Local and National Updates
SEIA Vows Solar Will Lead Power Generation in This Decade
When energy and climate analysts look back on the 2020s, they will see a transformed energy landscape dominated by new solar energy generation, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) said in recognition of the start of the Solar+ Decade.

5 Energy Fights to Watch in 2020
With Congress in a partisan deadlock and the Trump administration rolling back environmental regulations, states are taking it upon themselves to tackle issues that could transform the electricity industry. Governors and lawmakers are moving to curb carbon emissions, expand renewable energy and storage, and look for ways to insulate their states from natural disasters fueled by climate change.

Solar + Wind + Storage Developers 'Gearing Up' as Hybrid Projects Edge to Market
Renewables are shedding their individual identities as wind and solar become clean energy MWhs. Though no full-scale hybrid projects co-locating both resources and energy storage have been built in the U.S. and few are online around the world, the U.S. renewables industries are taking on barriers such as interconnection, dispatch and compensation challenges, according to speakers at the 2019 American Wind Energy Association's Windpower conference.
