Renewable Energy

As more developers opt to diversify their portfolios, we’re seeing increased interest in more sustainable sources of energy. Transitioning from carbon-intensive fossil fuels to other energy sources helps to reduce our emissions while meeting ongoing electricity demand—and gets us closer to reaching climate goals. With renewable energy technology continuing to grow in popularity, we’ve launched a blog series focusing on different energy sources and best practices to consider before and during development.

Renewable Energy

Diversifying our energy mix is crucial to reducing our emissions and getting us closer to the climate goals outlined in the Paris Agreement and other legislation. By moving away from more carbon-intensive fossil fuels and toward more sustainable sources of renewable energy, we’re able to limit pollution while still meeting our growing needs for power and electricity. With renewable energy continuing to gain traction and more developers expanding into this sector as they work to reduce carbon intensity, we’re launching a blog series focusing on different renewable energy sources and best practices to consider before and during development.
