Solar plane's arrival highlights UAE's clean-energy push 26.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates • The United Arab Emirates might not seem like an obvious spot to begin and end a globe-spanning flight promoting renewable energy. It is OPEC’s fourth biggest oil producer, after all, where gas guzzlers rule the road and the air conditioning is always on — not just at its indoor ski slope. Its oil output and fossil fuel-burning airlines are growing, and its per-capita carbon emissions rank among the world’s highest. Yet this federation of sheikhdoms on the Persia...

Utahns' enthusiastic embrace of solar power could cost the state $42M 22.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Nearly 8,000 Utahns have made a personal investment in the power of the sun this year, and the state expects thousands more to join them — making 2016 the biggest year for solar by far. But this news isn’t all sunny — processing solar tax credits could cost the state $42 million, and industry leaders say residents rushing to jump on the solar bandwagon could fall prey to unscrupulous deals. About 7,700 Utah residents signed up for Rocky Mountain Power’s net metering program between January and ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Op-ed: Hatch questions program that helps fuel Utah's solar boom 17.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
If a government initiative helped Utah to launch thousands of new jobs, attract millions of dollars in new business and become a national leader in a fast-growing industry — all in less than seven years — would you consider it a success? In fact, that’s exactly what has happened since the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act’s “green energy” stimulus grants helped kick-start Utah’s unprecedented growth in solar energy, with additional state tax credits and business incentives causing tha...

World Bank president expresses concern over Brexit 1.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
New Delhi • The World Bank president said Thursday that India had shown resilience in the situation created by Britain’s decision to exit from the European Union, but it will be affected “if there were more events creating more uncertainty.” Jim Yong Kim told reporters that the British decision has caused a shortage of capital for developing nations like India and money was flowing into safe havens like gold and U.S. treasury bills. Urging countries to embrace multilateralism and multilateral in... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

'Tesla Solar' wants to be Apple store for electricity 30.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Tesla Motors Inc.’s bid to buy the biggest U.S. rooftop solar installer has little to do with selling cars. Rather, it’s about solving two of the biggest problems standing in the way of the next solar boom. And perhaps a good deal more. When Chief Executive Elon Musk came out last week with his $2.86 billion plan to acquire SolarCity Inc., it was almost universally derided as a risky financial move that threatens to derail the electric car maker at its most critical moment. That’s undoubtedly tr...

Utah's needs ignored in California's outline for managing regional power grid, leaders say 14.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
A proposal from California that would guarantee individual states’ authority over energy policy hasn’t assuaged Utah leaders’ concerns about the plan to centralize the management of the Western U.S. electrical grid. According to the document, the grid’s managers would be bound by legal provisions that would “preserve state authority over matters currently regulated by the states themselves” and be barred from “adopting any policy that would diminish or impair state or local authority in those ar... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
