The EPA Clean Power Plan and State RPS Programs (6.23.2016) from Clean Energy Group on Vimeo.

epa cover no borderThis webinar covered highlights from a recent RPS Collaborative report on the relationship between EPA’s Clean Power Plan (CPP) and state RPSs. The report’s author, Ed Holt of Ed Holt & Associates, discussed a range of topics that will help states plan if the CPP goes forward. Topics included the options states have when they develop state plans, the role of RPS programs in helping states achieve emission targets under the CPP, whether renewable energy certificates used for RPS compliance or voluntary claims are counting the same thing that is being used to measure CPP performance, and how existing REC tracking system infrastructure could help market participants track ownership of CPP compliance instruments and help states verify their CPP performance.

The paper is available on the CESA website here.
