During the same period, coal-fired generation dropped by 8.3 pct but still accounted for 33 pct of global production -- too high to meet global climate change targets of keeping global temperatures from increasing by more than 2.7 F which, the report claims, needs coal power generation to fall by 13 pct per year for a decade, according to the report.
The EMBER -- fka "Sandbag" -- report collected data from 48 countries which make up 83 pct of global electricity production.

Homes with existing insulation or low-carbon heating can apply for funding for "secondary measures" such as draught proofing, double or triple-glazing for windows, energy-efficient doors to replace those installed before 2002, and various heating controls. The vouchers will cover roughly two-thirds of the overall cost for most homeowners, but possibly the entire cost for the lowest-income households.
About half of England's homeowners are already planning to apply, while the real figure could end up being about three quarters, according to the release. (Source: UK Green Homes Program, Yahoo Finance UK, 13 Aug., 2020)

Of the $1.3 million, $1 million is for streetlight conversions through the Efficient Building Fund (EBF), and $350,000 is a Clean Water State Revolving Fund loan for a storm water mitigation project adjacent to the future Pawtucket-Central Falls Train Station.
The Efficient Buildings Fund provides below-market interest rate loans to municipalities, school districts and quasi-state entities to invest in clean energy projects. Since 2016, the Efficient Buildings Fund has reduced energy, maintenance and debt-service costs for municipalities by approximately $66 million through investments in onshore wind, solar, LED lighting and highly efficient heating and cooling improvements. These projects are estimated to reduce emissions equivalent to the annual carbon footprint of 3,400 American homes. Overall, the Bank's Efficient Buildings Fund has provided $33 million in loans to thirteen borrowers across the state.
