Oil Heat Cares Foundation donates new boiler and installation to grateful NYC family
Gonzalez, a member of the New York City chapter of OESP who had patched up the family's old boiler in the past to give it as much life as possible, encouraged Orizal to apply for a grant through “Oil Heat Cares,” the OESP's national charity. “As soon

The Department of Energy and Climate Change's Warm Front Scheme to tackle fuel poverty in England helped to improve the energy efficiency of over 635,000 households between June 2005 and March 2008. There were, however, 1.9 million vulnerable households in 2006, so this rate of progress will still leave many in fuel poverty in 2010. The installation of central heating systems and insulation in homes has helped vulnerable. 86 per cent of assisted households are either highly satisfied or satisfied with the work done. The delivery of the Scheme has been largely effective but it has been impaired by problems in Scheme design. The Government's use of proxy measures, such as benefit entitlement, to determine who is eligible for Scheme grants is a pragmatic approach, but it has resulted in...
When the Abbott Power Plant began operation in September 1940, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was running for a historic third term, the Battle of Britain raged over London’s skies, and the cartoon character Bugs Bunny had only recently made... Seventy-six years later, the heat and power generation plant in Champaign, Il. still supplies the majority of the energy for the University of Illinois’ flagship campus. Its development has been shaped by fickle market forces, geopolitical turmoil and rising environmental concern that stretch well beyond Illinois and the Midwest. Abbott has added new, more efficient turbines and boilers. Oil embargoes roiled global markets in the 1970s, and so the plant switched fuel sources (and switched back again). Today, Abbott looks toward a smarter, cleaner energy future with an eye toward technology that would capture planet-warming emissions before they escape into the atmosphere. It is also a reminder that while a lot has changed in energy over time, a lot has also stayed the same. In 1940, an estimated 92 percent of primary energy consumed by Americans came from fossil fuels. That’s despite the invention and rise of nuclear, solar, wind and other forms of power. Similarly, Abbott was built to burn fossil fuels to provide heat and electricity for the growing University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) campus. Today, it continues to use a mix of coal, natural gas and fuel oil – albeit more cleanly and efficiently – to supply up to 89 percent of the campus’ energy needs. Solar production and an array of energy-savings measures have been added to the campus portfolio, but the overall energy profile remains the same. The challenge – as evident at UIUC and elsewhere – lies in the myriad needs energy generation must satisfy and the vast, heavy-duty infrastructure needed to sustain it. Consumers have come to demand energy that is simultaneously cheap, reliable,... Meeting all of those benchmarks for a campus that consumes roughly 28,000 households worth of energy per year can be a tall order. “We’re trying to balance all of those things as much as possible,” says Mike Larson, director of utility operations at UIUC. The stakes are particularly high, Larson notes, given that the university spends hundreds of millions of dollars each year in research , much of which requires that steam and electricity service be uninterrupted. These constraints might help explain why – despite urgent calls to reduce carbon-based energy sources that contribute to climate change – building a smart, clean power grid doesn’t typically happen overnight. While the energy industry is increasingly supported by telecommunication innovations, it has yet to match the quick, Moore’s-Law pace with which Silicon Valley evolves. “If there’s an issue [with a piece of information technology], they download a patch, no problem,” says Kevin O’Brien, director of Illinois Sustainable Technology Center (ISTC) at UIUC’s Prairie Research Institute. In this marketplace of power generation – being able to deliver reliable power that’s also affordable – 90 percent success would not make it at all. That’s one of the things that’s really different in the energy space. Beyond coal Like many public and private institutions, the University of Illinois shares in the push to transition to cleaner, smarter energy sources. In 2010, UIUC was the first Big Ten institution to submit a climate action plan to the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment. That plan outlined a path toward achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. It called for a study of how the university might eliminate all coal use by 2017. Five years later, an extensive review of the school’s utilities operations warned that doing so... ” The price volatility of switching to natural gas – in conjunction with the cost of accelerating new energy investment – was of great financial concern. “Over the past few years, renewable energy investments have become much more cost effective, but often still require significant subsidies to compete with traditional energy sources,” the school’s Utility Master.
