Webinar – Clean Power Plan: Interactions and Implications for Renewable Energy Markets

Thursday, November 19, 2015 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

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 Center for Resource Solutions (CRS), Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA), and Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP) teamed up for a webinar to answer these questions and discuss:

  • Emissions allowances and emission rate credits;
  • Potential interactions with renewable energy certificates (RECs) from voluntary and compliance markets;
  • Potential impacts on renewable portfolio standard (RPS) markets and policies; and
  • How RPS programs can help states meet their emission reduction goals.

Panelists:

  • Ed Holt, President, Ed Holt & Associates
  • David Farnsworth, Senior Associate, RAP
  • Todd Jones, Senior Manager, Policy and Climate Change Programs, CRS
