POLITICO New York Energy: Statoil beats NYSERDA on wind, hydro in the Adirondacks

By David Giambusso and Marie J. French

Pro subscribers receive a premium version of this newsletter, which includes an enhanced look-ahead and robust analysis of the energy news driving the day, weekdays at 5:45 a.m. Contact us here to learn more.

STATOIL BEATS NYSERDA IN WIND AUCTION - POLITICO New York's Marie J. French: In a record-breaking auction of U.S. offshore wind development rights, a Norwegian oil and gas company has beaten out a New York state agency for the right to develop 80,000 acres off Long Island. The federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management last week declared Statoil, a state-owned company, to be the auction's provisional winner with a final bid of $42.5 million. That's more than the combined $15 million in revenue reported to the U.S. Treasury from previous lease auctions for a million acres for offshore wind development since 2013. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority came in second place. There were six bidders in total, three of which made it to the auction's final round of bidding. Statoil, which is developing multiple offshore wind projects in Europe, plans to develop 1 gigawatt of electricity from turbines 11 miles off Long Island. The high price reflects growing interest in offshore wind as development costs go down. The area is also close to high-cost, high-demand load centers in New York City and Long Island.

HYDRO IN THEM HILLS - Mary Esch of The Associated Press: "Some look at an abandoned, centuries-old iron mine in New York's Adirondacks and see a relic. An ambitious group of engineers sees the shafts in Mineville as a new way to provide a steady flow of electricity in a growing market for renewable energy."

DEER POLITICS - POLITICO's Marie J. French: Hunters killed more than 200,000 deer during last year's hunting season. State regulations require animal shelters to euthanize injured deer. A plan to control Staten Island's deer population using vasectomies had to get special state dispensation. But, in an apparent violation of state policy, the state made plans Friday to transport a single deer captured in Harlem to upstate New York, after the deer became a focus of public attention earlier this week.

--am New York wrote an elegy to the deer:


--A hotel developed by Donald Trump in Soho boasted of using wind energy through REC's in 2010.

--A Staten Island family hasn't had heat since Tuesday after National Grid shut off the gas due to a leaky pipe.

--St. Lawrence County businesses to lose discounted power under NYPA plan.

--Advocates want Cuomo to take action on environmental issues.

--Toxic gasoline additive found in Pine Barrens home.

--National Grid agrees to $500,000 settlement in Schenectady explosion.

--Rosendale offers free electric vehicle charging stations.

--Hoosick Falls may settle with Saint Gobain and Honeywell for $850,000.

VISUALIZING CLIMATE CHANGE: The New York Times has this NASA visualization of the factors contributing to climate change.

EXXON LOBBIED AGAINST RUSSIA SANCTIONS - POLITICO's Isaac Arnsdorf and Elana Schor: ExxonMobil successfully lobbied against a bill that would have made it harder for the next president to lift sanctions against Russia, clearing the way for the oil giant to restart a program worth billions of dollars if Donald Trump eases those restrictions as president. [federal PRO]

EXXON, PUTIN LIKELY TO COME UP IN TILLERSON HEARINGS - USA Today's Kevin McCoy: "Donald Trump isn't the only person headed to the U.S. government's executive branch saddled by legal issues. As the president-elect tapped ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson as the chief U.S. diplomat, a judge issued a ruling that could help decide the outcome of state investigations into the energy giant's statements on climate change and the firm's accounting disclosures."

LOCALS PUSH CLIMATE ACTION - The New York Times' Tatiana Schlossberg: "The incoming Trump administration appears determined to reverse much of what President Obama has tried to achieve on climate and environment policy. In position papers, agency questionnaires and the résumés of incoming senior officials, the direction is clear - an about-face from eight years of policies designed to reduce climate-altering emissions and address the effects of a warming planet."

W LOBBIES FOR TILLERSON - POLITICO's Burgess Everett: President George W. Bush didn't support Donald Trump in the election. But now that Trump has won the White House, the former president is helping him stock his cabinet. [federal PRO]

SCIENTISTS FEAR BACKLASH - Mashable's Maria Gallucci: "U.S. climate scientists say they worry the incoming Trump administration might do more than cut off their research funding. Some also fear they could receive personal attacks and death threats simply for doing their jobs."

SAN FRAN OYSTERS IN PERIL - The Los Angeles Times' Sean Greene: "Climate change could supercharge the powerful storms often hailed for bringing drought-busting rains to California."

OBAMA SIGNS WATER BILL WITH WARNING - POLITICO's Annie Snider: President Barack Obama has signed major water resources legislation into law - but with a sharp warning about endangered species protections in California.

REFINERS BRACE FOR REGS - Reuters' Jarret Renshaw: "U.S. refiners such as Valero Energy Corp and Marathon Petroleum Corp are bracing for stricter, smog-busting gasoline regulations set to hit in January, threatening more headwinds for an industry that has just endured its least profitable year since the shale boom started five years ago."

MAKING ROBOTS GREAT AGAIN - The Wall Street Journal's Andrew Tangel and Patrick McGroarty: "Factories were humming back to life even before a pledge to revitalize American manufacturing helped propel Donald Trump to the presidency. But jobs aren't returning in kind, a reality that will make it tough for Mr. Trump - or anyone - to significantly boost employment in the industrial heartland, as he has pledged to do."

POLAR BEAR REFUGEES - The New York Times' Erica Goode: "Come fall, polar bears are everywhere around (Kaktovik, Alaska), an Arctic village, dozing on sand spits, roughhousing in the shallows, padding down the beach with cubs in tow and attracting hundreds of tourists who travel long distances to see them."

CHINA FUELING PAKISTAN ENERGY BINGE - The Wall Street Journal's Saeed Shah: "When Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif came to office in 2013, rolling power outages across the country were plunging homes and businesses into darkness for up to 12 hours a day. Now the Pakistani leader is betting on a $21 billion Chinese-backed splurge on energy projects to boost the economy - and his re-election bid. More than 10,000 Chinese workers are now building at least 10 partly Beijing-financed energy projects across Pakistan that are set to grow the country's energy output by 60% within two years in the first major boost to supply in two decades."

CLIMATE PROOF SKI RESORT - Bloomberg's Tom Moroney: "Ski-resort executives tend to hate climate change, for obvious reasons. Then there's Les Otten. It's not that he's a fan, just that he's looking to turn the global-warming equation on its head. How so? By carving out slopes in a remote spot in northern New Hampshire that's frigid enough to out-snowpack rivals."


--Oil gained Friday as investors gained confidence that OPEC would make production cuts, The Wall Street Journal reports.

--Natural gas dropped as warmer weather appears on the horizon, the Journal reports.
