Renewable Portfolio Standards: Status, Opportunities, and Threats

You are here

This Webinar is Public: Free to SEIA members and non-members.

Date: Thursday, November 21, 2013

Time: 1:00-2:00 p.m. EST


Renewable portfolio standards (RPS) have proven to be one of the most effective policy mechanisms for driving demand of solar and renewables.  Currently, 29 states plus D.C. have RPS policies and 17 states plus D.C. have solar and distributed generation provisions.  Because RPS policies are key to driving solar development, SEIA is focused on defending and expanding RPS policies around the country.  Join Galen Barbose, Principle Scientific Engineering Associate of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and Rick Umoff, Counsel and Regulatory Affairs Manager of SEIA’s State Affairs team, for an in-depth look at the current status of RPS policies.  Galen Barbose will lead a data-driven discussion focused on RPS compliance levels, the impact on solar and distributed generation, and lessons learned from RPS policies thus far.  Rick Umoff will identify opportunities and threats related to RPS policies, updating members on SEIA’s approach and discussing how members can make an impact.

Attendees will learn.....

  • Updates on status of RPS policies throughout the United States
  • Identification of opportunities and threats related to current RPS policy
  • Learning more about how SEIA addresses RPS opportunities and threats, and ways in which members can do the same
