Three Questions with Chris Kearns, Acting Commissioner of the Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources
In October 2023, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to create a pathway toward the nation’s first multi-state offshore wind power procurement solicitation. The MOU allows developers to submit bids to the three states at once, which could potentially reduce costs for ratepayers, diversify the region’s energy portfolio and expand…
The renewable portfolio standard (RPS) has become the most important policy mechanism for advancing renewable energy in the United States.
Last week, the Manhattan Institute issued a report that pretends to be a serious analysis of the impact of renewable energy on electricity prices.
2011 was a tough year for small wind incentive programs. Over the past 12 months, California, Oregon, New Jersey, Wisconsin, and Minnesota all experienced some kind of suspension or significant reduction of their incentives for wind turbines.
These are tough times for the dream of clean energy and green jobs.
The small and mid-scale wind industry is in a unique place in its development: it’s past the stage of an emerging market, but not-yet-fully fledged. And as many states have been discovering, this phase of the industry is full of growing pains.
On Monday, August 15th, representatives from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, UMass Dartmouth, Massachusetts senate and the New England Marine Renewable Energy Center, marked the completion of the state’s first in-ocean tidal turbine test.
Last year, CESA gave Energy Trust of Oregon a 2010 State Leadership in Clean Energy (or SLICE) Award for its Solarize Portland program.
Supermarkets are turning out to be an important early market for stationary fuel cells.
Clean energy jobs are growing much faster than the rest of the economy; state policies are at the center of that growth
Last week, our friends at the Brookings Institution Metropolitan Policy Program released an important report assessing the size and growth of the clean economy, “Sizing the Clean Economy: A National and Regional Green Jobs Assessment.”
For the last decade, clean energy projects like wind, solar, and biomass have proliferated across the United States.
