Thank you to everyone who attended the third annual RTC Summit, October 20-21, 2022 in Washington, DC.  The Summit helped thermal energy users —industrial, commercial, and institutional— and solutions providers connect, learn, and collaborate. We engaged on a range of topics, including the US Inflation Reduction Act, third-party financing for renewable thermal projects, greenhouse gas […]

Webinar: Thermal Energy Storage: An Opportunity For Industrial Decarbonization

Posted on Posted in Past Events

https://youtu.be/cd_UUlHrLbwThe RTC hosted a public webinar featuring our three sponsors that provide standalone thermal energy storage: Rondo Energy, Antora Energy, and Brenmiller Energy. These solutions decouple the availability of heat generated from renewable electricity, solar thermal, and other heat sources (such as waste heat) from when end users need it, bringing the decarbonizing of industrial […]

Case Study: University of California, Davis ‘Big Shift’ Electrification Project

Posted on Posted in Case Studies, Publications

The University of California, Davis constructed a new hot water heating system powered by electricity to replace old, natural gas-powered steam equipment. The project, named the Big Shift, will reduce UC Davis’ overall carbon emissions by at least 40% and enable the University to achieve Scope 1 and Scope 2 decarbonization by 2025.

Case Study: University of California Renewable Natural Gas/Biomethane Procurement

Posted on Posted in Case Studies, Publications, Uncategorized

Together with direct electrification, energy efficiency, and renewable electricity projects, the University of California1 (the University or UC) is procuring biomethane to replace 40% of its natural gas needs. This biomethane procurement strategy is an integral part of the University of California’s plan to reach net zero Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025.
