Macom facility aims to cut CO2 by nearly 2000 tons per year


Electricity and thermal energy to be produced onsite at Macom's Lowell facility with help from Renew Energy Partners

Renew Energy Partners, a firm dedicated to speeding carbon reduction, has entered into an agreement with the semiconductor firm Macom.

The Macom project is anticipated to be operational in late 2021 and is expected to reduce Carbon Dioxide emissions of 1869 metric tons each year or the equivalent emissions of 216 homes energy for one year.

Renew's 'Microgrid-as-a-Service' program allows commercial and industrial customers to meet aggressive sustainability targets, improve energy efficiency, achieve energy resilience and reduce operating expenses. Microgrids typically require capital investments and ongoing monitoring, however, with Renew's program, the project is fully funded by Renew and operational risk is transferred to Renew.

"Renew is proud to help another organisation stay competitive in this changing world. This system will not only provide significant energy savings and resilient on-site energy for many years to come, it is also expected to significantly reduce carbon emissions" said Stephen Pritchard, principal and cofounder.

Connecting the Compound Semiconductor Industry

The 13th CS International conference builds on the strengths of its predecessors, with around 40 leaders from industry and academia delivering presentations that fall within five key themes: Ultrafast Communication; Making Headway with the MicroLED; Taking the Power from Silicon, New Vectors for the VCSEL, and Ultra-wide Bandgap Devices.

Delegates attending these sessions will gain insight into device technology, find out about the current status and the roadmap for the compound semiconductor industry, and discover the latest advances in tools and processes that will drive up fab yields and throughputs.
