A 'clean-energy champion?' Groups debate Rep. Mia Love's environmental stance 19.9.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
A wealthy conservative trying to push the Republican Party into fighting climate change has dubbed Rep. Mia Love a “clean-energy champion” and is spending at least $100,000 on digital ads supporting her re-election. The ClearPath Action Fund is a new group created by Jay Faison, a North Carolina entrepreneur, and his interest in Love is based partly on her votes during her first term and partly on what she may become if given more time in office. “Mia Love is a candidate who wants to do the righ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Clean energy won big. So where's the party? 17.9.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
To the skeptic, it may look like a con. The renewable-energy industry won lucrative U.S. subsidies and immediately snapped into inaction. Advocates had lobbied hard for the revival or extension of wind and solar federal tax credits that came in December. With victory in hand . . . very little followed. The industry’s windfall hasn’t spurred tremendous growth. In some cases, the renewal of the credits actually prompted a sudden slowdown in growth. Without the context, it kind of looks like they w...

After Brexit, sea wind undermine carbon prices 17.9.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
In shallow waters off the Dutch coast, you’ll soon see why the world’s biggest carbon market is struggling with slumping prices. Dong Energy plans to build two offshore wind parks there supplying as many as one million homes. The cost of the projects is about 60 percent cheaper than average rates estimated only a year ago by Bloomberg New Energy Finance in London. If they stick, the tariffs could be a “game changer” because they are showing lawmakers fighting climate change just how quickly ener...

Plan divvies up desert for conservation, energy 15.9.2016 Salt Lake Tribune

The plan drew sharp criticism fro...

In pursuing Facebook, Utah hopes for friend requests from other companies 21.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
West Jordan officials say it’s a one-time deal, a carrot too sweet to dangle twice: In return for building what might rank among the world’s largest data-center campuses, Facebook would receive up to $260 million worth of tax incentives, a commitment of nearly 5 million gallons of water per day, a reduced rate on renewable energy and yet-to-be-announced benefits from the state. Taxpayers, meanwhile, would eventually reap a 14,000-fold increase in property tax value from what is now a dryland far... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Editorial: Green River nuclear plant is looking like a tough sell 13.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Environmentalists this week dropped their legal battle to kill a nuclear power plant in southeastern Utah. They didn’t change their minds about the plant. They just think it will die without their help, and it’s hard to disagree. It was always a long shot when Blue Castle Holdings announced with some fanfare years ago that it had a plan for a fission plant near the Green River in Emery County. The plant would need a lot of water from the river for cooling, so Blue Castle negotiated to buy wate... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Frustrated by the slow pace of rural electrification in this East African country of 36 million peopl...
