Lowering emissions in the Northeast: Key Strategy for a New, Sustainable Grid

Figure 2. Marginal Emissions by Month of Year, and Hour of Day. Columns 1 to 12 on the y-axis equate to Midnight through Noon; columns 3-24 are the PM hours. Source: NYSERDA, NY DPS 2016. New England: Reducing Emissions In New England, off-peak marginal emissions were shown to be significantly lower –0.7 percent less than during on-peak hours.[vii] On-peak emissions are at their highest when the temperature is highest. “In New England, high electric demand days (HEDDs) are typically characterized by high temperatures leading to elevated cooling (energy) demand. During peak energy demand periods, such as HEDDs, the ISO relies on peaking units, which are less utilized during the rest of the year but respond quickly to meet system demand. These peaking units are often jet (aero-derivative) or combustion turbines with higher emission rates.[viii] – ISO-NE. April 2019. Research showed that marginal emissions for hot, “high electric demand days” in 2017, were a full 34 percent higher than during off-peak hours.[ix] So by relying on energy stored at night to cool the building during the day, thermal energy storage can have a big effect on greenhouse-gas emissions in New England. This impact is only expected to grow as more wind power comes online across the region.[x] From Ice to Heat: Thermal Energy Storage in the Age of Electrification In recent years, regulators and policy-makers across the Northeast have embraced the electrification of heating as a means of reducing the region’s greenhouse gas emissions: by shifting heat from natural gas-powered boilers to electric heat pumps, consumers and businesses can reduce their carbon footprint by relying on an ever-cleaner grid rather than a fossil fuel. Thermal energy storage will soon be playing a role in this transformation. Trane has developed a thermal energy storage solution for both heating and cooling, the Thermal…

Participatory analysis of sustainable land and water management practices for integrated rural development in Myanmar | Journal of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene for Development | IWA Publishing

Besides providing reliable water resources for agricultural production, rural development efforts in Myanmar should target rural water security in terms of safe water supply and sanitation, and by mitigating water-related hazards. However, very few studies are available over the status of water-related development in rural areas of the country, and consequently on suitable practical solutions. The present paper describes a participatory workshop undertaken involving 45 rural development officers of the Department of Rural Development (DRD) of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation (MOALI), aimed at identifying suitable sustainable land and water management (SLWM) practices to be developed in rural areas of the country. Adoption of water safety plans (WSP), water harvesting, and soil and water bioengineering were strongly supported, while the need of improving water sanitation, especially in the poorest areas, was made evident. Insights of the participatory process confirmed that the poorest regions of Myanmar have also the worst water management structures. The results of the present work can represent a baseline information and a needs assessment for future development projects in the country. However, there is a strong need of more studies and reports targeting marginalized rural contexts of Myanmar, to support an equitable development.

19 November is World Toilet Day…Everyone must have sustainable sanitation that can fight climate change! | Land & Water | Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations | Land & Water | Fo…

Safe reuse of human waste helps save water, reduces and captures greenhouse gas emissions for energy production and provides agriculture with a reliable source of water and nutrients. Climate change is accelerating. Flood, drought and rising sea levels are threatening sanitation systems, from toilets to septic tanks to treatment plants. Floodwater can contaminate wells used for drinking water. Flooding can also damage toilets and spread human waste into communities and food crops, causing deadly and chronic diseases, and posing risks to crop and food safety. Today, 4.2 billion people live without access to safely managed sanitation. Instead they often use unreliable, inadequate toilets or practice open defecation. Open defecation and unimproved sanitation are one of the main factors leading to malnutrition, being major contributors to water and soil pollution. In rural areas, polluted waters are used for crop irrigation and other agricultural activities such as livestock watering, bringing pathogens and other contaminants into contact with crops and animals. Globally, 80% of the wastewater generated by society flows back into the ecosystem without being treated or reused, as well as untreated human waste gets out into the environment and spreads deadly and chronic diseases. When water is exposed to untreated human excreta, it becomes a breeding ground for parasites and, soil and water-borne diseases such as cholera, dysentery, E. coli, salmonella and soil-transmitted intestinal worms (helminthiases). Everyone must have sustainable sanitation that can fight climate change and keep communities healthy and functioning. Sustainable sanitation systems also make productive use of wastewater and bio solids that contain valuable water, nutrients and energy, to safely boost agriculture while reducing and capturing greenhouse gas emissions. FAO is supporting member countries to adopt the circular economy approach applied to agriculture, making it environmentally friendly, sustainable and more resilient to shocks such as COVID-19. It is…

HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases 36.9 million people globally were living with HIV in 2017. 21.7 million million people were accessing antiretroviral therapy in 2017. 1.8 million people became newly infected with HIV in 2017. 940 000 people died from AIDS-related illnesses in 2017. 77.3 million people have become infected with HIV since the start of the epidemic. 35.4 million people have died from AIDS-related illnesses since the start of the epidemic. Tuberculosis remains the leading cause of death among people living with HIV, accounting for around one in three AIDS-related deaths. Globally, adolescent girls and young women face gender-based inequalities, exclusion, discrimination and violence, which put them at increased risk of acquiring HIV. HIV is the leading cause of death for women of reproductive age worldwide. AIDS is now the leading cause of death among adolescents (aged 10–19) in Africa and the second most common cause of death among adolescents globally. Over 6.2 million malaria deaths have been averted between 2000 and 2015, primarily of children under five years of age in sub-Saharan Africa. The global malaria incidence rate has fallen by an estimated 37 per cent and the mortality rates by 58 per cent.

Circularity presents a real opportunity for our generation and while we have already done a lot, we recognise there is still much to be done. Read more here about the actions we are taking across a range of areas. Scroll to topic UNESDA position paper on the Circular Economy Action Plan UNESDA Soft Drinks Europe and its members have been driving sustainability throughout their value chain for decades. Packaging has an important role to play for the beverage industry, keepings its products safe, transportable and convenient for consumers. UNESDA is also a firm believer that packaging is a resource that should never be wasted. That’s why the soft drinks industry is taking numerous actions to achieve full circularity and support the Commission’s agenda to accelerate the transition towards a green economy. READ MORE Making Europe’s economy circular: the time is now By Tudy Bernier, Senior Policy Manager, UNESDA We are enthused to have sight of the Commission’s much anticipated Circular Economy Action Plan. The circular economy lies at the very heart of the Commission’s new regenerative growth strategy for Europe and UNESDA is fully committed to supporting the transition. As we embark on this next phase of Europe’s Circular Economy strategy, our industry needs three things: legal certainty, a long-term vision and a holistic approach, working in partnership with all actors. We need to create efficient collection schemes to increase collection of all beverage containers to ensure the availability of high quality rPET and continue to recycle aluminium and glass in a sustainable way. Only by doing this, can we guarantee a well-functioning internal market for secondary material. READ MORE Our packaging – sustainability and circularity PET recycling rates…
