A Survey of State-Level Cost and Benefit Estimates of Renewable Portfolio Standards

HELD: Tuesday, June 10, 2014
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM MDT
Review the Webinar presentation for A Survey of State-Level Cost and Benefit Estimates of Renewable Portfolio Standards.
More than half of U.S. states have renewable portfolio standards (RPS) in place and have collectively deployed approximately 46,000 MW of new renewable energy capacity through year-end 2012. Most of these policies have five or more years of implementation experience. In this webinar, analysts from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory discuss findings in their recent paper, which surveys and summarizes cost and benefit estimates of state-level RPS and examines the methods used to create these estimates. Understanding RPS benefits and costs can assist policymakers who are evaluating or considering RPS policies.
