World energy use will continue its steady climb to 736 billion British thermal units in 2040, a 28 percent boost from 2015 levels, according to the newly released U.S. Energy Information Administration awaited “International Energy Outlook 2017” report. China and India will be responsible for half of that leap in energy consumption. “Renewables are the world’s fastest-growing energy source, with consumption increasing by an average 2.3 percent a year between 2015 and 2040,” the EIA said.
The cost of natural gas, a major fuel for generating electricity, has sharply declined at a rate of 8.4 percent per year for a decade, according to new data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Still, electricity prices have climbed 1.5 percent per year between 2006 and 2016, the EIA said.
LO3 Energy is at the heart of efforts to transform the electric marketplace. It is erecting the Brooklyn Microgrid to facilitate energy trading among prosumers not far from where the Brooklyn Dodgers once ruled. The Energy Times this week talked with Lawrence Orsini, LO3's chief executive, about the company's endeavors, the energy changes ahead and their implications. He will be speaking at the Empowering Customers & Cities conference November 7-8 in Chicago. This is the second of a two-part series.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
