The Massachusetts projects will take advantage of the Clean Peak Energy Standard, an innovative program providing compensation for the value energy storage brings to the grid. Clean Peak requires utilities to purchase Clean Peak Energy Certificates (CPECs) from energy storage providers, much in the same way that previous solar programs often required utilities to purchase renewable energy credits. Energy storage systems are charged during the periods of maximum solar production. Then, as a substitute to traditional fossil fuel-powered peaking plants, energy storage provides additional capacity to the grid during peak demand hours, offsetting such power plants' significant carbon emissions. This program is expected to reduce emissions and lower electricity costs throughout the state.
In addition to its Massachusetts projects, UGE reports all three of its submissions for the second year of New Jersey's community solar pilot program received awards from the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU).

Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® is a national home improvement program administered by the DOE in collaboration with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to improve the energy efficiency of single-family and low-rise multifamily homes. It connects homeowners with a network of over 1,300 home performance contractors and utility and nonprofit energy efficiency program administrators to make upgrades that save energy and improve the comfort, health, and safety of their homes. Together with its Weatherization Assistance Program, DOE has serviced almost eight million U.S. homes with the same home energy improvements that the transformative investments in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal and the Build Back Better agenda will accelerate.
Sponsors and their networks of contractors follow a proven "whole-house" approach set by DOE guidelines to assess and improve home energy use with the most comprehensive and economically feasible upgrades, such as sealing leaks to control outside air from entering the home, adding insulation, or installing a new clean heating and cooling system like an ENERGY STAR® certified heat pump. Additional savings can be achieved by installing rooftop solar panels, EV chargers, or connected home products like smart thermostats that can monitor and adjust energy use. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal will invest in the American workforce to ramp up the manufacturing of solar panels, wind farms, batteries and other clean energy technologies for export.
Additionally, the EPA has launched new residential sector partnerships to accelerate efficiency and electrification retrofits with a focus on under-served residential households through its ENERGY STAR Home Upgrade Program. With rebates for home weatherization and electrification in the President's Build Back Better agenda, these inter-agency efforts will provide consumers, utility programs and energy efficiency service providers with greater access to residential energy efficiency solutions and technologies, which will enable many more households to lower their energy burden, which is especially high for low-moderate income households.

The NREL researchers considered solar and wind as the source of renewable energy, given that most plans for meeting the 100 pct renewables target take those into account. They also used the DOE EnergyPlus and OpenStudio building energy modeling tools to simulate energy demand, considering such factors as building size, age, and occupancy type. Data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration informed the scientists about the existing building stock characteristics and energy load used by the buildings. Further, the researchers separated the country into five climate zones, ranging from the hot and humid (Tampa, Florida) to the very cold (International Falls, Minnesota)along with New York City, El Paso, and Denver. Knowing the extremes of heating and cooling demands in each zone enabled the researchers to select the appropriate mix of renewable power sources to minimize any needed storage.
The researchers define long-duration storage as "energy storage systems that meet electricity demands for more than 48-hour durations." Therefore, long-duration energy storage provides power days or months after the electricity is generated. However, most long-duration storage technologies are either immature or not available everywhere. The NREL researchers calculated reaching the last 75 pct to 100 pct of renewable energy would result in significant increases in costs associated with long-duration energy storage. Instead of focusing on storage, the researchers emphasized the optimal mix of renewable resources, oversized generation capacities and investments in energy efficiency. The researchers note that multiple pathways exist to reach 100 pct renewable and, as the costs and performance of technologies change, new pathways will emerge, but they identified a key pathway that is achievable today.
The researchers also determined that over-sizing renewable capacities by a factor of 1.4 to 3.2 and aiming for 52 pct to 68 pct in energy savings through building energy efficiency measures lead to cost-optimal paths depending on region of the country. The report notes that making homes and offices more energy efficient reduces the amounts of renewable resources needed, decreases the amount of storage, and cuts transmission costs, ultimately supporting the implementation of a carbon-free energy system.
The NREL study was funded by the DOE Building Technologies Office (BETO). NREL is the U.S. DOE's primary national laboratory for renewable energy and energy efficiency research and development.

The report notes that while solar and wind energy jobs continued leading the global renewable energies sector -- accounting for a total of 4 million and 1.25 million jobs respectively -- liquid biofuels employment decreased as demand for transport fuels fell.
China held a 39 pct share of renewable energy jobs worldwide in 2020, followed by Brazil, India, the U.S. and members of the European Union. Many other countries are also creating jobs in renewables. Among them are Vietnam and Malaysia, key solar PV exporters; Indonesia and Colombia, with large agricultural supply chains for biofuels; and Mexico and the Russian Federation, where wind power is growing. In Sub-Saharan Africa, solar jobs are expanding in diverse countries like Nigeria, Togo and South Africa, according to the IRENA report.
