tax breaks for those who use clean energy, now is the perfect time to switch to a more sustainable option. Not only will you save money, but you'll also be doing your part to help the planet.

The evolution of transportation systems to be electrified has been a rising story in the power sector for years, and thanks to advancing technologies and progressing electric vehicle (EV) policies it is also poised to be the defining story for utilities over the next decade or two. EVs bring the electric power sector and the transportation industry together like never before, and because the changes needed are so unprecedented, power leaders don't have a singular playbook to follow on how these coming years should play out. While thought leaders in the energy space agree that change is coming and utilities must prepare, the precise strategy for this transformation does not have a consensus. As these conversations play out, geographic information systems (GIS) and related tools will be critical, but the exact way to utilize these solutions even sparks debate. And so on this episode of the Energy Central Power Perspective Podcast, returning guests Bill Meehan and Pat Hohl, both Directors of Electric Utility Solutions at Esri, join podcast host Jason Price and producer Matt Chester to take these debates to the airwaves. What should utility leaders be doing today to prepare for the EV future of tomorrow? What are the best ways to integrate GIS tools in that process? And how exactly will the next 5, 10, 20 years play out? Bill and Pat go point-counterpoint in the Power Perspectives Podcast's first debate.

Ford will release the next generation Mustang for sale in March next year expected to be the last opportunity for Mustang fanciers to own an internal combustion engine model before the company goes full electric by 2030. The final seventh generation petrol Mustang will be previewed on September 14 on opening day of the Detroit Motor Show. In what could be the last of its kind, Ford is asking Mustang owners to form a parade referred too as The Stampede stretching from Ford's Dearborn headquarters to downtown Detroit. The move toward electrification is expected to see the loss of around 10,000 jobs as the car maker rationalises towards a less labour intensive future, electric cars requiring fewer components and sharing many of them as well. Since April 1 in the U.S. Ford has sold 286 more electric Mach-E Mustangs compared to petrol models. I'm David BerthonSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

We ran into our next guest's engineering company while attending the Electrification 2022 conference in Charlotte recently. With new federal money soon to be coming down the pipeline to address climate change, their work in the sustainability and nuclear industries should certainly be affected. Mike Switzer interviews Shayn Lasa, with Burns & McDonnell in Greenville, SC.
GUESTS: Lukas Neckermann, David Woessner, Olaf SakkersABOUT THIS EPISODEFor a consumer, the best price is no price at all. After all, free is the magic number.But we all know that nothing in life is ever really free. Free is always factored into the cost somewhere along the line. But promoting something as free hides that cost, and leads to a complacency that comes with consequences.Free parking encourages us to use our cars. And free delivery prevents us thinking twice about buying something, especially if free returns are also part of the deal.In the quest to go emission-free and carbon-free, is it possible to also enjoy the other things that we like to have for free?After all, we all know there's no such thing as a free lunch.Ride caught up recently with future mobility investors David Woessner, of Future Of, and Olaf Sakkers, of Red Blue Capital, and Lukas Neckermann, the COO of Splyt, the mobility super app enabler. We recorded this conversation at the end of an event and just managed to bring the discussion to a close before the stand we were using was dismantled around us.REFERENCESHere are links to support some of the comments made during the show:DW.com "Fast Fashion - Dumped in Chile's Atacama Desert"theguardian.com "Past the parcel: how the end of free returns will change the way we shop"CNBC "Why ‘free' shipping isn't free"thedrive.com "Zillow's Satellite View Shows the Ghosts of Neighborhoods Erased By America's Highways"fastcompany.com "America has eight parking spaces for every car.

Hello everyone and welcome back to CleanTechies the Podcast. This is episode 56.___________If you are a climate tech founder with specific questions you'd like us to ask -- OR -- looking for capital and strategic partner introductions, please reach out to me via the Slack Channel or LinkedIn and we are glad to help in any way we can.___________ Today's conversation is with Rekha Sharma the founder of Solv4x. Rekha spent a number of years working for CAISO which, for those unfamiliar is the grid operator in California. During her time there she dealt with the issue of energy demand irregularities the more renewable energy that came on the grid and the more electrification permeated the grid. That experience led her to seek a solution which is what she's doing with Solv4X. In this conversation she walks us through the evolution of how she got to where she is, the steps she took to get here, and how the first vertical she's focusing on is the EV Charging space. Generally speaking, this was a really great conversation and I personally enjoyed it a lot as she was able to help shed light on the decision-making process to leave a stable job to start this business. Generally, very inspiring. Main Talking Points: IntroThe shift to electrification Her early careerThe evolution of the gridWhat is Solve4XSeeing CAISOs issues firsthandGetting startedFinding the right partnersGetting capitalMany small tweaks How the incubators helpedPicking the right incubatorDivision of labor & specialties in the labor marketUser experience Internships and the importance of hands-on experience Giving back to the people Wrapping up We hope you enjoy today's episode - please reach out with any specific questions or discussion points.

Building codes: they might sound boring, but they're actually the front lines in a nationwide battle to decarbonize our buildings. And they do a lot more than keeping your home from falling down over your head. They regulate everything from energy efficiency, to the kind of fuel your stove runs on, to whether your building has an electric vehicle charging port – all super important facets of building decarbonization. And if designed correctly, building codes can also help address issues like public health, pollution, and even adaptation to the effects of climate change. In this episode, Melissa speaks with Michael Gerrard, an expert on environment and climate law and director of the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia University about how to unlock this secret weapon – and what's getting in the way of greener building codes. The Big Switch is produced by Columbia University's Center on Global Energy Policy in partnership with Post Script Media. This episode was produced by Alexandria Herr and Daniel Woldorff. Theme music and mixing by Sean Marquand. Story editing by Anne Bailey. A special thanks to Natalie Volk, Kirsten Smith and Kyu Lee. Our executive editor is Stephen Lacey.
