Wednesday, May 18, 2016, 5:30pm CDT
Posted by Azita Ahmadzadeh
Renewable Energy Portfolios- - what are they? Most utilities address sustainability and the promotion of green technologies though meeting the requirements of state Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS). Presently, 29 states plus the District of Columbia have an RPS. These standards require utilities supplying electricity to retail customers in the state to achieve a certain percentage of their supply in renewable energy. Utilities can meet the obligation through developing their own renewable facilities or purchasing renewable energy. In either case, the obligation is met through retiring Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), which are tradable commodities that represent the renewable energy created from a facility’s electrical production. This presentation discusses RPS programs in the United States, the regulatory and transactional framework for RECs and the various REC markets.Read more
