太平洋煤電達到可再生能源重要里程碑

續領導全美溫室氣體減排 [舊金山訊] – 全美最乾淨的公共事業之一的太平洋煤電(PG&E),近日宣布其已供應近百分之30的用戶可再生能源。 加州及 PG&E在使用潔淨能源及減少溫室氣體排放上,持續在全國扮演著領導者的角色。加州針對州內的電力公司設定目標,期望全州的電力公司在2014年至2016年間達到每年平均百分之23.3的可再生能源比例標準(Renewable Portfolio Standard)。PG&E在2015年供給的電力,有百分之 29.5為可再生能源,遠遠超越此目標。此外,針對加州所設定在2020年時,可再生能源的使用率為百分之33的計劃,目前PG&E已大大超前所預定的進度。 宏觀PG&E整體的能源組合,包含大型水力發電及核能發電後,PG&E提供給用戶的電能中有超過百分之 58的電力來源是零溫室氣體排放。 PG&E 供電營運總監Geisha Williams今日表示,對公司目前在潔淨能源使用上的領先及最近達成的里程碑感到引以為傲。 Williams表示,「1970年代開始的能源效率計劃,透過如太陽能及風力發電等新科技的供電,潔淨能源有了巨大的轉變及飛躍的發展。這些電能形式即是PG&E每日供應給用戶的綠能電力的一部份。我們在可再生能源上有極大的進展,但我們不會就此停止。我們已準備好朝著州長布朗(Brown)提出的新目標前進,期望到2030年,一半的能源將由可再生能源供應。我們希望藉此向其他州顯示未來要達到潔淨能源的應用是可行的,這對我們後代的生活也是必要的。」 PG&E供應多種可再生能源,包含太陽能、風能、地熱能、生物質能及小型符合再生資格的水力發電。此多樣化的能源組合使PG&E的碳排放量比全國公共事業的碳排放量平均值少三分之二。PG&E也領先全國,已有超過21萬5千名用戶的屋頂型太陽能板連接於電網上。 隨著多年開發的大型可再生能源項目的啟用,PG&E正擴大其潔淨能源的能源組合,PG&E的用戶也正大量享用更潔淨的電能。PG&E新的太陽能選擇計劃(Solar Choice)提供用戶減少碳足跡的選擇,用戶不需安裝太陽能板,即可購買百分之百或百分之50由太陽能發電的電能。 此外,能源智慧(Energy Intelligence)公司在其「新能源」(New Energy)期刊上發表的年度「全球前百大」(Global Top 100)排名中,PG&E被列為全國最乾淨的公共事業之一。此排名的依據是碳排放量及可再生能源的使用量。 去年底,PG&E簽署支持白宮一計劃,旨在集結全美企業針對氣候變遷做出行動。PG&E 也於去年底與州長Jerry Brown及加州代表團一同在巴黎參與聯合國氣候峰會 (COP21)。 關於PG&E 太平洋煤電公司(PG&E)為PG&E Corporation (NYSE:PCG) 企業擁有,屬全國最大煤電公司之一。總部設於舊金山,擁有兩萬多名員工,為北加州及中加州多達1600萬名用戶提供最潔淨的能源。欲知更多詳情,請點閱以下網站查詢:pge.com/chinese/ 及 pge.com/about/newsroom/。 Read More »
