    INDUSTRY HIGHLIGHTS


    States consider defying Obama climate rule
    The Hill
    Governors of some conservative states are threatening to disregard President Obama’s signature climate rule for power plants, potentially creating a showdown with the federal government. Opponents of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) regulation hope that the decisions by the six governors could lead to a significant or complete destruction of the rule, thwarting one of Obama’s top legacy policies.

    Mexico's new oil era is here and economic legacy is at stake
    Bloomberg
    Mexico President Enrique Pena Nieto's credibility on law and order was damaged this weekend by the prison escape of the nation’s most famous drug trafficker. Now he’s about to be tested on his pledge to attract private investment to the flagging oil business and help revive the economy. On July 15, the government will hold the first in a series of petroleum auctions that will help open the energy industry, bringing in an estimated $62.5 billion by 2018 and increasing annual output by 500,000 barrels a day.

    The Senate Finance Committee is expected to consider a bill package including renewable energy tax credits, reports E&E Daily, and advocates are ramping up efforts to ensure they endure the fight.

    Making deregulation work: Developing a consumer-friendly energy market
    The Energy Collective
    The restructuring of energy markets in over twenty states since the 1990s has offered consumers with choices for their electricity generation services. The introduction of consumer choice should create an environment that is conducive for accountability and transparency in retail rates. However, in many states across the country, energy markets have not developed in ways that best serve the interests of consumers. In order to foster a truly competitive and transparent market, state regulators must play a more active role in protecting consumers’ best interests, and pushing markets in the right direction.
