Capitol Hill gets greener

Hopes are high amongst clean energy advocates on Capitol Hill with a recent jump in the number of politicians who are members of renewables caucuses in both houses of the US Congress. On February 9, the US Senate's Renewables & Energy Efficiency Caucus was relaunched. Founded almost two years ago, its membership has climbed to 22, almost one quarter of the 100 US Senators and a record membership. A similar trend is discernible in the House of Representatives, where the Renewables Caucus is now 140-strong, compared with a dozen or so fewer at the end of last year's legislative session. Almost one-third of the 435 members of the House have now joined the group.
