Out with the old, in with the new

New year, new start? Some years, the energy sector has seemed more like second verse, same as the first. But in 2016, more changes are afoot, and maybe it’s just my West coast optimism, but I think they will be mostly positive. Too naïve you say? Think back to the beginning of last year. Would you have predicted solar at grid parity with fossil fuels anywhere? A multi-year tax deal where renewables were the winners? Any agreement at all at the Paris climate talks?

So for those of you, like me, returning to work a day late after the holiday break, I offer a view of what’s out for 2016 and what to keep an eye on as you navigate the new year in energy. And yes, you should watch Mr. Robot now.
