Good morning from Las Vegas and welcome to a special guest issue of Generate. I'll be interviewing former Energy secretary Ernest Moniz on stage today at noon PDT as part of the National Clean Energy Summit. Watch the livestream here.

I also have a piece today, chock full of telling graphics, showing China's dominance in the clean energy race. Then Axios' Ben Geman will bring you the rest of the energy news you need to know. Let's get to it!
