2-And more on handouts abroad: “Given the Dutch government’s controversial decision to indefinitely delay its next offshore wind tender, many in the industry believed that what could be the country’s final offshore wind subsidy should have gone to a domestic company.”Recharge

3-No … really? “Complaints that the renewable energy industry creates relatively few jobs is probably accurate, say energy and economic experts.”National Journal
