CESA Webinar: America’s Power Plan – Wholesale Market Design and Distributed Generation

October 2, 2013 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

This webinar, presented by the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) for the State-Federal RPS Collaborative, is the second in a two-part series featuring authors from America’s Power Plan, an October 2013 toolkit for state and local decision makers developed by more than 150 of the nation’s top energy experts. This report is the first national effort to take a comprehensive look at the challenges faced by the electric power system and outline potential policy and market design solutions. More information on America’s Power Plan is available at: americaspowerplan.com.

The focus of this webinar is:

  1. “Aligning Power Markets to Deliver Value,” which examines market design measures that enable power system planners to meet changing needs with the lowest cost, most competitive resources.
  2. “Distributed Generation Policy: Supporting Generation on Both Sides of the Meter,” which discusses five key public policies for supporting distributed generation.
