    QUICK NEWS, June 16: SIERRA CLUB TARGETS HOUSE WIND ABSTAINERS; MINNESOTA’S BIG GAINS, LOW COSTS FROM CO2 CUTS; PLUG-IN LIGHT DUTY VHCL MRKT TO GROW

    SIERRA CLUB TARGETS HOUSE WIND ABSTAINERS Sierra Club targets 21 reps. for inaction on wind tax break

    Timothy Cama, June 12, 2014 (The Hill)

    “The Sierra Club is launching an advertising campaign to criticize 21 House Republicans who have not taken a position on renewing the wind energy production tax credit…[Each] is from a district or state with a major wind energy presence. They have not taken a position on whether to renew the incentive, which provides a tax break for wind energy produced…[T]he Sierra Club accuses each member of ‘doing nothing’ while his state’s ‘wind jobs blow away.’ …The tax break expired last year. The Senate Finance Committee voted to renew it, but the measure has not moved beyond that…” click here for more

    MINNESOTA’S BIG GAINS, LOW COSTS FROM CO2 CUTS Minnesota leads in reducing emissions

    Editorial, June 5, 2014 (Minneapolis Star-Tribune)

    “…[In Washington, when the proposed EPA rule] was announced, partisans rushed to their usual opposite corners…Minnesotans aren’t as easily divided. The proposal to reduce the nation’s carbon emissions from power plants by 30 percent from their 2005 levels was received in stride by this state’s utility companies and elected officials alike…[I]n 2007, they had agreed to reduce carbon emissions from Minnesota power generators by 25 percent from 2005 levels by 2025…By 2011, carbon dioxide emissions from Minnesota power plants had dropped 18 percent from their 2005 levels, even as the amount of electricity generated grew slightly…[And in 2012, 73 percent of Minnesotans believed] government ought to do more to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from power plants…[B]enefits Minnesota is already deriving [include]…More jobs and lower electricity costs…More Minnesota dollars are staying at home…[E]ased suffering from asthma and cardiovascular disease…[and] the reliability of electricity service does not suffer…” click here for more

    PLUG-IN LIGHT DUTY VHCL MRKT TO GROW Transportation Forecast: Light Duty Vehicles;Light Duty Stop-Start, Hybrid Electric, Plug-In Hybrid Electric, Battery Electric, Natural Gas, Fuel Cell, and Conventional Vehicles: Global Market Forecasts, 2014-2035

    2Q 2014 (Navigant Research)

    “…Over 1.2 billion vehicles are on the world’s roads today, and more than 95% belong to the [light duty vehicle (LDV)] segment. Of these vehicles, over 98% utilize a conventional internal combustion engine (ICE)…[A]doption of light duty (LD) alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) and fuel efficient technologies varies from region to region. Nonetheless, the increased adoption of drivetrain electrification and alternative fuels will have considerable impacts on the markets for LDVs, fuel infrastructure development, and energy demand. Navigant Research forecasts that global annual LDV sales will grow from nearly 84.1 million vehicles in 2014 to 126.9 million in 2035…” click here for more
