As the US transitions to an increased reliance on renewable energy, most of the action has been on the West Coast, where both Hawaii and California have set targets of 50 percent renewable energy by 2030.

As in California, that level of intermittent renewable energy can pose a challenge for the grid.
Google is preparing to expand a San Francisco carpooling program in a move that could that could set up a showdown with its one-time ally, the popular ride-hailing service Uber.
The plans will build upon a test service that Google's navigation app Waze launched three months ago in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Vaccines and rare seafoods would see the highest ROI when switching from current systems to IoT, while cheap produce and chemicals will take longer to pay for the IoT upgrade costs.
Reducing losses require smarter containers
For items like bananas or farmed salmon, Lux Research says the decision will depend on the loss rate.
