In furtherance of its commitment to clean energy, India has undertaken the largest renewable energy capacity expansion programme in the world through initiation of various schemes, programmes and policy measures during the last 2 years.
According to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (“MNRE”), a capacity addition of 14.30 GW of renewable energy was reported during the last 2½ years under grid connected systems – 5.8 GW from solar, 7.04 GW from wind, 0.53 GW from (small) hydro and 0.93 GW from bio-power. A total of 7.52 GW of grid-connected power generation capacity from renewable energy sources has been added so far this year (January 2016 to October 2016) as stated below:

We’re at the end of another week here in August, and hopefully everyone battling this oppressive heat & humidity is doing so successfully! This runner has her fingers crossed that we’re seeing the last of the weather that makes outdoor runs so challenging!
But what is not challenging (see what I did there?) is reading this week’s top posts from ILNToday – we’ve got a great roundup for you from around the world. So grab your coffee and take a read!

Happy Friday from a very snowy south Jersey, where I am one happy camper. Other grouchy people may not like winter, but I love the snow, which we’ve seen very little of this year (minus our big blizzard, of course), so I’m quite pleased to see some of the fluffy stuff again before I’m sure it will warm up and melt once more. And I say that despite being solely responsible for the shoveling around here.
This weekend is, of course, also about the Superbowl, or for those of us without a team in the fight, the Superbowl commercials. You know what that means – next week starts my annual recap of the good, the bad and the ugly of this year’s crop of commercials, and just as with every other year, I haven’t cheated and watched any sneak peeks. So I can’t wait for the new ad debuts! (I know, I’m a terribly nerdy legal marketer, and I heartily embrace that)

And just like that, we’re at the end of January! How did everyone do with their LinkedIn Challenge? As a result of my efforts, I reached out to 34 people who are not regular contacts of mine on LinkedIn, and ended up having conversations with seven of them. One of those led to my introducing that contact to two of the lawyers in my Network who may be good referral sources for him, and another may be an opportunity for me to showcase a blog post for the connection on our website. It’s become such a regular habit now that although I don’t think I’ll be as committed to it on a regular basis, I can see myself using anniversaries, birthdays and new jobs as an opportunity to reach out by email to connect, rather than simply “liking” someone’s updates from now on – just a little bit of extra effort has provided a much richer experience on LinkedIn!

It’s our first roundup of the year, thanks to my travel schedule and the holidays – coming to you from rainy, but balmy (for a change) Chicago! I’m getting ready to head into judging weekend for the Legal Marketing Association’s Your Honor Awards, considered to be the “Oscars” of legal marketing, and it’s an intense process by which we weed out who is doing some of the best, most brilliant, work in our industry.

It’s just about summertime here in the northeast, and it’s already hot and humid today! But before you head out for the weekend and enjoy some time on the beach, make sure to check out these top posts from this week on ILNToday!

It’s a hot, hazy and humid summer day here in the northeast, but it’s Friday AND we’re launching our Corporate Group’s International Guide: Establishing A Business Entity In!

It’s hard to believe that it’s June already, and you know what that means – just a few short weeks until we’re officially halfway through the year. Are you all keeping on track with your business development and marketing plans for 2015? If not, it’s time to get them off the shelves and dust them off to hit the ground running for the rest of the year. We’ve got plenty of time left to make this year count.
In the meantime, the lawyers in our Network continue to be busily producing some excellent content, which I’m sharing with you in this week’s roundup!

It’s a beautiful day here in south Jersey, with the sun shining! We’ve had a lot of content come through ILNToday this week, so without further ado, here are the top posts from this week!
- Proposed HIPAA Rule to Enhance Criminal Background Check System from Ogden Murphy Wallace: OMW’s Jefferson Lin discusses a proposed HIPAA rule that will allow certain covered entities to disclose specific information about the mental health of a person subject to a National Instant Criminal Background Check – the purpose of the rule is to aid in keeping guns out of the hands of those who are potentially dangerous. It’s a complicated issue, so worth a further read!
- Fired Employee Entitled to Both Damages and Full Pension Benefits from Fogler Rubinoff: Blair Bowen looks at the recent case of Richard Waterman, who was terminated after 42 years with IBM, and the resulting judgment.

I’m still having some trouble wrapping my brain around the fact that we’re already in 2014, but it’s true – we’re 10 days in to the new year already! I hope everyone has their business development plans in hand and has made some resolutions for the new year in business that you’re already executing!
We’ve got some great content in our roundup for you this week:
- GST going concern exemption to be abolished from Gadens Lawyers (Australia): No one says it better than Gadens – “The Abbott Government has announced it will adopt a controversial measure proposed (but not implemented) by the former Rudd Government to replace the GST-free going concern and farm land exemptions with a new ‘reverse charge’ mechanism.
