Webinar & Events - Renewable Portfolio Standards
NREL has released a new report exploring the likely impacts of recently extended federal tax credits on the deployment of renewable generation and on CO2 emissions. CESA is hosting a webinar with the report’s lead author, Trieu Mai, to discuss the report’s findings.
This webinar will look at two states that last year took important actions to advance renewable energy. Program developers and managers from Hawaii and Vermont will present.
This webinar will explore the role and treatment of hydropower in RPSs across the country.
This webinar will feature a wide-ranging presentation on the overall status of RPSs around the country and observations about general trends.
Do you know how compliance with EPA’s Clean Power Plan (CPP) will affect your region’s voluntary and regulatory renewable energy markets? Do you know how carbon trading under mass-based and rate-based programs can be coordinated with existing REC trading?
The 2015 National Summit on RPS was hosted by the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA), the Energy Foundation, and the U.S. Department of Energy.The Summit took place on Thursday, November 5th and Friday, November 6th.
The federal investment tax credit (ITC) is currently scheduled to be reduced in 2017 to 10% of project costs for commercial solar systems. This reduction would have impacts for compliance with solar carve-outs in various state renewable portfolio standards.
The webinar will describe and demonstrate AVERT, a free, open-access tool that allows non-expert users to quantify displaced emissions of CO2, SO2, and NOX, and avoided generation mitigated by state or multi-state programs. Stakeholders and regulators can also use the tool to identify likely units and regions impacted by different efficiency or renewable energy programs.
The webinar will provide updates on the RPS programs and activities in Connecticut and Wisconsin. The focus will be on program elements and developments that may be of interest to other states.
New analysis from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) quantifies the extent to which RPSs were met with out-of-state renewable energy in 2012 and 2013. Jenny Heeter of NREL will describe and discuss these findings.
