Cornerstone Participates in City of Glasgow, KY Project Converting Landfill Methane Gas Into Electrical Power

MIDDLETOWN, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/24/14 -- Cornerstone Environmental Group, LLC announces that it is providing landfill gas engineering and air permitting services to the City of Glasgow, Kentucky for a project that will convert methane gas produced by the City's landfill into electrical power. At peak production, the project will supply the electrical power needs of about 450 residences as well as serve as a back-up power source for the city's wastewater treatment plant.

The unique sustainable green energy project involves a partnership between the City of Glasgow and the East Kentucky Power Cooperative (EKPC) through its local affiliate, Farmers Rural Electric Cooperative (Farmers), to install the landfill gas collection system and sell the captured gas to EKPC at a wholesale rate. EKPC will generate electricity from the landfill gas for sale to Farmers. The $1.3 million gas collection system is being funded by loans and grants, as well as the City of Glasgow itself.

Commonwealth of Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear was recently at the site to present a check for $100,000 that the city received from a Kentucky Energy Efficiency and Conservation for Local Governments grant, which will be used to help fund the project. "This effort is the ultimate recycling project -- using science and innovation to literally turn trash in to energy," said Governor Beshear. "Thanks to the vision and creativity of both the public and private partners in this project, the city of Glasgow will have a renewable energy source, save local tax dollars and reduce their carbon footprint on the planet."

Matthew Davies, Co-President of Cornerstone agreed, adding, "What sets the Glasgow project apart from other landfill gas-to-energy projects we have worked on is the extremely high level of collaboration among the partners and the leadership and foresight of the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the City of Glasgow. This economic development project will provide high quality jobs and affordable reliable renewable electricity, as well as environmental benefits. We are so excited to be supporting the City of Glasgow and EKPC and cannot wait to be present when commercial power production starts."

After more than five years of DevOps, definitions are evolving, boundaries are expanding, ‘unicorns’ are no longer rare, enterprises are on board, and pundits are moving on. Can we now look at an evolution of DevOps? Should we? Is the foundation of DevOps ‘done’, or is there still too much left to do? What is mature, and what is still missing?

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...
Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.
