The District of Columbia’s “Solar for All” program is an initiative with a goal to provide 100,000 low-to-moderate income families, with the benefits of locally generated clean energy.
In this webinar, members of the PEAK Coalition will detail the finding of their new report, “Dirty Energy, Big Money,” which exposes the environmental and economic harms that peaker power plants are inflicting on communities in New York City, and introduce measures the organizations are taking to replace peakers with renewables and battery storage.
According to a report to be released in early June from the University of California, Berkeley and GridLab, the United States can reliably deliver 90% clean, carbon-free electricity nationwide by 2035 using existing technology, without increasing consumer bills, and without the need for new fossil fuel plants.
In this webinar, guest speakers from the Energy Storage Association and Wood Mackenzie Power and Renewables discussed FERC 841 compliance progress among the nation’s ISOs and RTOs.
Oregon and Rhode Island have been working on a series of community outreach initiatives in order to create accessibility to solar within the low- and -moderate-income communities. These various initiatives provide useful templates for similar initiatives in other parts of the country.
This Clean Energy Group webinar highlights a recently installed solar PV and battery storage system (solar+storage) at one of the Energy Conservation and Management Division (ECMD) of New Mexico’s most remote offices, the State Forestry Division Cimarron District Office.
LBNL’s Galen Barbose reviewed key trends in state RPSs, including recent legislative revisions, key RPS policy design features, state RPSs’ compliance with interim targets, past and projected impacts on renewables development, and compliance costs.
In this webinar, guest speakers from NYSERDA discussed New York’s Energy Storage Roadmap to 1,500MW by 2025 and other energy storage policies and programs, including a new bridge incentive, soft cost reductions, and procurement targets.
CESA hosted the second in a two-part webinar series highlighting the role renewable heating and cooling campaigns play in decarbonizing buildings and in helping states meet their carbon reduction goals.
In April 2019, Maycroft Apartments became the first resiliency center in the District of Columbia fully powered by solar+storage. This webinar featured presentations by the project’s nonprofit developer, New Partners Community Solar, and energy consultant, Amidus Consulting.
This webinar featured CESA’s recent report, “Community Campaigns for Renewable Heating and Cooling Technologies: Four Case Studies,” and included speakers from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center and the City of Boulder, Colorado.
CESA Project Director Todd Olinsky-Paul reviewed the major policies adopted by leading states, discussed their strengths and weaknesses, and identified issues that should be addressed as states seek ways to support energy storage deployment and the development of markets for the services storage can provide.
