The 114th Congress got started this week and already Democrats and Republicans are butting heads on the issue of energy.

President Obama has threatened to veto a Republican bill to complete the Keystone XL pipeline. The question of ending a ban on U.S. oil exports is also on the table. Meanwhile, the renewable industry is also closely watching the fate of a federal tax credit that will expire at the end of the year.
