After eight and a half years of the most rewarding experience of my professional life, the end of November will bring the close of my tenure at GTM and GTM Research.

I couldn’t be more proud of our team and our work, and I’m beyond excited to see what comes next. I’ll continue playing a part in GTM’s future -- I’ll remain a senior adviser to both GTM and Wood Mackenzie's Power & Renewables practice, and I'll keep co-hosting The Interchange podcast until someone pries the mic from my cold, dead hands.

In the meantime, I’m feeling nostalgic about how much the electricity market has changed since I joined GTM in early 2009. Operatingsolarcapacity in the U.S., for instance, has grown by a factor of 37(!). And now renewables often rank as the cheapest source of new generation capacity.
