Welcome to the latest edition of the Energy Recap. As most of you know, since January of this year, the recap has been exploring the broad topic of renewable (aka alternative) energy and its various subtopics, such as solar, wind, ethanol, etc. Since it's been a few months, we wanted to get your feedback on how this focus has been going and if it's been helpful to you as readers.
Also, we're open to suggestions as to what topics you'd like the recap to cover going forward, whether related to renewable energy or any other energy-focused topic. Please let us know by leaving your thoughts in the comments section below.

Also, as many of you probably already know, the Seeking Alpha contributor marketplace debuted a few months ago. It's where top SA contributors - including several energy-focused authors - offer premium services to their followers. Sometimes, these authors provide a "sneak peak" of their analysis via free articles, such as "Russian Finance Ministry Sees $40 Crude At End Of OPEC Deal" from Boslego Risk Services, by Robert Boslego. And, if you're interested in becoming a marketplace author yourself, please see here.
