What’s new in the world of alternative energy:
- $3.8B Canada-NYC Transmission Line Proposed for Renewable Power (SustainbleBusiness.com): An update on the plan to pump in wind and hydro power from Canada.
- NYC office buildings pricey, not green (Crain’s New York Business): An IBM study show’s the city’s buildings are horribly energy inefficient (surprise, surprise).
