2017 National Summit on RPS

Tuesday, November 7, 2017 to Wednesday, November 8, 2017

The 2017 National Summit on Renewable Portfolio Standards took place on November 7-8 at the Westin Crystal City Hotel in Arlington, VA. Attending the annual RPS Summit is the best way to learn about developments and trends related to state RPSs and to network with many of the people from across the country who are most engaged in implementing and analyzing state RPSs.

The RPS Summit is hosted by the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA), with funding support from The Energy Foundation and the U.S. Department of Energy.

As in past years, the first day was open to all individuals interested in RPS issues; the second day was restricted to representatives of state governments and the federal government, so that they could share experiences, ideas, and common problems.

The Summit agenda is available here.

Guest speaker and participant bios are available here.
