Utility net-zero carbon goals 'disingenuous,' says NextEra CEO

But the way NextEra's Chairman and CEO Jim Robo views such goals explains why the Florida energy giant has resisted jumping on the net-zero bandwagon: He thinks the targets are "disingenuous." "Right, go plant some trees and we get to net-zero, or we'll get to net-zero as long as the technology works for carbon capture," Robo said during S&P Global Sustainable 1's' Accelerating the Transition to Sustainability virtual conference on May 26. "But the reality is that carbon capture technology doesn't work and you're not going to come up with a magic small reactor that will be cheap enough."

The U.S. vs. Atlantic fisheries

The Atlantic coast contains some of the most productive fisheries in the world. BOEM is supposed to work with fisheries interests to ensure offshore wind development does not adversely affect habitat and the livelihood of fishermen. In fact, in December of last year, the Department of the Interior issued a detailed memo stating that the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act prohibits offshore wind approvals if a project would interfere with fishing. But just a few weeks ago, the administration reversed those findings.

Senate bill would up state's requirement for solar and wind energy

The bill would require not only a greater amount of alternative energy in Pennsylvania but also increase solar's footprint to 7.5% for in-state grid-scale solar and 2.5% for in-state distributed solar generation. It would also get the Public Utility Commission to study a state renewable energy storage program, which would allow for more resiliency during the night and when the wind isn't blowing. And it would also seek to limit the costs of electricity increasing.

Bill to ease approval of wind and solar farms flops, but debate rages on

The bill, hotly debated throughout the session, would have created some statewide regulations for wind and solar projects and provided some financial incentives from developers for counties that choose to give a green light to such projects. But tough opposition from representatives of local governments, as well as grassroots citizen groups, kept pushing the local control alarm that ultimately may have led to the bill’s demise.
