Clean Energy Action Plan for States
Synapse contributed four chapters to EPA's guidebook of policies that states can implement to advance clean energy activities. These chapters address:
- integrating energy efficiency and renewables into air quality planning,
- integrating energy efficiency and renewables into state and regional energy planning,
- identifying and describing the financial incentive (and disincentive) mechanisms for clean energy and energy efficiency associated with state-level ratemaking structures for electric and gas utilities, and
- the role of clean energy in integrated resource planning and portfolio management.
The guidebook can be found on the EPA's website here: http://epa.gov/cleanenergy/stateandlocal/guidetoaction.htm.
Project completed in December 2005.
