SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. - October 31, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Dynapower, a global leader in power conversion and energy storage solutions, has partnered with Alphastruxure and Montgomery County, Maryland to provide energy storage that will help provide uninterrupted power to the county's fleet of electric buses using on-site generation including renewable resources.

The Brookville Smart Energy Bus Depot uses an integrated system of solar, microgrid energy storage, and electric charging stations which will eventually power 70 electric buses (50% of the Brookville bus fleet) with 4.14 megawatts of charging capacity. Transitioning these 70 buses at the depot from diesel to electric, powered by the on-site clean energy microgrid, will reduce lifetime emissions by 62 percent, equivalent to more than 160,000 tons of greenhouse gases over the next 25 years.

Dynapower's 3 megawatt/4.3 megawatt hour CPS-i Integrated Energy Storage System provides the microgrid battery energy storage for the depot, storing power to charge the electric buses and enabling 100% operational capacity in the event of a grid outage. It also allows participation in a demand response program with Potomac Electric Power Company (Pepco), which supports regional grid performance and optimization for greater energy resilience for local residents and businesses.

Statewide, Maryland is working towards a 50 percent zero-emission bus fleet by 2030. The Brookville Smart Energy Bus Depot is aligned with the county's priorities to reduce emissions from public transportation while enhancing the resilience of the community and infrastructure assets.

"We're proud and honored to help support Montgomery County's efforts to move towards sustainability, electrification and climate resilience," said Adam Knudsen, General Manager of Dynapower. "This project aligns with our own goals of powering a cleaner planet and reducing carbon emissions worldwide."

More Hydrogen Refuelling Stations Are on Their Way for Melbourne and Sydney

In an effort to make Australia's roads greener, Melbourne and Sydney are preparing to receive more hydrogen refuelling stations along the Hume Highway.

MELBOURNE, Australia - October 31, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

As Australia's automotive industry calls for solutions for a more sustainable future, Clara Energy has partnered with Hydrogen Fuels Australia (H2FA) to provide Melbourne and Sydney with even more hydrogen refuelling stations. Experts in car removal, Melbourne-based auto recyclers It Matters To You, explains why this is a significant step toward a greener auto industry.

Research is increasingly revealing that the way forward towards sustainability in the automotive sector in Australia is not by way of electric vehicles as was once thought, explains It Matters To You. Instead, experts are pushing for an uptake of green hydrogen fuel, which requires a much lower volume of rare earth materials to manufacture and releases significantly fewer carbon emissions than electric vehicle manufacturing has been proven to.

Although the technology required to mass produce green hydrogen exists and is readily available, governments have been slow to implement it. Clara Energy and H2FA have taken matters into their own hands and are now developing their own refuelling sites, one in Truganina, Victoria, and the other in Tarcutta, New South Wales, which is halfway between Sydney and Melbourne. 

It Matters To You reports that a representative from H2FA stated that this move will "decarbonise heavy freight and ultimately lead to the complete displacement of diesel for green hydrogen." The building of these refuelling sites will be the first time Australia has produced and distributed green hydrogen at this scale, marking a significant step towards sustainability for the industry.

The Tarcutta refuelling station is set to open in 2025 and will be powered primarily by solar energy. Four more hydrogen refuelling sites are planned along the Hume Highway between Victoria and Sydney and will help Australia along its way to net zero. For more information about sustainable auto recycling or cash for cars, Melbourne residents can contact It Matters To You today.

Singer/songwriter Ed Gumbrecht Delivers Soulful Music for the ’22 Fall Season

New single and new album bring heartening music for unsettled times

Singer/songwriter Ed Gumbrecht Delivers Soulful Music for the ’22 Fall Season
Make Us Wise, Ed Gumbrecht

Cover art: Make Us Wise, Ed Gumbrecht, October 2022

WASHINGTON - October 29, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Today, an original song arrives from Ed Gumbrecht, announcing a new season of resonant and expressive music. Make Us Wise became available on all streaming services starting at midnight, 10/29/22. In a year where the standard fare of catchy and campy music feels out of sync with the times, Gumbrecht delivers a refined alternative.

The song is a meditation on loss and the comforts of relationships. It suits a middle sensibility, neither too bright nor too somber. With a bassy melody and spare acoustic production, it has an intimate friendly quality. Its message is poignantly ripe for the season.

Make Us Wise as a single release is a prelude to Gumbrecht's upcoming album, Enter the Muses (out in November) -- a textured panoramic rendering of modern life's cares and surprises. His February 2022 release, Colorshow, revealed the artist as a poetic storyteller. His new album presents a deeper and more evocative collection of songs.  

Gumbrecht's growing oeuvre contains a harvest of music that will leave you feeling encouraged and alive in any season. Fans of the songwriter, folk rock, rock and country genres especially should listen, and add Make Us Wise and Enter the Muses to your Fall playlists.

OAK BROOK, Ill. - October 28, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

For the 12th consecutive year, CD One Price Cleaners and the Infant Welfare Society of Chicago are teaming up to help local children stay warm this winter with "Coats for Kids."

"Coats for Kids" is a charitable coat-donation program benefiting underserved children and families of the Angel Harvey Family Health Center in Chicago. The program runs from Saturday, Oct. 29 to Saturday, Nov. 12, 2022.

How it works: CD One Price Cleaners, Chicagoland's leading dry cleaning and laundry franchise, will collect donated, gently used coats at all 36 locations in Illinois and Indiana, including Chicago city and suburbs. Donated coats will be cleaned at the CD One locations and picked up by the Infant Welfare Society of Chicago.

"CD One is passionate about providing underserved youths in our community with proper clothing to navigate Chicago's frigid winters," said CD One Price Cleaners' Vice President of Marketing Jonathon Reckles. "We're excited to once again partner with the Infant Welfare Society to get these coats to those who need them the most."

Customers are encouraged to donate both child-sized and adult-sized coats and jackets.

Before the pandemic, CD One and IWS teamed up to collect 1,439 coats in 2020. This year, CD One and IWS aim to gather more than 1,500.

"We are pleased to again be working with CD One Price Cleaners — and marking the 12th anniversary of our partnership — in this year's fall coat drive," Auxiliary Co-Presidents Liz Berglund and Maria Enright said in a joint statement. "Providing these coats to children and families in need will make a big difference in their lives, especially in this financially challenging environment."

"Coats for Kids" donations never go unneeded, as over 200 new patients enroll monthly at The Infant Welfare Society.
