Market forces are changing the US energy mix, giving way to innovation, clean energy investments and coal plant closures, writes Bill Ritter Jr., director of the Center for the New Energy Economy at Colorado State University. He argues that market forces -- not the Trump administration -- will continue to steer the energy market because utilities want low-cost electricity and investors and companies want market stability.

Training, infrastructure would attract wind to N.M., says senator
New Mexico is one of the fastest-growing states in the US in terms of wind energy and could attract additional investments by scaling up its job training programs and infrastructure, writes Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., citing an American Wind Energy Association report. "If we make the right choices now, we will attract billions of dollars of private investment to our state and create thousands of new jobs in our rural communities," he writes.

    Siemens Gamesa exec: Offshore wind ramps up as costs fall
    Cost declines are making offshore wind an attractive option for countries outside of Europe, with the next frontiers likely being Asia and the US, says Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy CEO of Offshore Andreas Nauen. Observers say Siemens Gamesa and Vestas are contributing to the decline by building new, larger turbines that produce more energy and drive down the cost of generation.

    Okla. lawmakers near deal on new wind tax
    The Oklahoma House of Representatives has reached a tentative deal on a bill that would levy a $1-per-megawatt-hour tax on new wind projects only. Wind Coalition Oklahoma Director Mark Yates praised the bill, adding, "The decision that was made today is good for the state of Oklahoma, and it's fair, and it's not punitive to the wind industry."

    Okla. wind tax would harm industry, says PNE Wind CEO
    The wind industry brings huge benefits to Oklahoma and a new tax on it would make the state an unattractive place to do business, costing the state both wind investments and the revenue they bring, writes PNE Wind Chairman and CEO Ron Flax-Davidson. PNE is expected to break ground on the Chilocco Wind Farm in Kay County this year.
