TenneT Unable to Complete German Offshore Transmission Project Under Current Regulations, Requests Extension

Maybe transmission operator TenneT should have thought twice about acquiring the northern German high-voltage grid from E.ON and accepting responsibility to build underwater links to offshore wind farms in the North Sea. The Dutch-German company has taken on a huge project that it now says it can't manage as planned.

Avoiding Explosive Consequences: Five Lessons from the Offshore Wind Sector

The emergence of a U.S. offshore wind sector presents a great opportunity for would-be project developers looking to exploit 4,000 GW of generation potential off the East and West coasts and in the Gulf of Mexico.

The EU did more than just about anyone else at the recent UN climate summit in Doha to make progress on an array of issues that could slow global warming. But this praise is consciously faint.

Coalition Says U.S. Standard for Home Furnaces is a ‘Turkey’

A coalition of consumer, energy, and environmental organizations criticized the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for what they see as weak home furnace and boiler energy efficiency standards that have been announced.

Protecting Workers and Communities During the Clean Energy Transition

Protecting Workers and Communities During the Clean Energy Transition

When I worked at the New York Attorney General's Office, we sued coal-fired power plants because their air pollution was making people sick.
