This report reviews numerous voluntary renewable energy purchase markets in the United States. Sales, customer participation, community programs, and tradable certificate pricing are explored from several perspectives to identify market trends and opportunities for future growth.
The authors of this report examine feed-in tariff (FIT) design for geothermal energy production. They argue that the FIT can be a key factor in reducing the risk associated with developing geothermal resources for energy production.
This spreadsheet-based model can be used to estimate the delivered cost of energy for power plants, including the levelised cost of energy as well as transmission and distribution (T&D).
This website portal contains the country-by-country compilation of the International Energy Agency's (IEA's) Energy Policy Reviews. These reports provide an annual overview of each country's energy consumption, energy intensity, and deployment.
This website was created as a joint initiative between the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and the University of Maryland in order to develop new opportunities to train university students in the following interdisciplinary areas: (1) integrated assessment modeling; (2) technology strategi
This report provides an overview of renewable portfolio standards (RPS) policies in the United States. The report includes information about the design, early experience, and project impacts of RPS programs.
Facing a sustained increase in the demand for electricity, many countries are concerned about how to add new capacity that is sufficient, reliable, secure, and least-cost.
This paper explores how alternative resources have affected state renewable portfolio standards in the United States. These resources—and energy efficiency and carbon intensity of traditional fuels—can change the landscape of how clean energy standards will be implemented.
This report details early implementation of renewable portfolio standards around the United States and examines lessons learned and policy interactions. The authors detail design elements, solar set-asides and limitations to implementation.
