High-voltage electricity lines must be upgraded in order to improve the ability of the nation's transmission grids to deliver sufficient and reliable power, concludes a recent report conducted by Cambridge Energy Research Associates.

An environmentally savvy office building will be the new home to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Annapolis, Md. The facility's green features include sinks that utilize unheated rainwater and computerized lights that tell occupants when to open the windows. Building owners expect to spend just $20,000 annually on energy costs, as compared to $70,000 for a conventional office building.
