Colorado gives utilities one year to file transportation electrification plans
Colorado lawmakers have approved a measure requiring utilities to file transportation electrification plans by May 2020, a move clean energy advocates say will help address tailpipe emissions and an air pollution crisis in the state.
India is now investing more in solar than coal, but will its energy shift continue?
Inside Climate News
Renewable energy investments in India are outpacing spending on fossil fuel power generation, a sign that the world's second-most populous nation is making good on promises to shift its coal-heavy economy toward cleaner power.
WoodMac: Energy storage will move toward value stacking as industry matures
Value stacking, or revenue stacking, is expected to play an increasingly important role in energy storage's future, with industry stakeholders currently determining the best ways to monetize the various use-case applications of storage, a Wood Mackenzie energy storage analyst said Thursday.
Private partners to fund overdue energy upgrades at government facilities?
With an aging, and often obsolete energy infrastructure in government-owned facilities in New Jersey, lawmakers are pushing a bill that would allow the private sector to invest in energy-related projects at those facilities.
The bill (S-2958)/(A-4535) won approval from committees in both houses last week, a sign that legislators are warming to the idea of private investments funding long neglected projects because of increasing constraints on local and other government entities.
Forget the hype. Here's the state of clean energy in 6 charts.
The world isn’t putting its money where its mouth is to fight climate change.

FELJ Author Talk: FERC and Climate Change - June 24, 2019
FERC regulates significant swathes of the U.S. energy industry, including the wholesale sale and transmission of electricity, the transportation of oil and natural gas, and the permitting of several types of energy infrastructure projects. The authors -- Commissioner Richard Glick and Matthew Christiansen -- will discuss how, although it is not a climate regulator, FERC’s actions can nonetheless have substantial consequences for climate change. "FERC and Climate Change" was the lead item in Volume No. 1 of the Energy Law Journal's 40th volume.
