    QUICK NEWS, January 24: Trump White House Rewrites The U.S. Climate Message; Defense Dept. Advances Microgrid Trials; NatGas Price On The Rise

    Trump White House Rewrites The U.S. Climate Message What Climate Change? Trump's White House Touts Energy Plans On Web

    Paul Raeburn, January 22, 2017 (Newsweek)

    “…Minutes after the inauguration of Donald J. Trump, [the Obama White House web page on its significant climate fight and New Energy achievenments was] replaced with [the An America First Energy Plan page and the only mention of climate change was] to dismiss any concern…There are no superscripts, no footnotes…[but proclaims that the] Trump Administration ‘is committed to energy policies that lower costs for hardworking Americans and maximize the use of American resources, freeing us from dependence on foreign oil’ despite the fact that] imported oil use has declined every year since Obama took office and, in] 2010, for the first time, the U.S. imported less that 50 percent of the oil it consumes. And America is producing more oil than at any time in the last eight years…[The biggest missing piece on the new webpage is a] plan to address climate change…” click here for more

    Defense Dept. Advances Microgrid Trials Military Microgrids Steeply Cut Energy Costs Says New Study

    Elisa Wood, January 19, 2017 (Microgrid Knowledge)

    “Military microgrids open the door to steep electricity cost cuts at U.S. bases, and even create free energy in some cases, [according to Power Begins at Home: Assured Energy for U.S. Military Bases from Pew Charitable Trusts]...Increasingly the conversation [at DoD is moving beyond protection from storms and other natural grid power interruptions to] potential cyberattacks…[The new study focuses on the economics of military microgrids and shows a] base can save up to $20 million by replacing stand-alone generators with a microgrid…The study compares the cost of stand-alone diesel generators with microgrids powered by diesel or a combination of diesel and natural gas…[The study did not consider non-monetary advantages of military microgrids or efficiencies if a microgrid includes combined heat and power or sophisticated energy management techniques and renewable energy] with advanced microgrid controllers…” click here for more

    NatGas Price On The Rise Natural gas prices in 2017 and 2018 are expected to be higher than last year

    Tim Hess, January 23, 2017 (U.S. Energy Information Administration)

    “…[The Henry Hub natural gas spot price will] average $3.55 per million British thermal units (MMBtu) in 2017 and $3.73/MMBtu in 2018, both higher than the 2016 average of $2.51/MMBtu, [according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA)]…Higher prices in 2017 and 2018 reflect natural gas consumption and exports exceeding supply and imports, leading to lower average inventory levels…In 2016, the annual average Henry Hub natural gas price was the lowest since 1999 as a result of a very mild winter that left natural gas inventories at a record high for the end of March…However, high natural gas use for electricity generation during the summer and declining production contributed to Henry Hub natural gas prices rising from an average of $2.00/MMBtu in the first quarter of 2016 to an average of $2.88/MMBtu in the third quarter of 2016. Cold weather across much of the northern United States in mid-December led to an increase in demand for space heating (much of which is provided by natural gas)…[and] spot prices increased to a monthly average of $3.59/MMBtu in December…In 2017, Henry Hub prices are expected to remain near the levels in December 2016…” click here for more
