News: Trucking Efficiency Publishes Confidence Report On Tractor Aerodynamics

By CWR May 4, 2016
The latest Confidence Report released today by the North American Council for Freight Efficiency and Carbon War Room explores the benefits and challenges of a variety of tractor aerodynamic devices. During the past 20 years, truck manufacturers have done a good job of improving the aerodynamics of sleeper tractors, saving up to 10% in fuel costs. Tractor aerodynamic devices improve fuel efficiency by reducing drag so that it takes less fuel to move down the road, especially at higher speeds. Read More.

News: Saint Lucia Issues Request for Proposals for 3 MW Airport Solar Park

By Carbon War Room February 22, 2016
The 3 MW solar park will reside north of Hewanorra International Airport and represents the first utility-scale solar project in Saint Lucia. Once operational, the peak solar capacity is anticipated to provide over five percent of the island’s power generation needs. Earlier this month, LUCELEC and the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Energy, Science and Technology announced their commitment to renewable energy at the National Energy Transition Strategy (NETS) signing ceremony. This RFP demonstrates quick progress and dedication by both parties toward achieving Saint Lucia’s energy goals. Read More.
