Duke Energy and ENN Working Together on Green Cities Project
Duke Energy and the Chinese-based ENN Group have agreed to work together to develop greener cities in China and the U.S. The companies will work with advanced energy, building and transportation technologies to improve cities. ENN wants to develop clean energy in China by creating the country’s first smart energy “eco-city” in Langfang, China. Duke will collaborate on this project and use the experience domestically to improve clean energy in the United States. The companies want a green city that generates electricity with low emissions, is energy efficient, has energy storage capability, energy recovery capacity and is electric vehicle-friendly.

The Publix-centered shopping center in Gainesville, Florida will be home to a 46,000 square-foot rooftop installation that aims to be one of the five largest rooftop systems in the state. The 350 kW system atop The Exchange shopping area will be online by this year. The local utility, Gainesville Regional Utilities, will buy the power as a part of its feed-in tariff program.
