Revisiting and updating my contributions to SoutheastEnergyNews.com

After co-founding Southeast Energy News in 2015 with Fresh-Energy.org powered by seed money from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation we begin aggregating and curating relevant news about the transition to cleaner energy in our 12-state Southeast U.S.

A year later, with support from additional funders, we began adding our own coverage

That footprint extends from Virginia, through the Carolinas, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Kentucky and West Virginia.

We add value by identifying looming important energy developments before they start generating headline news, as well as, looking back and assessing what news reports and trending developments need to be updated. We avoid most spot-news developments that are likely to be covered by our esteemed colleagues at daily newspapers, credible blogs and non-profits.

We do not advocate for or against any form of energy. Our work focuses as much on cleaner energy opportunities as it does on challenges and legacies left by the deployment of fossil fuels. In the middle of it all, is the increasingly murky future for nuclear energy. At this writing two reactors each in Georgia and South Carolina are under construction and struggling with cost overruns, project delays and the bankruptcy of their main contractor, Westinghouse.

I welcome any ideas you care to share, ideally with enough information and sources for me to pursue them. Feel free to comment on my posts even if they may be a few months old.
