Trump Brings Koch Network’s Green-Energy Foes
from the Fringe to the Center of Power

When an obscure nonprofit group attacked one of Californias signature green-energy projects this summer  warning a congressional panel that the embrace of solar energy would lead to crippling hikes in electricity bills officials in the state shrugged off the testimony as noise from the fringe.

.

With Donald Trumps election, however, that group, the Institute for Energy Research, has moved suddenly from the fringe to the center of power. The president-elect has sent the groups president, a former Koch Industries lobbyist named Thomas Pyle, to the Energy Department to take charge of its transition.

.

For years, Pyle has led a coordinated national assault on renewable power. His groups and others that belong to the sprawling network bankrolled by Charles and David Koch, whose vast fortune stems originally from oil refining, pressure lawmakers to roll back policies that promote green power. The Koch network gave Pyles groups $3 million in 2015.

.

Now, in his role with the Trump transition, Pyles vision will shape the new direction of a federal agency that has been a crucial partner to California and like-minded states in their embrace of solar, wind and geothermal power.

.

Days before he was appointed to the role, Pyle, who did not respond to interview requests, tweeted that he expected the new administration would go beyond a mere rollback of President Obamas climate-change actions and bring about a reset of a generation of failed energy and environmental policies.

.

The impending shift would return California and other states to where they were more than a decade ago when they first began putting aggressive climate-change policies in place  swimming against the tide of a federal government antagonistic to their mission.

.

After years of growth, state programs to foster renewable energy are considerably more durable now and are positioned to withstand federal abandonment. But a Department of Energy guided by Koch principles could still create complications.

.

The industrial-scale desert solar operations that power tens of thousands of California homes, for example, were built with considerable financial backing from the Energy Department. The agencys national laboratories in the West have been incubators for next-generation renewable-energy technologies. The department has taken a lead in encouraging other states to pursue California-style programs.

.

It is inevitable with the Koch brothers already showing they have so much influence in this administration, that it will do everything in its power to inhibit the growth of renewables, said Bryan Miller, a lobbyist for green-energy firms.

.

Pyles influence reflects how wide the Koch networks reach has grown in Republican politics.
