Here are a few interesting articles I’ve read this week:

  • Bringing Renewable Energy to the Consumer (Green Chip Stocks): A new program to allow New Yorkers to “purchase” electricity from renewable sources.
  • Elusive Goal of Greening U.S. Energy (The New York Times): Not specific to New York, but an overall assessment of Obama’s promises of “green” job creation. It’s impressive that Germany still leads the way in solar installations, which was the case two years ago.
  • Bloomberg Drops an Effort to Cut Building Energy Use (The New York Times): Facing pressure from building owners, the mayor has rescinded a proposal to mandate energy efficiency measures in existing buildings.
  • Delaware energy: ‘Backbone’ power line pushed for wind farms (delawareonline): Ten  governors (including Gov. Paterson) from eastern states have signed a petition to install an underwater power line to connect offshore wind farms. Note that one of the companies advocating for the cable is preparing to bid on an NYC offshore project.
