ACORE State of Industry Webinar: Growing Utility Demand for Renewables

State of the Industry Webinar: Growing Utility Demand for Renewables

Thursday, July 25, 2019 | 3:00-4:30pm ET

Many investor-owned utilities are proactively transitioning to renewable energy to achieve internal sustainability goals, take advantage of cost competitiveness, meet increasing customer demand, and get ahead of aggressive state legislation. More utilities are seeking to own renewable assets while continuing to offtake renewable power from PPAs, in pursuit of high-penetration renewable energy across their portfolios. Speakers on this webinar will discuss:

  • Utility decarbonization strategies
  • The growing use of build-transfer agreements for utility ownership
  • How utilities are tracking increased renewable generation in their portfolios and allowing customers to take credit for it, such as Xcel Energy’s Certified Renewable Percentage program and MidAmerican Energy’s GreenAdvantage program
  • The opportunity for renewables growth in states without aggressive policy targets
