California’s pitch for 100 percent renewable energy is dead -- for now.

In the last week of its legislative session, California bills that laid out plans for a 100 percent renewable grid by 2045 and a remake of the state’s grid into a regional system floundered.

Legislators’ failure to move the bills through could add fuel to the larger 100 percent renewable energy debate, in which a variety of stakeholders have questioned the speed, pathway, feasibility and, ultimately, the need for converting to 100 percent. The struggle begs the question: if California can’t make 100 percent a reality, can other large

Makani, the airborne wind energy developer owned by Google’s parent, Alphabet, will start testing its fly-gen turbine-bearing plane concept in Hawaii next year.

The tests will give Makani its first experience of operating the M600 airborne wind energy prototype away from a desert environment and over inhabited space near towns and an airport, said Makani’s head, Dr. Fort Felker. He declined to say when in 2018 Makani would move to Hawaii.

Originally, the San Francisco-based company was reportedly planning a move to Kohala, a volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island, in 2015. “We’ll just stick with ‘next year,’” Felker told GTM. “We frequently find our job

In the first week of September, a U.S. House Energy and Commerce subcommittee held hearings questioning a 40-year-old law that forms the bedrock of competition in the electricity market.

Before the law took effect, electric utilities had a complete monopoly over electricity generation. In 1978, after some spectacular cost overruns by incumbent utilities, the passage of Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act (PURPA) introduced competition. 

Is a law passed in the era of shag carpeting and sideburns just as unfashionable in 2017?

If the list of testifiers was representative of utility customer interests, you might think so. But electricity markets are no less in need of
