Energy modeling—using computer software and mathematical equations to simulate the operation and growth of energy systems—can be a powerful tool for state decarbonization planning. But because modeling can be costly and the results can be prone to misinterpretation, models need to be used carefully.
This report highlights best practices, identifies barriers, and underscores the urgent need to expand state energy storage policymaking to support decarbonization in the US.
This report outlines how different states view the equity implications of climate impacts, and what they are proposing for mitigation solutions, planning processes, and implementation processes. It identifies common themes and best practices, and it presents a selection of relevant case studies and examples.
CESA has compiled a searchable list of clean energy technical assistance opportunities available to states. The list is available as an interactive table or downloadable excel document, and it will be regularly updated when new opportunities become available to states.
CESA submitted comments to the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service pertaining to implementing the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, and the role of state energy agencies in helping Treasury define and implement the IRA guidelines from Treasury.
This report identifies, collects, and summarizes all the equity-related provisions that have been included in the legislation and executive orders that have established 100% clean energy goals in 20 states and the District of Columbia.
CESA filed comments with FERC related to the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Docket No. RM22-14-000, called “Improvements to Generator Interconnection Procedures and Agreements.”
CESA filed comments with FERC related to the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Docket No. RM21-17-000, called “Building for the Future Through Electric Regional Transmission Planning and Cost Allocation and Generator Interconnection.”
Wholesale power markets are core to the functioning of the US electricity system and to the transition to 100% clean energy. Yet their design and operations can be difficult to influence, or even track, due to complicated structures and processes, extensive regulations, and highly technical jargon. This paper is intended to shed some light on how power markets are governed.
Comments on the Solar for All Competition of the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund
CESA submitted comments to the EPA regarding the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund Implementation Framework, authorized under the IRA. The comments chiefly pertain to the Solar for All Competition but also relate to some of the requirements set under the GGRF Framework applicable to all three competitions.
