PG&E Ranked Among Global Top 100 Green Utilities

11/05/2015

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has been named one of the nation's greenest utilities in the annual Global Top 100 ranking by Energy Intelligence’s New Energy. The rankings are based on carbon emissions and renewable energy.

PG&E was ranked No. 23 out of 100 global utilities, making it the fourth highest-rated utility in the United States. The company also appeared in the top 100 in 2014.

“We’re honored to be among the world leaders when it comes to providing clean energy to our customers. Our dedication to sustainability is both long-lived and forward-looking, as evidenced by our strong support for California’s ambitious climate goals as well as the new technologies and partnerships that will help us achieve them,” said Melissa Lavinson, PG&E’s chief sustainability officer and vice president of federal affairs and policy.

PG&E delivers some of the nation’s cleanest energy. In fact, the carbon dioxide emissions rate from the company’s delivered electricity is about two-thirds cleaner than the national utility average. More than 55 percent of the electricity the utility delivers to its customers comes from renewable or greenhouse-gas-free resources.

In October, PG&E Corporation Chairman, CEO and President Tony Earley was among corporate leaders at the White House who announced new pledges to reduce greenhouse gases and address the impact of climate change. Beyond adding even more renewables, PG&E’s focus continues to be on encouraging energy efficiency, supporting rooftop solar, making investments in smarter energy infrastructure and pushing for broader adoption of electric vehicles.

EI New Energy, a publication covering trends in carbon, renewable energy and transportation, selected 100 of the largest power generators from around the world, accounting for just over half of global capacity. The ranking evaluated “greenness” according to carbon dioxide emissions per megawatt hour, volume of renewable energy capacity and proportion of renewables to total capacity. Rather than approach the subject by country or region, the report compares utilities around the world, from both industrialized and emerging markets.
