Thursday, May 14, 2015 at 10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM ET. The United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) recent Clean Power Plan proposal contemplates having state clean energy programs—including those related to renewable energy—contribute to compliance with state emission performance standards. A key challenge for state regulators could be tracking the results of renewable energy programs, which can occur inside and outside of state boundaries. Renewable energy tracking systems, together with state policies designed to increase the production and use of renewable energy, could provide one key element to helping states reduce the carbon intensity of their power sector.
Join Jennifer Martin (Center for Resource Solutions) and David Farnsworth (Regulatory Assistance Project) to explore the ways in which states are using renewable energy today, and discuss how the functionality of existing regional renewable energy tracking systems can be used by states to track renewable energy and support compliance with the Clean Power Plan.
This webinar will draw on several recent collaborations between the Center for Resource Solutions and RAP to address the use of renewable energy to comply with the Clean Power Plan.
