    INDUSTRY HIGHLIGHTS


    Why the utility transformation will require vision, planning, and new revenue models
    Utility Dive
    Everything old is new again. Or so goes the song — and the utility industry, according to Dean Oskvig, the President and CEO of Black & Veatch's energy practice. "In a way, what we're evolving to is where we started out, 100 or 110 years ago," Oskvig said. "The U.S. electric system then was a collection of individual generators, and they weren't connected very well. It was chaos."

    New lawsuit's goal: Secure right-leaning judicial panel
    E & E Publishing
    The recent bid by 15 states asking a federal court to block U.S. EPA's landmark Clean Power Plan contained little new information about their objections to the rule. But it did illuminate a key aspect of their legal strategy: retaining the same three Republican-appointed judges who considered an earlier, premature challenge to the regulations before they were finalized.

    Report: Minnesota already on pace to exceed Clean Power Plan goals
    Midwest Energy News
    A report released recently by the Union of Concerned Scientists shows Minnesota is already on pace to exceed carbon-reduction goals by 2022 and 2030 as part of the requirements in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s final Clean Power Plan rules. Most Midwest states — including Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Illinois and Missouri — are on track to meet at least half of the emission-reduction benchmarks by 2022, the start date for initial compliance, according to the report.

    Barack Obama's quiet war on oil
    Politico
    President Barack Obama’s enemies have long accused him of waging a “war on coal.” But a very different war on oil and gas is coming next. The newest phase of Obama’s environmental agenda has the oil and natural gas industry in its crosshairs, with plans to curb greenhouse gas pollution from rigs and refineries, tighten oversight of drilling on public lands and impose a strict ozone limit that industry lobbyists slam as “the most expensive regulation ever.”
