Today the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) released a new report titled Potential RPS Markets for Renewable Energy Generators. The report, written by Ed Holt of Ed Holt & Associates, provides information regarding where a renewable energy generator in a particular state or Canadian province can possibly sell its renewable energy certificates in order to meet the demand created by a renewable portfolio standard (RPS).
The report, which was made possible by funding from the U.S. Department of Energy and the Energy Foundation and is a product of CESA’s State-Federal RPS Collaborative, contains data that has never been previously compiled for the entire country. A user-friendly component has been added to this report in the form of an interactive online map, where users can select a state or province and see a list of potential RPS markets.
“This will be a valuable resource for project developers, state RPS administrators, and other people interested in renewable energy markets,” noted CESA Executive Director Warren Leon.
The full report and the interactive map are available for free on CESA’s website:
