Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    72 GW Of New Energy Queued In Midwest

    From Minnesota to Louisiana, Renewables are Poised for Dramatic Growth, but…

    Sam Gomberg, February 27, 2019 (Union of Concerned Scientists)

    “…[The January 31 interconnection queue summary of the Mid-Continent Independent System Operator (MISO)] shows how wind and solar resources are dominating interconnection applications and foreshadowing a historic transition to clean energy resources…[T]here is 72,000 megawatts MW of new wind and solar resources in MISO’s interconnection queue, including more than 64,000 MW of new wind and solar projects…[That is essentially half of MISO’s summer peak of] about 130,000 MW…[from the Canadian border to the Gulf of Mexico and from Indiana and western Mississippi to] the Dakotas…

    There’s now almost 500 MW of battery storage projects in MISO’s interconnection queue – nearly all of it applying for interconnection in the past year…Even under ideal circumstances, some of this renewable energy wouldn’t ultimately make it onto the grid as projects withdraw for a variety of financial or technical reasons…[But MISO’s current processes for approving interconnection and allocating costs for new transmission aren’t helping…[If we don’t fix these problems,] it will severely constrain the ability for cost-effective renewable energy to come online. This will ultimately leave consumer benefits on the table – forcing them to pay more for a dirtier, less reliable electricity supply.” click here for more
