Join us to hear Cliona Robb discuss the
role of Local Communities and the opportunities for advancement
of renewable energy and energy efficiency under EPA's 2015
Clean Power Plan.
EPA's final rule under Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act
is known as the Clean Power Plan (CPP) and was released on
August 3, 2015. The CPP allows states to meet state-specific
goals through a mix of strategies, including energy efficiency,
renewable energy, and demand-side management. The EPA is establishing
a Clean Energy Incentive Program (CEIP) to reward early investments
in wind and solar generation, as well as demand-side energy
efficiency serving low-income communities, that deliver results
during 2020 and/or 2021.
this presentation you will learn
The allowances EPA makes for emission rate credits (ERCs)
available to states that incentivize these investments
incentives provided by the EPA to encourage energy efficiency
investments in low-income communities# Which Energy efficiency
programs-including ratepayer programs implemented by utilities
and overseen by states and also non-ratepayer programs operated
by states-are most likely to offer the most cost effective
means for compliance under the pending EPA rule.
Where to learn more about the CPP and options for integrating
energy efficiency and renewable energy strategies into state
compliance plans, and how these options may impact state
economic development and resiliency efforts.
How principles developed by the 3 N Group regarding how
energy efficiency efficiency programs could be used as one
way to comply with the CPP's emission reduction requirements.
