    Decarbonization requires more access to and consensus around energy data

    Mar 30, 2021 12:00 PM

    Between government regulations and rising consumer demand, corporations are increasingly relying on renewable energy markets to meet requirements and goals around decarbonization.

This has created a need for more data to better track and quantify progress toward decarbonization.​

    Mar 23, 2021 12:00 PM

    A new report from a coalition of environmental groups reframes energy efficiency in terms that might better resonate with Ohioans across the political spectrum. “While efficiency is a correct term, what we’re really talking about is reducing energy waste,” said Miranda Leppla, vice president of energy policy for the Ohio Environmental Council. And Ohio is on track this decade to waste a lot of energy — and money.
