Clean Energy Action Plan for States

Client:

Synapse contributed four chapters to EPA's guidebook of policies that states can implement to advance clean energy activities.  These chapters address:

  1. integrating energy efficiency and renewables into air quality planning,
  2. integrating energy efficiency and renewables into state and regional energy planning,
  3. 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
  4. 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.
