The RPS Collaborative serves as a forum for the exchange of experiences and lessons learned regarding the implementation of state Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) policies. RPSs have been established by 29 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.

The RPS Collaborative was established to advance dialogue and cooperation among a broad network of state and federal government officials, renewable energy certificate tracking system administrators, NGO experts, industry representatives, and other stakeholders. The Collaborative offers a free bimonthly newsletter, occasional webinars, reports, and opportunities for information exchange. The RPS Collaborative has published a large number of useful reports and papers over the past 10 years. They are available on our RPS Publications page, along with relevant reports produced by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.

The Collaborative provides an opportunity for participants to learn about and discuss issues that states face in administering renewable portfolio standards and achieving their RPS goals. The Collaborative monitors and reports on RPS trends and on external factors (e.g., technology developments, renewable energy price trends, federal policies) that impact RPS programs.
