May 20, 2022--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--U.S. energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions increased 6% in 2021, after a jump in economic activity and energy consumption as initial impacts of COVID-19 began to wane, according to the U.S. Energy Administration (EIA). But many U.S power utilities have pledged net-zero carbon by 2050, and their efforts to do so could keep energy-related emissions at lower levels moving forward. Industrial Info is tracking $31.4 billion worth of renewable-energy generation projects that are under construction in the U.S.

Those utilities include Duke Energy Corporation (NYSE:DUK) (Charlotte, North Carolina), Southern Company (NYSE:SO) (Atlanta, Georgia), Sempra Energy (NYSE:SRE) (San Diego, California), Dominion Energy Incorporated (NYSE:D) (Richmond, Virginia) and WEC Energy Group (NYSE:WEC) (Milwaukee, Wisconsin).
