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)

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
