RPS Compliance Data Collection and Reporting Practices: Supporting Renewable Energy Policy Implementation through Information Sharing
Sustainable Energy Advantage
The topic of RPS data management is often overlooked. To enable a closer examination of this important topic, the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) conducted a survey of RPS program administrators to gain insight into the collection, use, and reporting of RPS compliance data. Based on the responses, the consulting firm Sustainable Energy Advantage (SEA) then wrote a report summarizing the various states’ collection and reporting practices. The report also identifies some best practices and includes SEA’s recommendations for effective use of RPS compliance data and reports. Information is included on all states with established RPSs.
