GreentechMedia reported on the congressional budget deal: "After a brief government shutdown, lawmakers passed a two-year budget deal that includes several key energy provisions...

"The bill includes credits for fuel cells, energy efficiency, microturbines, combined heat and power, carbon capture, and nuclear power. The latter would extend nuclear benefits past 2020, allowing the country’s last large-scale nuclear project under construction, an expansion at the Vogtle Electric Generating Plant in Georgia, to benefit.

"Clean energy advocates cheered the inclusion of the credits, even as lawmakers stared down the impending deadline...

“'This legislation provides the market certainty that will support investment in technologies like fuel cells, combined heat and power, energy efficiency, geothermal and advanced nuclear,' said Malcolm Woolf, Advanced Energy Economy’s senior vice president for policy."
