EIA: US wind will likely surpass hydro in 2019
The US is expected to source more of its total electricity from wind than hydropower for the first time in 2019, according to the Energy Information Administration. The report says the nation's installed wind capacity will likely reach 107 gigawatts by the end of 2019 and 114 GW by the following year.

N.Y. governor unveils new 100% by 2040 renewables goal
New York is working toward its own Green New Deal to source 100% of its electricity from renewables by 2040, says Gov. Andrew Cuomo, adding that the plan calls for 9 gigawatts of installed offshore wind capacity by 2035, instead of 2030's 2.4-GW target. "By more than tripling New York's already impressive offshore wind goal, Governor Cuomo has redefined offshore wind ambition nationwide," says Nancy Sopko, director of offshore wind policy and siting at the American Wind Energy Association.

How are utilities changing their electric generating mixes?
As the old saying goes, there's nothing permanent except change. This certainly holds true for the U.S. energy landscape. It is constantly evolving and renewable energy cost declines, technology advancements, and impending power plant retirements are driving the transition. How can we stay up-to-date on these changes? And more importantly, what role will wind energy play in the future energy mix? One effective method is tracking electric utilities' integrated resource plans (IRP), and the AWEA Utility IRP Database is here to help keep you in-the-know about important changes.

At his Senate confirmation hearing Wednesday, Andrew Wheeler, President Donald Trump's pick to lead the Environmental Protection Agency, renewed his commitment to deregulation and to adopting rules that give businesses and states "a climate of certainty." Wheeler, the EPA's current acting administrator, also said that the partial government shutdown may delay a new rule allowing year-round sales of higher-ethanol blends of gasoline, although he still expects to have it ready in time for the summer driving season.
