The Clean Energy States Alliance has launched the 100% Clean Energy Collaborative, a new initiative to provide critical information sharing and knowledge transfer among states that have established 100% clean energy goals for their electricity sectors. The rapid adoption of aggressive clean energy targets by states has been one of the most important energy and climate change policy developments of the past few years; 14 states plus the District of Columbia have now set such goals. The new Collaborative will create a forum for those states to cooperate on program development in order to speed progress towards achieving the states’ ambitious targets.
As the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) celebrates its 15th anniversary, Clean Energy Group looks back on the founding and early years of this important organization.
Many of the initiatives to move our energy system towards clean, renewable power emanate from the state and local levels.
Sterling, Massachusetts is demoing grid 2.0 with a multi-million-dollar investment that will pay for itself in just two years.
Now more than ever, policies and programs to promote sustainable energy resources will come from the state level.
As the federal government has retreated from aggressive support for renewable energy, the states are increasingly seen as the locus for innovation and action.
The little town of Sterling, MA is getting a lot of attention these days. Not only has the Sterling Municipal Light Department won awards for its new solar+storage microgrid, the town is getting visitors from Germany, Japan, Norway and many other countries.
Bringing the Benefits of Solar+Storage to Low-Income Communities: A Guide for States and Municipalities
The Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) has published a new report to help state and municipal energy agencies support the development of solar+storage in LMI communities.
CESA’s annual RPS Summit included over 100 people with a wide range of interests and perspectives on RPSs for an invigorating and educational two days of presentations, panels, group discussions and networking.
State governments have an increasingly important obligation and opportunity to present the public with sound, unbiased, user-friendly information on solar energy systems and financing options.
The town of Sterling, Massachusetts will celebrate its Municipal Light Department’s new energy storage system with a groundbreaking ceremony next week.
