CEO Climate Dialogue is aiming for economy-wide carbon emission reductions of 80 pct or more by 2050, with aggressive near- and mid-term emission reductions commensurate with that goal.
The group also "aims to build bipartisan support for climate policies that will increase regulatory and business certainty, reduce climate risk, and spur investment and innovation needed to meet science-based emissions reduction targets." BP, Shell, BG&E, DTE Energy, Exelon and other energy majors are among the group's membership.

In February, Ford Motor Company made a similar commitment to procure 500,000 MWh of locally sourced Michigan wind energy via DTE's MIGreen Power Program.
Among its clean energy efforts, GM is a member of the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance as well as an early signatory of RE100, which is a collaborative global initiative that brings together influential businesses that are committed to 100 pct renewable power and the delivery of renewable electricity.
DTE Energy, which has 13 wind parks in Michigan, plans to double its renewable energy capacity over the next five years, investing in another $2 billion by 2024. The utility also proposes to build at least 3,000 additional MW of solar and wind energy over the next 20 years. DTE currently produces about 1,000 MW of primarily wind renewable energy.

The project will use underground anaerobic digesters to process daily cattle manure into methane gas that will then be converted into RNG transportation fuel.
According to DTE VP for Business Development Kevin Dobson, the process will reduce yearly greenhouse gas emissions significantly -- equivalent to removing 9,200 vehicles from the road and saving five million gallons of gasoline.
The project is expected to be in operation early next year. (Source: Pagel's Ponderosa Dairy, WBAY Action News 2, 8 Aug., 2018)Contact: Pagel's Ponderosa Dairy,

Fort Bend and Seabreeze bring the number of landfill gas-to-energy projects DTE operates in Texas to three and gives DTE five facilities enterprise-wide which convert landfill gas to pipeline-quality renewable natural gas (RNG). RNG, which is versatile and fully compatible with the U.S. natural gas infrastructure, is used to power compressed natural gas and liquefied natural gas vehicles, offsetting the use of fossil-based fuel.
Nationwide, DTE's landfill gas portfolio includes:
13 projects generating renewable electricity; 3 creating natural gas for industrial applications; and
5 producing RNG for vehicle use and other gas services.

Pine River Wind Engineering will design, engineer, construct, install, start-up and test the Pine River Wind Park which will incorporate 65 wind turbines with a total capacity of 161.3 MW of energy. Construction is expected to be completed prior to Dec. 31, 2018, at which time ownership of the wind park will be transferred to DTE Energy under the terms of the MPSC approved contract.
The contract reflects lower costs to customers than originally anticipated and includes the benefit of the federal production tax credit.
