Power Generation & Infrastructure Initiative

Advances policies and power market reforms to facilitate expansion of the U.S. renewable energy markets

Overview

ACORE’s Power Generation & Infrastructure Initiative develops and advocates for a suite of policy and power market reforms that maximize the impacts of the multi-year extensions of the wind and solar energy tax credits, facilitate achievement of the U.S. commitments in the Paris Agreement, and help renewable energy to become the dominant source of power in America. With a diverse membership spanning all constituencies in the renewable energy sector, ACORE is uniquely positioned to expand demand and develop targeted opportunities for renewable energy in the U.S. power markets. The Initiative is focused on the following goals:

  • Renewable Energy Integration and Storage: Develop and advance power market reforms and financial structures to facilitate integration of renewable energy generation and use of energy storage at increasing scale
  • Electric Transportation: Accelerate the strategic build out of electric vehicle infrastructure in concert with expanded renewable energy generation to foster EV market growth
  • Corporate Procurement: Facilitate the procurement and integration of renewable energy into the power generation portfolios of leading American companies
  • Market Expansion: Promotion of policies and market structures that promote demand for renewable energy, including the Clean Power Plan and efforts to achieve the US commitments in the Paris Agreement

Activities

The Initiative Advisory Committee informs initiative activities and supports consensus building across the renewable energy sector. Members of the Advisory Committee participate on regular coordinating calls and in-person meetings to identify market opportunities and strategic areas for ACORE engagement. Key activities include:

  1. Bi-annual meetings and deliverables designed to help corporate electricity consumers procure renewable energy
  2. Supporting Clean Power Plan implementation through joint comments, state outreach and engagement with EPA
  3. Advocating the development of a regional transmission organization in the Western U.S. to facilitate greater renewable energy deployment via collaboration with CAISO and other stakeholders
  4. Member-authored best practices and case studies about power market reforms, storage, EV infrastructure, integration solutions and other timely topics
