2014 National Summit on RPS

Date: 9/22/2014 to 9/23/2014

Location: Washington, DC

This information was last updated on August 11, 2014

Funded by DOE and the Energy Foundation and hosted by the Clean Energy States Alliance, the Summit explores developments and trends related to state renewable portfolio standards (RPSs) and provides opportunities to network with people across the country who are most engaged in implementing and analyzing state RPSs. Summit topics include how the Environmental Protection Agency's carbon regulations may impact state RPSs; different states' methodologies for determining the costs of an RPS; the status of Commerce Clause cases with potential impacts on RPSs; and the intersection among RPSs, net metering, and other solar policies.

Funded by the U.S. Department of Commerce National Institute of Standards and Technology, the SMART Wind Consortium will connect more than 80 collaborators to form consensus on near-term and mid-term plans needed to increase cost competitiveness of U.S. distributed wind manufacturers through the use of advanced manufacturing techniques. The Distributed Wind Energy Association, supported by eFormative Options and Wind Advisors Team, is conducting face-to-face meetings and conference calls with members of four consortia subgroups: mechanical subsystems, support structures, electrical subsystems, and composite subsystems.

Each of these consortia groups will include university and laboratory researchers, U.S. distributed wind original equipment manufacturers, manufacturing extension partners, and U.S. component manufacturers. The goal of these meetings is to become acquainted with the interested stakeholders and to brainstorm possible cost-reducing strategies that will lead to evolutionary product and manufacturing improvements.
