Solar Thermal C&I Decarbonization Series- Part 2

On September 24, 2020 the RTC hosted the second installment of our solar thermal webinar series, titled “Solar Thermal C&I Decarbonization.” Building on our May 28 look at solar thermal, the RTC is continuously trying to expand our look at how solar thermal innovations can help companies – and particularly industrials – decarbonize. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) discussed […]

Webinar Report: Developments in Renewable Thermal Instruments and Markets

By Blaine Collison, Senior Vice President, David Gardiner and Associates, and Claire Dougherty, Research Associate, David Gardiner and Associates During its July webinar, the RTC featured two important developments in renewable thermal markets: Rachael Terada, Director, Technical Projects for the Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) provided an update on the draft Green-e certification for renewable natural gas (RNG), and; Ben […]

Webinar: New Developments in Renewable Thermal Instruments and Markets

Thermal energy stakeholders consistently point to the need for instruments and markets similar to Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), which have proven invaluable in enabling and accelerating renewable electricity transactions in both voluntary and compliance markets. M-RETS and the Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) have made significant progress towards developing renewable thermal certificate (RTC) markets. On July 22, 2020 from 12-1pm […]

Webinar: Does Solar Thermal Make Sense for Your Organization? Solar Thermal C&I Decarbonization Series Part 1

Solar thermal is an established renewable thermal technology, but it has received far less attention in recent years than solar photovoltaics (PV). The Renewable Thermal Collaborative is taking a two-part look at the state and potential of this exciting technology in 2020. On Thursday, May 28 from 1-2pm ET, the RTC presented the first session on solar thermal. RTC Sponsors […]

Webinar on The Renewable Thermal Buyers’ Statement: Companies and Institutions Call for More Renewable Thermal Options

More than a dozen large industrial, commercial, and institutional energy users recently issued the Renewable Thermal Buyers’ Statement. The Buyers’ Statement is a project of the Renewable Thermal Collaborative (RTC), and serves as an invitation to market stakeholders to collaborate to increase and accelerate energy users’ access to cost-effective, responsibly-sourced, renewable and lower-carbon thermal energy solutions. On Tuesday, April 2 […]

Webinar: Overcoming Barriers to Renewable Heating and Cooling

Energy used for heating and cooling comprises approximately 50 percent of total global final energy demand and 39 percent of energy-related carbon dioxide emissions. Yet despite its large energy and carbon footprint and its significant potential to reduce carbon emissions, the use of renewable energy for heating and cooling applications has received relatively little attention compared with renewable electricity. The […]
