As the energy transition accelerates, an unprecedented number of clean energy projects have applied to connect to the power grid. FERC has opened a rulemaking to revamp the grid connection process.
In this webinar, Adrienne Downey with offshore wind project developer Hexicon Group will present the current state of floating offshore wind technology around the world and will chat with California Energy Commissioner Kourtney Vaccaro about the potential of floating offshore wind in the US and the obstacles to its adoption.
The building sector is a substantial contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. This webinar will highlight two state initiatives that are making a big impact in decarbonizing this sector: California’s 2022 Building Energy Efficiency Standards and New York’s Clean Energy Initiative.
This webinar will highlight two impressive and impactful state programs that are accelerating the development of clean energy while increasing public participation in the process: The CT Green Bank’s Green Liberty Bonds program, and Washington’s 2021 State Energy Strategy.
A variety of studies and disparate datasets track state energy storage polices, but these datasets do not cover all behind-the-meter (BTM) related storage policy. Moreover, these databases do not align these policies with the policy stacking framework. Thus, it is unclear what BTM storage policies are adopted across the country, what should comprise a complete…
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.
Learn how the Bad River Band assembled the team necessary to successfully navigate the federal Department of Energy grant process, overcame obstacles created by COVID-19, and built the Ishkonige Nawadide Solar Microgrid Project. The microgrid was designed to withstand disasters worse than the floods in 2016, and it provides critical power to the wastewater treatment plant, the Health and Wellness Center, and an Administration Building.
This Clean Energy Group webinar will introduce the Resilience Hub concept, explain how the development of Hubs can strengthen local resilience in the face of climate impacts, and discuss the process of conceptualizing and implementing a community Resilience Hub, with a focus on energy resilience measures.
Speakers from Customized Energy Solutions and the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center will discuss storage-as-wires solutions and successful deployments.
In 2015, Connecticut Green Bank, in partnership with the solar and energy efficiency company PosiGen, launched a solar leasing program that targets low- and moderate-income homeowners. Berkeley Lab’s study shows that the program has successfully reached underserved customers and has reasonable repayment rates given the credit characteristics of the participants.
There are now over 40 programs in the US that promote solar adoption by low- and moderate-income households. New research from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory takes a look at how they are being evaluated, highlighting trends among evaluation methods, metrics tracked, and best practices employed.
NREL’s Jeff Cook will provide an update on the development of the Solar Automated Permit Processing Platform Plus (SolarAPP+), an online solar permitting platform, and Solar Time-based Residential Analytics and Cycle time Estimator (Solar TRACE), a tool designed to help identify permitting, inspection and interconnection cycle times and related requirements nationwide.
Manufactured homes, formerly referred to as mobile homes, comprise over 6 percent of America’s housing stock and represent an even larger share of housing for low- and moderate-income (LMI) households. CESA’s new report explores the opportunities and challenges for bringing the benefits of solar to manufactured housing residents in fourteen states.
As part of CESA’s Scaling Up Solar for Under-Resourced Communities Project, Clean Energy Group conducted a survey of municipalities, community organizations, affordable housing developers, and technical service providers who have been involved in developing solar+storage projects. This webinar will focus on highlights of the survey.
A new report from the PEAK Coalition lays out a plan to reliably replace all fossil-fuel peaker power plants in New York City with a mix of renewable energy, storage and demand side energy management solutions by 2030.
This webinar will provide background on the Maryland energy storage pilot program, explore the dynamics of the proposed energy storage projects and business models, and explain both potential revenue streams and operational challenges for storage resources in PJM.
