Speakers from CESA and Sandia will discuss the findings of a new report, “States Energy Storage Policy: Best Practices for Decarbonization.”
Energy modeling can be a powerful tool for state decarbonization planning, but it can also be costly and the results can be prone to misinterpretation. This webinar will provide advice on energy modeling and introduce resources useful to states embarking on decarbonization planning.
CESA’s annual members meeting will take place in May 2023 in Washington, DC. The event will emphasize networking and connections among states, and it will feature sessions on a wide range of topics.
As part of a new initiative from the US Department of Energy, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and CESA, CESA is co-hosting the first-ever national meeting to focus on how states and the federal government can work cooperatively to advance states’ efforts to decarbonize. The event will take place in Washington, DC.
This webinar will highlight efforts to develop mobile resilient energy systems that can be transported to neighborhoods where the power is out, to support medically vulnerable and electricity-dependent residents.
CESA Research Fellow Charles Hua will discuss the findings of CESA’s new report reviewing the equity and environmental justice components of state 100% clean energy plans. Dr. Tony Reames of the US Department of Energy will place the states’ energy equity activities into the context of federal environmental justice initiatives, including the Justice40 Initiative.
Panelists will share information about a community solar project being developed by Holy Cross Energy (HCE), a rural electric cooperative in Colorado, that will benefit manufactured homes residents, including information on how the project has come to be, the programs and incentives utilized to support the project, how newly available Inflation Reduction Act incentives are being used to expand the project, how this project could be replicated and scaled up to benefit more mobile home residents throughout HCE’s service area, and more.
A new report prepared by Applied Economics Clinic for the Clean Energy States Alliance provides a framework for state energy agencies contemplating a benefit-cost analysis for battery storage.
CESA’s new report details how states with offshore wind potential have begun to include and operationalize principles of equity in their offshore wind policies and related economic development programs. Report authors will be joined by representatives from NY, CT and MA to discuss how their states are incorporating equity into their offshore wind programs.
As part of their effort to ensure that community solar implementation can serve all communities, Energy Allies has been pioneering research into contracts to gain perspective on how the public views community solar product offerings.
Our annual lookback at the year in energy storage covers advances in the U.S. market, including deployment trends, policy and regulatory updates; the state of the art in energy storage technologies; and the market outlook for the coming years.
This webinar will dig into what the IRA means for energy storage in the US, what types of activity will be eligible for funding, and how the new IRA funding mechanisms fit together with the previously announced IIJA funding.
This Clean Energy Group webinar will provide an overview of some environmental justice concerns that should be considered when evaluating any hydrogen proposal. Speakers from Western Environmental Law Center and Ohio River Valley Institute will present on their work pushing back against misinformed hydrogen proposals in the Ohio River Valley and New Mexico in coalition with local communities and environmental justice advocates.
This webinar will highlight two well-designed and impactful programs that are supporting the development of solar+storage projects in their state: the Maryland Energy Administration’s Resilient Maryland / Resiliency Hubs Grant Program, and the Oregon Department of Energy’s Solar+Storage Rebate Program.
