Renewable Energy

Envisioning a sustainable future through liquid renewable heating fuels and other renewable thermal technologies


Since 2018, Diversified Energy Specialists (DES) has been committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions across the nation. Central to that commitment is ongoing research and development into traditional fuel sources like residential heating oil and technological advances in thermal heating.

DES believes in a balanced, forward-looking energy strategy. We are committed to the financial future of residential heating companies across the Northeast, with a focus on reducing the carbon intensity of fossil fuels.

There is much to be optimistic about in the future of renewable energy. In Massachusetts, the Department of Energy Resources has offered incentives for a broad range of thermal energy technologies through its Alternative Energy Portfolio Standard program. Massachusetts sees the value of renewable energy technologies in the heating and cooling sector that reduce greenhouse gas emissions today.

Many states in the Northeast are following suit and considering thermal portfolio standards, emissions standards, and cap-and-trade programs for the building industry. These types of programs can be complicated, but they provide an excellent opportunity for fossil fuel retailers to reduce the carbon intensity of the fuels they sell and increase their margins while doing so.
