Groene economie VS wint samen met Obama

AMSTERDAM – De groene economie in de VS heeft een steun in de rug gekregen met de verkiezingsoverwinning van de Amerikaanse presidentskandidaat Barack Obama.

De sector heeft de steun nodig. Bedrijven in zonne-energie vallen bij bosjes om en de windsector staat op instorten door het wegvallen van de PTC, de production tax credit, voor windenergie.

Obama heeft altijd groene energie gepromoot, terwijl de Republikeinse presidentskandidaat Mitt Romney een uitgesproken tegenstander van staatssteun voor groene energie is. Romney heeft eerder al gezegd dat het beleid van Obama alleen maar voor rampen heeft gezorgd.

Windsector in de VS

Romney wilde onder andere de PTC niet verlengen. “Als je dat soort steun terugtrekt gaan er banen verloren”, zo benadrukt een analist tegenover persbureau Bloomberg. “De windsector in de VS is substantieel gegroeid en veel daarvan is te danken aan de PTC.”

Eind dit jaar gaan er 18 miljard dollar aan energiegerelateerde subsidies vervallen. Als deze niet worden verlengd staat er een enorm banenverlies op het spel voor de sector.


Er werken nu ruim 180.000 Amerikanen in de schone-energiesector. Sinds 2009 is er 90 miljard dollar uitgegeven om deze sector in stand te houden.

Of onder andere de PTC wordt verlengd door de herverkiezing van Obama staat niet vast. Het Amerikaanse Congres moet hier ook goedkeuring aangeven waar de Republikeinen een meerderhei hebben in het Huis van Afgevaardigden.

    Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.
    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.

Her parents were the Swedish king Gustavus Adolphus and his German wife, Maria Eleonora, had already had two daughters—a stillborn princess in 1620, and then the first Princess Christina, who was born in 1623 and died the following year.3] Excited expectation surrounded Maria Eleonora’s third pregnancy in 1626. When the baby was born, it was first thought to be a boy as it was “hairy” and screamed “with a strong, hoarse voice.”she later wrote in her autobiography that, “Deep embarrassment spread among the women when they discovered their mistake.” The king, though, was very happy, stating, “She’ll be clever, she has made fools of us all!”6] From most accounts, Gustav Adolf appears to have been closely attached to his daughter, and she appears to have admired him greatly.
