A nearly daily update of energy-related news:

  • In preparation for the August recess, the Senate is scheduling to vote to convene a conference committee with the House in order to reach an agreement on the first major energy legislation since 2007.  Both the House and the Senate have passed energy bills in the past year, but now need to compromise on a final bill and have it pass both chambers of Congress before it can be sent to the President.
  • In India, forecasters have indicated that the country will have its first electricity surplus since 2008 because of transmission improvements and increased generation. According to the power ministry’s Central Electricity Authority, India could potentially have 1.1 percent extra electricity supplies by March 2017. The Central Electricity Authority also indicates that power demand is expected to grow 9 percent to 1.21 trillion kWh with supplies expected to rise 13 percent to 1.23 trillion kWh. India currently accounts for approximately 6 percent of global energy use.
