Why are these billions in pipeline projects stalled?

Billions in pipeline projects stalledBillions of dollars’ worth of shovel-ready infrastructure projects have been held up by a bureaucratic morass that President Donald Trump helped to create.

Trump’s slowness to fill vacancies at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is one reason for a growing backlog of natural gas pipelines and a gas export terminal awaiting approval from the agency, which has been unable to conduct major business since February.

The waiting list has grown to at least $13 billion worth of projects expected to generate more than 23,000 construction jobs, according to a POLITICO analysis — largely in states Trump won in November.

Treasury fines ExxonMobil $2 million for violating Russia sanctions while Tillerson was CEO

Treasury fines Exxon Mobil for violating Russia sanctionsThe Treasury Department said Thursday it is fining Exxon Mobil Corp. $2 million for violating sanctions related to Russia in 2014, when Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was CEO of the company.

In May of that year, the presidents of Exxon Mobil's U.S. subsidiaries signed eight legal documents related to oil and gas projects in Russia with Igor Sechin, head of Russian oil giant Rosneft, the Treasury said. Sechin had personally been sanctioned by Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control following Russia's incursion into Ukraine.

Panda Power: China just built a solar farm shaped like a giant panda

The group announced last Friday that its Panda Power Plant was officially connected to the grid in Datong Shanxi, China. While a photo of the plant has been difficult to find, a past artist rendering shows panels in the shape of a bright-eyed, smiling Giant Panda. (Po, from Kung Fu Panda, is that you?)

The design of the plant was possible using black single crystalline silicon solar cells from a Chinese company and white thin-film solar cells supplied by First Solar in the U.S.

Wholesale energy prices dip below zero because of California’s solar power

Solar power in CaliforniaSolar power shines bright in California, and wholesale energy prices prove it. Last winter and early spring’s dependence on solar drove wholesale energy prices to negative prices, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

Solar power in the California Independent System Operator accounted for nearly 40% of net grid power for three hours on March 11, 2017, the administration reports —a major first.

These figures don’t translate for the consumer into retail prices, which are based on averages. But the move will likely cause energy companies to pay more attention to green energy options.
