Trump's Impact on Clean-Energy Businesses

In between those announcements, Donald Trump was elected president, in part by calling climate change a hoax and vowing to gut most of Obama's clean-energy policies and revive coal mining.

Fourth, nations across the globe are implementing the climate commitments they made in Paris, and the USA clean energy industry wants a piece of this massive economic pie.

But a major energy transition is already well under way in Minnesota.

"The deals let companies hedge exposure to volatile natural gas and coal prices, which have historically determined wholesale power prices in the U.S. As wind and solar get cheaper, companies are able to lock in renewable power for less than the average wholesale power price", Swami Venkataraman, senior vice president at Moody's Investors Service, recently explained to Bloomberg Businessweek.

Solar panels stretch across a field at the North Star solar facility just outside of North Branch, Minn. on October 19, 2016. "They have ambitious targets to reduce Carbon dioxide emissions and increase renewable energy usage". Growth in energy generation from renewables is comparable under the scenarios in the early years through 2020, but it significantly slows thereafter in scenarios with no CPP. He also signed a law in 2007 setting greenhouse gas emission goals.

The EU's current target for renewable energy production is 27%.

No one in custody following shooting inside NY mall
New York State Police and sheriff's office say no one is in custody as of yet, and there have been no reports of any injuries. Some very tense moments for shoppers at Crossgates Mall in Albany as shots were fired inside the shopping center.

"It is important to remember that not all renewable energy companies are exposed to the US market and there are still significant opportunities elsewhere", said Charlie Thomas, manager of the Jupiter Ecology Fund.

Trump has said he wants to boost the USA coal, oil and shale industries and has threatened to leave a global climate deal called the Paris Agreement, which aims to phase out net greenhouse gas emissions by the second half of the century.

Raj Prabhu, CEO of the Mercom Capital Group, a clean energy research firm, said that the Obama administration's Clean Power Plan (CPP) might be the first casualty. It's a policy the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has been implementing to reduce carbon emissions from power plants. Would Mr. Trump put these good jobs in jeopardy?

Distributed generation of solar energy has nearly doubled in the past two years, with businesses citing the ITC as a major driver in their success.

Mexican Leader Hopes for 'Beneficial' Bilateral Cooperation With US Under Trump
Security analyst Raul Benitez said U.S. -Mexico security cooperation was not a campaign topic so it is unclear what Trump thinks. Both Moody's and Standard & Poor's rating agencies put Mexico's credit rating on a negative view earlier this year.

Due to regulations, coal-fired power plants can not be built without carbon capture and storage technologies, which removes about 30% of waste carbon dioxide. John Marty, D-Roseville, who has been a leader in energy issues at the State Capitol. Thus, should support for the further proliferation of solar in the USA fall, ultimately lowering the cost of energy in the U.S., while also ushering in an economic advantage vis-à-vis lower electricity prices for the scores of companies that produce domestically, we believe contagion would spread.
