NEC member NRG Energy was recently the subject of a glowing article in The Street. Written by John Licata, founder of a strategic consulting firm focused on the future of energy, the article praised NRG’s transition to low carbon energy options.
NRG is the largest independent power producer in the United States, creating enough power to support 42 million homes. It currently produces 5.5% of its energy through renewable sources, a number predicted to rise significantly. NRG is focused on reducing CO2 emissions 50% by 2030 and 90% by 2050. The company believes a variety of energy resources will help revenue growth. It sources its energy from fossil fuels, combined heat and power, nuclear and renewables, including solar, thermal and wind. NRG is also working on carbon capture projects, with the goal of bringing them to market.
“NRG is a forward thinking utility company that will leave an increasingly strong impression in its industry. That’s because the energy landscape is changing like never before. The need for clean energy is no longer a myth since climate change is real and at the forefront of political debate globally,” wrote Mr. Licata in his article.
The New England Council applauds NRG Energy for its commitment to providing renewable and responsible energy options.
