The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that "from generation to transmission to distribution to end use, the energy lost in the greater Pittsburgh area is enough to power Pennsylvania and West Virginia for more than a year."
"Improving the region’s energy infrastructure was the topic of the “Energy for the Power of 32” conference held Thursday at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. It brought together utility executives, policymakers, professors and environmentalists from the 32 counties surrounding Pittsburgh."
"A main theme of the event was energy loss, which is almost as much in the region as that produced by coal. The region’s energy systems must be more efficient, speakers said."
