Colombia ya tiene 345 construcciones con estándares sostenibles, lo que demuestra el compromiso que han asumido los empresarios del sector edificador, cuando se trata de desarrollar oferta que aporte al ahorro de agua, energía y otros recursos. Así lo reveló el Consejo Colombiano de Construcción Sostenible (CCCS), que –además– destacó que, de ese listado, 116 ya cuentan con el certificado de energía y diseño ambiental estadounidense LEED, que es el más utilizado en el país.

The Looming Issue With Tesla’s Model 3 Production Delay

In a brutal earnings call last week, EV maker Tesla revealed that the company may have to push back a ramp-up of production of its Model 3 electric car by three months, into March of next year. Originally, Tesla wanted to grow its production of the Model 3 to 5,000 units per week by the end of 2017. But the company, run by billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk, has hit bottlenecks in manufacturing and won’t make that timeline. As of the end of the third quarter of 2017, Tesla had delivered just 222 Model 3 cars.

EUREC supports campaign to allow ‘priority dispatch’ for small renewable

‘Priority dispatch’ – the rule whereby a renewable electricity produce is able to sell their electricity on the electricity market before bids are accepted from fossil fuelled plant, is being phased out. But the European Commission has proposed to exempt two categories of producers: small plants and demonstration projects. They should continue to be able to feed their electricity into the grid when they produce it, and be paid.
